Thanks, Robin!! Very nice! I keep seeing the Year in Chalk pieces online and I love them!! Enjoy!! PS - me, too!!! I really need to figure out how to get that back up there....
Thanks, Terri!! Snow where you are??? That's just insane. It's super cold here again, so I'm definitely staying in and stitching, too!!
What a rainy, cold Friday.....but at least this week is over and we can celebrate the weekend! Yes! First things first. You may have noticed the layout of my blog changed quite a bit. I realized that my blog was not reader friendly on mobile devices, and since I'm sure... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin! Well, I still have the Shores of Hawk Run going, and I have a few gifts I'm lining up the supplies for...but I may have to have another small going, too, since the gifts I'll be doing are on the bigger side. They'll be top secret until the gifts are given to the recipient, but I'll def do a post of them!!
Did you ever have one of those days where you felt just like Will Ferrell's character in "Zoolander"? That was me yesterday. All day. When I got home, I was totally wired to workout, but actually ended up feeling like I was too wired...if that even makes any sense.... Continue reading

It's no secret that I love old movies. Love them. TCM is in my "favorites" on my channel lineup, and I had a ton on my DVR back in Philly....but lost them all when I had to give that box up for a VA approved box. So sad. Recently, TCM... Continue reading

Haha I hope you splurged and got a really good donut!! Sometimes, there really is nothing better. Luck you with only getting rain - the snow was a major pain on Friday. Here's hoping that is the final winter weather we'll get!! Hope you had a great weekend and were able to stitch or craft!

Nice!! I'm marking that down, so I have an excuse to make them in June! Not that I really need one, but ya know. :-) One of these years, I'll have my act together enough to make pie for Pi Day....

Thanks, Robin! Yes - my next stop will be the shop out in Middletown! Have a great weekend!
What a week, friends, amiright?? And what's with the snow today?? Isn't it supposed to be spring?! So over it. But onto more important things, like donuts. Browned butter baked donuts from Joy the Baker, to be exact. Because, delicious. So, since it's Friday and it's snowing, and we needed... Continue reading

Haha yes! Come on down!
Hi Susan! No, I was there on Friday afternoon. What a lovely shop. Good for you! That's usually my plan - I have SO many patterns it's kinda ridiculous - but I wanted something new and fresh for my stash, so I did end up getting Beggar's Christmas (Threadwork Primitives), Spring Delivery (one of Plum Street's new market releases) and Patriotic Poppies (With Thy Needle) - I'm clearly on a patriotic kick. HA. Haha! One or four new charts coming from TSS! I love it.
HI Susan! No, I haven't heard of Deborah Crombie! I'll have to check out her books! Thank you for the recommendation! My nook is still kicking - the battery doesn't last as long as it should anymore, but it still works, so I'm not giving in just yet and getting a new one! I haven't heard how the newer ones are compared to the original - what is it about the Glowlight that you don't like? I know they're smaller - is the smaller size what does it?

Weekends go entirely too quickly. Just sayin'. The best part about this weekend, though?? I finally made it down to In Stitches, my new LNS! I haven't been shopping for stitch stuff in so long because of my move, so I was like a kid in a candy store when... Continue reading

So, I've been on a reading rampage. I haven't had much time over the past couple years to read much, and I miss it. This summer, I started making sure to carve out time to read, and flew through some pretty great books. Erik Larson is officially one of my... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin! The colors are great, and the gulls are so cute! Have a great rest of the week!
This warm spell we're having has me totally dreaming of summer. Long days on the beach. Margaritas for happy hour. Flip flops all day every day. You know the drill. Zac Brown says it best - "I got my toes in the water/Ass in the sand/Not a worry in the... Continue reading

Haha thanks, Robin!! Paper Source is one of my absolute favorite stores. It's a very dangerous place to walk into if you're looking for inspiration - dangerous in a good way, that is - because I always end up walking out with at least one new stamp and some new pretty notecards and fine paper!!! Enjoy your week!
And just like that, it's March. Not only is it March, but we're a week in already, and we just lost an hour. I will let you know when that is ever ok. Especially this past week, when I seem to have gone from unable to stay awake to completely... Continue reading

No, I haven't, but I keep picking that one up at the bookstore, and putting it down again. I'll have to check that one out, too! Thanks, Catherine!

What a week, friends. What a week. It even started with a holiday! Then, on that holiday, it snowed in DC. And people forgot how to drive and act like normal people. Thank God for AWD and the guys at Firestone who fixed my tire earlier in the day on... Continue reading

There have been quite a few times over the last two weeks where I've sat down and gone, "I need to write something," and then never did. I had all the greatest intentions of filling you in on the last two weeks, but, as I'm sure most (all) of you... Continue reading
