Thanks, Robin!! I hope you had a great weekend!
Thanks, Terri!! I'm anxious to get my SoHRH done, but I have to fix my major f-up first....which is taking some time to get the motivation to do...... You should totally do HoHRH! Houses are a beast, but the finished product is so worth it!!
Thanks, Jamie!!

Kathy Barrick came out of retirement last year and hasn't disappointed since. I have a few of her newer graphs in my "you're next, I swear" pile, including "Heaven and Nature Sing". I had my eye on this one for a while, finally picked it up recently at my LNS... Continue reading

We all know how I feel about coffee. It's the elixir of life. Make it bulletproof, and I'm even happier. When Paulette released "Merry Brew", I snatched it up just as quick as it was placed on the shelves. It combines two of my most favorite things ever: Christmas and... Continue reading

This piece is, by far, one of my absolute favorites that I've stitched. I've done a lot of cool pieces over the years, but since this one looks so much like Maleficent, my all-time favorite Disney villainess, Raven Queen ranks high on the list. This dress. If it wouldn't cost... Continue reading

YOU GUYS. It's been like, foreverandaday. I mean, what have you guys even been up to????? I was on travel for work two weeks ago in sunny CA, then off to San Antonio and the Riverwalk where the best people watching occurs, then back to frigid DC. Thank God it... Continue reading

I've been spending a ton of time feverishly stitching Raven Queen. She's at the point where, even though there is still a good amount left to stitch, I feel like I'm so close to the finish line, I can see it. I'm also terrified if I start another project, the... Continue reading

Thank you, Susan!! Yes!! Just stitching the word "Joy" would be a perfect gift. I LOVE how it's the base of the nativity, which is actually what drew me to this piece and made me buy it. It's so simple and beautiful. The 3-hour delay was fabulous, actually, you're right. I am extremely fortunate in that I can walk to work and I don't have to rely on the VRE or the Metro, so I took every bit of those 3 hours to get in gear and walk to the office!! Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!!

Yes!! For me, it's not so much the caffeine anymore, but just the warmth of fresh brewed coffee and the taste. Thank you so much for your kind words!! Hope you have a wonderful week!!

TGIF, you guys. Like, fo' realz. The struggle was real this week. How is it that short weeks always seem so daggone long?! The long holiday weekend was not long enough. Just sayin'. And Monday, we had 4-6 inches of snow which I had to trudge through to get more... Continue reading

Hi Robin!! Thank you!!! Cabin fever is just, UGH, right?! Thankfully we've been inundated with too much more, so hopefully that means spring is right around the corner!! :-)

Being snowed in always sounds so wonderful. Let's watch movies! Let's binge watch tv series we haven't gotten to yet!! Let's sit and stitch for hours and hours because we can't get out! Let's read tons of books from our book stack!!! I'm here to tell you that I'm about... Continue reading

Thanks, Terri! Yes, she loved it. She told me she's looking for a place to hang it in her bedroom so she can look at it every day :-) Thanks - I can't wait to share with everyone what I've been working on!
