I'm working on a secret project right now (even though I have eleventy-million things on my list of August goals), so I have nothing to show. I do, however, have a few interesting items I found in the news to share.

“Perhaps you belong to a cross-stitching club or the other end of the spectrum, a motorcycle or classic car club.”But what of the women who stitch these?
Aren’t Stitchers Dumb?
From a Salt Lake Tribune article on the two women chiefs-of-staff for the senators from Utah:
[Her bag] also holds her latest cross-stitch or needlepoint work and she surprises people when she starts stitching in the middle of staff meetings or negotiations with Democratic staffers. They are more surprised when they realize she has understood and distilled everything that has gone on.
Her sense of humor can be as sharp and pointed as her needles - and can rub some the wrong way, say those who know her.
Teehee—don’t anyone tell them she’s stitching with blunt needles! But, yeah, how come you can't listen and stitch at the same time? Is it because others find it difficult to walk and chew gum?
And Men are Great at Everything
