I kind of love the internet.
As an introvert, I find it easier to "socialize" online. Meeting people with similar interests, interacting as little or as much as I want. It's awesome. And I've made some very dear friends thanks to the interwebz. People who lived many, many states away that I now spend time with (when I can), and are as dear (or dearer) to me than people I've physically "known" my entire life.
In the stitching community, I also find generosity to be crazy. I find it amazing when it's directed my way (and yet I routinely send things to other people, because I can, and I don't think anything of it). I really do believe in some sort of karma or pay-it-forward. I give things to people, people give things to me, people give things to other people, and I don't think any of us think twice, except hoping to spread a little joy or happiness.
And I'm always happy.
And I got something awesome in the main yesterday! Thanks to someone on
a cross stitch BB I live on (The Wagon on Yuku), I have these beauties
That's the Brittercup Seasonal motifs, which I think will look stunning in whatever overdyes I decide about. I've always loved their super simplistic artistic swirls. And Diamonds in Squares! Which I had, and gave away, and then realized I really wanted again (and ZOMG, is not in any of the "best of" books... what up Leisure Arts?), but now it's becoming more of a pain to find it, but now I don't have to! yay!!!. And those stickers are SO CUTE. I freakin' love Halloween!
And just as a total coincidental thing - I was planning on stitching tonight on some gorgeous purple fabric someone gifted me once upon a time.
