I got an e-mail today that the Creative Chicks webring is no more. I must have sensed it, leading to yesterday's tour.
I was checking out the Rotation Stitcher's forum, thinking about joining. There's some chat about blogging on it, and I should check out those blogs, but one woman asked why she'd blog if she had the BB. And I have the opposite question, why would I join a BB when I can blog? It's not like I'd have much more to say for myself than I do here, and I'd have to spend a lot more time online to keep up with things. OTOH, I'd be making more connections with other stitchers. (In the meantime, I've joined cross-stitch meetup, and I'll go if we're around, although there's only one other person from my area signed up.) If I had a third hand, I'd wonder if there were enough stitchers like me to make a BB worth my while. The participants are more sophisticated stitchers (they all stitch the ladies and Teresa Wentzler designs) than most of the people on craftster from what I can tell, and that's a good thing, but you know I have the fear of others.
