WIP Wednesday

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

2018 Music City MQG Quilting Retreat

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.

Into the Jungle Cross Stitch: January 2018

I’m challenging myself to use linen instead of aida for this project, and it’s going pretty well.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

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!

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.

Reading Life: January 2018

The first month of 2018 has come and gone already… and we’re halfway through February already, oops. My goal of reading every day is still going strong, and it’s reinvigorated my reading life; I always forget how much a good book improves my mood until I make the time to read. But even though I’m… Continue reading Reading Life: January 2018
