Hello fall! I honestly wasn't sure the temperatures would ever cool off. While I welcome the warmth of summer, I am grateful the temps finally dipped below 90 degrees. I'm tired of sweating all the time. I don't know how Texans do it. Plus, I have new boots for fall... Continue reading

I've been on a patriotic kick this year, and instantly fell in love with this Dyeing To Stitch club piece from Plum Street Samplers. The house was a bear to stitch, and I'm still going through and filling in the white mortar between the bricks, but at least the house... Continue reading

Holy Heatwave, Batman. Did you guys cool off yet? Good Lord it was hot this weekend. I like summer, but not when you could legit cut the humidity with a carving knife. It's too much. I was dehydrated yesterday morning at 7am, and all I did was sleep. All of... Continue reading

Thanks, Dawn! The ravens' eyes are the black beads that are represented by the circle symbol. I wasn't sure I liked it when I stitched the beads I actually ended up leaving the beads out.
Thanks, Robin! It's always a pleasure to read your lovely comments! What have you been working on?
Well, it's been a minute since I got it together and posted something, so without going into alllllll the gory details of why these past six months have literally flown past my eyeballs, I'll just dive right into my latest finish. Patriotic Poppies! I've been holding onto this pattern for... Continue reading

Welcome fall! I feel like yesterday it was March and I was losing my mind at work, and next Thursday it's Thanksgiving already. This Thursday, they're calling for snow in the forecast. I say no thank you and good day. Snow is inappropriate for this time of year. I better... Continue reading

Thank you, Sherry! I hope you add this one to your pile - it's gorgeous and it's such a fun stitch.
Hi Robin! Thank you! This was so fun to stitch. I feel like I say that about so many pieces that I do, but this one really was. I agree - I want the whole alphabet! Thank you for the suggestion about the Best Press. I may have to grab some of that and give it a try! Have a great week!
Hello friends! It's finally warming up to feel more like summer, and I'm loving every second. The past two weeks I've taken a break from Christmas stitching (my favorite kind of stitching, no matter the time of year), and worked on CE Cricket "Be Ye Thankful". I was feeling the... Continue reading

I don't know about you guys, but there is a serious case of cabin fever in our house. Winter will not let go. Yesterday, we had G O R G E O U S summer-like weather, and today, it's chilly and rainy. Perfect stitching weather, although I really am anxious... Continue reading

Hello friends. Good Lord it's been a while. Fall came and went. Christmas came and went. New Year's came and went. And now Easter is fast approaching, which means spring has to be right around the corner, right? It does't seem like it with yet another Nor'easter looming for Sunday... Continue reading

Hi Marie! I absolutely love your DD albums every year, and I had the same anxiety about three-four years ago that got me off the "document every single day" track. I document the entire Christmas season and New Year's, not just the 25 days. For my family, the Christmas season starts the day after Christmas with a trip to downtown Philly for the light show at the old Wanamaker's building. That's still in November, so when I decided I wanted to capture all of it, that's when I moved off of the 25 days and just documented everything as it came. I can't wait to see your album! I love the things you've put together so far. I'm hoping to get some new Christmas-themed embellishments and journal cards to spruce things up a bit this year, plus use up some of my stash.

Hi, Charlene!! I'm so glad you found my blog :-) I feel your pain! I really, really do! I recently was able to start a new block after re-stitching one of the two blocks that were wrong, so I plan to get an update out to you all soon!
Robin!! I cant' believe i missed this comment! As soon as I saw that you said that the final Christmas Quaker piece came out, I dropped everything and ran to my LNS and snagged one. It's in my (ever-growing) to-do pile!! Hope you're having a great weekend!
Well, friends. Here we are in August! I can hardly believe it. We've had some blistering hot days, but the past few days have been less humid with cooler days coming next week. Summer so far has been busy; the weekends have been packed with activities, with work keeping the... Continue reading
