I always get the itch to go on some weekend adventures when it starts getting warm again, and March always seems to be the month when I wake up from winter hibernation and remember how much… Continue reading #TBT: Alameda Flea Market
This is my third year to work on a year-long cross stitch project, and the second year to play along with the mystery stitch-along month by month.

I took an unintentional blogging break last week… let’s just call it Spring Break! The weather got warm and all I wanted to do was soak up the sun.
