I got my fabric for the 2021 Peppermint Purple stitch-a-long (finally) and stitched the grid. Now I’m waiting on a shipment of thread so that I can be sure to have enough of it to finish the whole piece in one dye lot. The post office lost the fabric for the 2022 stitch-a-long for a few […]
Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones by James Clear My rating: 4 of 5 stars The book is good except for the endless sports analogies. I should have known this would happen since the book opens with the tale of a major injury the author suffered while […]
I finally finished the 2020 Peppermint Purple Stitch-a-long! I wanted to start the 2021 SAL right away but realized that the fabric I was sent wasn’t what I ordered.

I thought there was too much talking in Serpentine, but this volume takes the cake. While Anita is ostensibly in a small Michigan town because a therianthrope has […]

All caught up with Peppermint Purple’s 2020 Stitch-a-long, week 25!
The Blackwork Bands project designed by Peppermint Purple is done and added to my page of finished needlework pieces.
I’m almost finished with the second blackwork project I started to keep me busy each week while waiting for the next pattern drop from the 2020 Stitch-A-Long. This one is also by Peppermint Purple. She calls it Blackwork Bands.
I mentioned on my needlecrafts page that I’ve been enjoying blackwork lately thanks to Peppermint Purple’s 2020 Stitch-A-Long A Year of Blackwork. I described it to someone and she said she’d like to see it, so here’s a photo of what I’ve done so far.
