Finished With Love & Back to Pumpkinville

Welcome to another update on my current cross stitching. This week I have been stitching on two projects, both from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery, With Love & Pumpkinville. While I always enjoy every project from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery, With Love was particularly enjoyable to stitch. First, I loved the fact that it was a... Continue Reading →

Alice In Wonderland: A Childhood Reverie

Much like returning to your childhood home, rereading a childhood favorite can be bittersweet. As a kid I loved the story of Alice In Wonderland, it held a mesmerizing kinda magic. Having just finished reading it as an adult, I still see the magic, but I also see the absurdity. Lewis Carroll was, I believe,... Continue Reading →

Stitching With Love

Happy WIP Wednesday! Welcome to an update on my current cross stitching. This week I have been stitching on With Love from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.

Sending Love To Australia

My heart is breaking with all the images that are coming from Australia. My heart wants to reach out with all my love.

This year should, hopefully, be a nice balance between active WIPs and new starts. I also have plans for getting... Continue Reading →

My Year In Stitches 2019

To say that I am glad 2019 is over would be an understatement. It was one of the most difficult years we (hubby & I) have faced together since the first year we were married. Thankfully, I had my stitching as therapy and hubby has his model trains. Unfortunately, illnesses and other tragedies created obstacles... Continue Reading →

What I Read in 2019

Somehow every year I just barely miss my reading challenge goal. How many books do you have to read in a year in order to keep your bibliophile card? Regardless, I am still an avid lover of books. This year I spent time in multiple genres, exploring time travel, futuristic fairytales, historical fiction, cozy mysteries,... Continue Reading →

Heading Into Wonderland

To bookend my yearly reading activities, I thought I would try to start and end 2020 reading a favorite and/or classic book. Thankfully, my very thoughtful husband gifted me a beautiful classic edition copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. This is one of my all-time favorite stories, however it's been a long... Continue Reading →
