I usually just lay it down and forget it for a while. Otherwise, I'd never get anything finished. LOL

I also laminate some of my patterns and that way I can use a wipe off maker any were on the pattern and when I'm all done I clean the whole thing off until I use it again.

I handle interruptions well, except when I'm doing the kitchener stitch. I announce to the whole house before I start. They all know to leave me alone. I then let them know when I'm finished. They know to keep the lap fungus cat away from me as well.

Lap fungus cat! What a good idea about the lamination...you know, I'm such an office supply geek, I don't know why I didn't think of some of these on my own. Funny how a new hobby or whatever sometimes seems so set apart from things you already know...like a new life or something!

I have printed several of my shorter patterns on 4X6-inch recipe card like things (I do mine in Publisher and print the front and back and fold before laminating.) After I laminate, I punch a hole at the top and then use a Binder Ring to connect them together. I have some slipper patterns that I have gotten off the net and the round dishcloth pattern and several more.

I really need to print off some more and laminate them to add to my collection. =) Oh and just a thought I had; What a wonderful way to do up your favorite stitches so you can always have them on hand. I have a book with lots of them that would be a great start. Plus there are loads on the net!

I don't have a lap fungus cat, I have a Velcro Dog, who is getting VERY upset that she's not allowed in Mama's lap anymore. Her nickname is also Drama Dog, because when I speak sharply to her about moving her nose more than two inches away from my face, she hops down and sits in her Sulking Chair with a hurt attitude.

Useful post? Oh, yeah..... Um, I haven't done anything too difficult yet.

We have a Fungus Amoung-Us Cat and a Drama Queen Dog. They haven't quite figured out that they aren't the same breed yet,though. They have been together ever since the cat was about 3 months old and the dog 5 weeks old. Their birthdays are 1 month and 1 day apart. They are the funniest things. The cat grooms the dog and then the dog will try to groom the cat. They chase each other, too. They are our fur babies. And they both sleep with us. At the foot of the bed.
