2021 and 2022 Peppermint Purple Stitch-a-longs

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 […]

Review: Atomic Habits by James Clear

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 […]

2020 SAL Finished!

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 ordered 32-count white Lugana to match this one and received 28-count. So now I’m wait­ing for a new order of fab­ric (I fig­ure I’ll eventually […]

Review: We Are Meridians by S. Ghali

WE ARE MERIDIANS: BOOK ONE by S. Ghali My rat­ing: 2 of 5 stars There I was, mer­ri­ly read­ing along in this sci­ence fic­tion book. Then WHAM, S. Ghali ruined it com­plete­ly. How? They depict­ed the main female char­ac­ter as hav­ing an irre­sistible attrac­tion to the alien who was her ene­my min­utes before, a mem­ber of […]

Review: Sucker Punch by Laurell K. Hamilton

Suck­er Punch by Lau­rell K. Hamil­ton My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars Bor­ing! If I had­n’t been hav­ing trou­ble find­ing enough to read, I would­n’t have fin­ished it. 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 […]

Blackwork Project 2

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.

Stitching Post

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.
