Wow --- that's impressive! (*adds to memories*)

This took a long time to put together. But I'm a librarian, I'm compelled to collect random bits of data and organize it. =)

Thanks a lot from one of Russian cross-stitchers:)

You are welcome!
18th-Dec-2008 03:42 am (UTC)
Oh, wow. I know many of these, but not all, and this is exactly what I love to stitch. Thanks!
18th-Dec-2008 03:55 am (UTC)
You are welcome!

Holy bookmarks, batman!

*snicker*
18th-Dec-2008 06:16 am (UTC)
Wow! Thank you so much. May I ask your permission to post this list in my Russian blog? I have many cross-stitching friends, and only few of them subscribe to this community..
18th-Dec-2008 06:26 am (UTC)
You are welcome!

Go for it. I am a Librarian, I give away info for a living.
18th-Dec-2008 07:16 am (UTC)
I think being a librarian is a very interesting job. I envy you, just a little bit :) Thank you!
18th-Dec-2008 03:04 pm (UTC)
It can be a very interesting job...but then there are days where the most interesting question I get is "Where's the bathroom?" =)
18th-Dec-2008 07:52 pm (UTC)
I know what you mean, as I was on the other side for so many times :) I even used to hate libraries, especially the one called Foreign Literature Library here in Moscow where I went to work on my graduation paper. It was in 1996, and I had to persuade the librarians to give me English or American newspapers which were very hard to get in Russia those days. At that time I thought they were very mean to me - and now I think they were just tired of young girls like me :)

Sorry for the off-topic :)
18th-Dec-2008 10:28 pm (UTC)
No problem! I'm sorry you had such a hard time getting your materials. I can imagine how hard it must of been getting English or American papers! (I did my undergraduate degree in Russian History, so I can probably imagine better than most!) Librarians with rare or difficult to obtain materials can be...uh...um. Zealous! Yes, that's the word I want, zealous in their desire to protect them and keep them on the shelf, doing absolutely no good to anybody. =) I've always been amused by that view, but then again, I've never had to deal with it, I'm sure my attitude would change quite quickly if I ever did.
18th-Dec-2008 02:39 pm (UTC)
Nifty! Thanks!
18th-Dec-2008 03:06 pm (UTC)
You're welcome!
18th-Dec-2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
cool, thanks
18th-Dec-2008 07:09 pm (UTC)
From one librarian to another, thank you very much! This goes in my memories.
18th-Dec-2008 08:07 pm (UTC)
You are welcome...I actually have a VERY extensive set of bookmarks regarding all sorts of stuff. That was just 2 major headings...I have 18 =)
18th-Dec-2008 08:17 pm (UTC)
So do I. But I've never spent much time developing cross-stitch links. I started collecting patterns back in the dark ages before the internet (I started cross-stitching in the early 70s), and I still have more patterns than I have lifetime to do them in. My needlework time is split between cross-stitch and quilting (and the occasional crocheted afghan), too. So there's not been much of an incentive for me to go looking.

And now I don't have to [g].
18th-Dec-2008 10:29 pm (UTC)
I didn't set out to develop the links...they just kinda...evolved. There's so much good stuff out there now, its hard to keep track of. I just keep the stuff I'd like to be able to find again. =)
19th-Dec-2008 12:42 am (UTC)
That's the way most of my links have been acquired, too. I go searching for something specific, find it, think, you know, kiddo, you might need this again someday, and a couple of clicks later, I have Yet Another Bookmark.

I need to sort through them again one of these days, but that's getting to be a mammoth project anymore.
