Hello stitchers! It has been some time since I have posted, but I have some very good reasons. I have been working on a campaign to help my Friend Andrea and her family get reunited. There are some horrible probate practices in Ohio that are wrecking not just her family, but the lives of many people that have sudden illnesses. We need to spread the word about her illness Anti-NMDAR Encephalitis, which is newly classified and is commonly misdiagnosed as schizophrenia. Please check out Reunite-R-Family to help Andrea and to help spread the word about this disease.
I also took a week to go visit family. I spent a good portion of my time with my dad, which was awesome. We gave him “The Best Birthday Ever”, went swimming in his lake, and I gave him another “ToeHead” painting to add to his collection.
This one is entitled “Who? Me?”, and was made especially for me by my buddy Daric. Daric is a great artist and you can see More of Daric Gill’s ToeHeads on Facebook or check out his artist blog for news on his many great bodies of work. WOSU, The local PBS affiliate, even did a segment on him for their Broad & High program. If you ever find yourself in Columbus you might see him working in a local coffee shop or riding one of his mopeds around town. He really is a very talented and super nice guy.
I injured a tendon in my right hand so I won’t be doing any stitching or charting for at least a few weeks. I am a pro at hurting myself while doing mundane things.
One of the other things I did this past couple weeks was join another fandom. I know, not that shocking. When I was at Marcon with my friend Rain this year, she talked about Welcome to Night Vale, and although I had heard about it I didn’t know what it was. Welcome to Night Vale, can only be described as a podcast of a news program in a fictitious town where strange things happen to strange people in strange ways. Rain said I should just listen, that I would like it. She was so right. I told her I had started listening and that I loved Night Vale. Then she told me that she and her daughter had gotten into watching Supernatural. They are apparently “in deep”! I am so proud.
Today, thanks to my new found fandom, I bring you a knitting chart of the Welcome to Night Vale cover. It would make a great pillow for any non-existent angel you couldn’t possibly know, or even that faceless woman that secretly lives in your house.
