If you follow me on social media, you know that one of my favorite things to do is to craft up your neighborhood. Over the years, I’ve gone to a lot of places and plan to keep the tradition going for years to come. Now it’s finally time to chronicle all of the places — some unique and some ordinary — I’ve gone to.
I do follow serveral simple “rules” when I craft up the neighborhood. The first one is that I have to be able to cross-stitch there. Even if it’s a few stitches or a few hundred, I don’t post a pic unless I can cross-stitch which means that I have to be able to use both hands, and be able to stop for at least a few minutes.
The second, which should come as no surprise, is that it has a be legal to take pictures there. No crossing into private property, no matter the Instagram-worthiness of the pic, no sneaking my supplies to various places when I know it’s not allowed. This is especially relevant right now when various states/countries have their own COVID-protocols. Please, follow local/state regulations — that picture is not worth you getting in trouble, trust me.
Finally, I take all the pictures myself. It can be a little awkward and Babe has certainly gotten a few BTS pics of me looking very odd trying to position the q-snap and the view into a way that works with the pic.
From sitting on my porch (crafting up your own neighborhood is also very important!) to traveling to various states, let’s go on a virtual journey of crafting up everyone’s neighborhood.
If you have any suggestions of where to go, specific or general, toss me a comment. And if you decide to go #craftingupyourneighborhood, let me know!
