Another weekly check-in on my works in progress! Surprise Cross Stitch I’ve made a bit more progress, but I haven’t had as much time to cross stitch in the past week – only when I have time to watch a show during naptime (still making my way through The Crown season 2!). There’s not much… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
I’m back on track with my goal to read every day, and finally all caught up. You can find these pics in my Instagram Stories too (although they disappear after 24 hours), but on the blog I’m also adding my daily thoughts on what I’m reading. @LadyKatieStitchery Here’s a look at what I read in… Continue reading Read Every Day: Week 7 and 8
The 2018 Music City MQG retreat was last weekend, and it was a blast! It rained all weekend, which made for a cozy three days of sewing uninterrupted from Friday to Sunday. The lodge at Henry Horton state park offered a big open space with a kitchen full of endless snacks at one end, room… Continue reading 2018 Music City MQG Quilting Retreat

I’m challenging myself to use linen instead of aida for this project, and it’s going pretty well. There’s a learning curve since you have to count the threads differently, so I’ve made a couple… Continue reading Into the Jungle Cross Stitch: January 2018
I’m still reading every day but I’m behind on posting about it… we’ll see if I can keep up the pace or not, but it’s been fun to track my reading! I just got back from the Music City MQG retreat, so while I’m getting back to the routine of life, it’s a good week… Continue reading Read Every Day: Week 5 and 6
Happy Valentine’s Day! Any day I get to celebrate with chocolate, handmade crafts, and kisses, is a good day. Yesterday we had a valentine play date at the house; I kept it super simple with a non-messy craft for the babies and chocolate for the ladies. I couldn’t decide on a “craft” up until the… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day!
Happy Galentine’s Day! I’m a little all over the place preparing for things to come: a valentine play date today, family coming to town later in the week, a quilting retreat this weekend.

But even though I’m… Continue reading Reading Life: January 2018
