SoS ’13 is winding down. YEAH!!! I am one repeat and some ribbing from finishing one pair, have one footie completed and I finished the pair I started during SoS ’12. Not bad for the arm. (Which I am going to address with a doctor, after much gnashing, wailing and denial)
With that done, (and eating up 3 months of the year) we needed a plan. So for the September portion of Cookie Made Me Do It, after much** discussion, we’re veering down a different kind of fiber path. Needlework.
Needlework is a broad term for the handicrafts of decorative sewing and textile arts. Anything that uses a needle for construction can be called needlework. The definition may expand to include related textile crafts such as a crochet hook, or tatting shuttles.
Since the definition of it is pretty broad, all y’all can play along. You! Yes! I am talking to you.
Embroidery, cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, and I think even weavettes should count since you use a needle to weave. Right?!? And if we’re going down that road, since a crochet hook counts, couldn’t we technically say an orifice hook and some wool counts too?

In other news, I really need to stop watching Monsters Inside Me. Or I need to make other people watch it with me. (They’re showing 5 or 6 in a row today) It’s interesting and informative, but DUDE! People who may have certain tendencies for cleanliness probably shouldn’t watch it.
* It’s either the infusion, or someone actually did throw me under the bus somewhere. Just sayin’
**If by much, I mean one blog comment and an e-mail or two. Oh, and not actually asking Cookie this time since she’s busy and tired over there.
