Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop #2: Using a Cross Stitch Stand

The first round of Stitching Bloggers blog hopping was a success! I loved reading all the posts and comments that everyone left around the blogosphere and I want to personally thank all of you for participating.

This month we’ve been talking a lot about using a stand while cross stitching, whether it’s a lap stand or a floor stand, and it seems to be a particularly hot topic so I thought we’d expand on that in the second round of blog hopping.

Here’s the blogging prompt for this hop:

Do you use a stand when you stitch? If so, tell us about it and share pictures if you’ve got them. If not, would you like to try using a stand? Do you have any tips or tricks around using a stand versus not using a stand?

How To Participate

To participate simply write a blog post on your own blog about the above topic and then at the end include this piece of code to display the link widget.

Including this on each participant’s response makes it easy for readers to “hop” from blog to blog to read about the topic, leave comments, and meet new bloggers.

After you’ve blogged your response just enter the link to your blog post here:
**note** Enter the direct link to your response, not the link to your blog’s homepage. That way blog hoppers will go straight to your response in this edition of the blog hop.

This blog hop’s link widget has been closed.

Use our banner (optional):

Including the banner on your post is optional, but appreciated as it helps identify the post as a blog hop posting and links to the category here on the site so others can click through and participate as well. You can just copy and paste this code to display the banner like I have at the top of this post:

Or if you prefer you can just link to the blog hop post from your response post. Either way, a link is always appreciated 🙂

Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop at STNA will be twice a month, on the 1st and 15th of each month. Be sure you’re on our newsletter list and you’ll get a reminder for each posting.

I look forward to seeing everyone’s responses for this round! Happy blogging and stitching 🙂

      I added your link to the linky widget 😉

      I tried to comment on your blog, but it keeps redirecting me to login to WordPress when I hit submit.
