June 2021 Book Wrap Up

June was a blurry and barely-there month for me. I don’t remember what I did, what I read or what books I bought. I think this year is going by extremely fast, which is a good thing but also, when I look back to 2021 so far, I can’t remember anything worth mentioning. … More June 2021 Book Wrap Up

Craftpod’s Summer Box 2021

I’m not a summer person. I guess that’s obvious by the name of this blog, so I wasn’t excited it was already June, but I was excited that a new season meant a new Craftpod. I had zero expectations this time because their boxes this past year have been so varied I don’t know what to expect anymore, and that’s part of the fun! … More Craftpod’s Summer Box 2021

May 2021 Book Wrap Up

I can’t believe it’s finally June 1st as I write this. May felt so long that I couldn’t remember which books I read this month and which ones were from April. I’m glad I use Goodreads to keep track of my reading because, honestly, I read nine books in May, but I swear some of these feel like I read them months ago. … More May 2021 Book Wrap Up

A Bumblebee Embroidery

Have you ever been in an embroiderer’s living room and looked at their hoop collection and noticed a bee embroidery hanging on the wall? Creating one bumblebee embroidery, usually surrounded by flowers with the bee in the centre, is like a rite of passage in an embroiderer’s life. … More A Bumblebee Embroidery

Creating a keyring embroidery

This month’s Love Embroidery magazine, issue 14, came with a keyring embroidery project that I was very excited to try. The embroidery, though, a floral design with woven wheel roses, wasn’t my style. So I decided to get my watercolours out to design a simple embroidery that would look good inside a tiny hoop. … More Creating a keyring embroidery

April 2021 Book Wrap Up

April went by so fast! It’s so weird that it’s May already. I feel like my brain is still in March. I read eight books this month, which seems to be my monthly average. I also tried listening to an audiobook for the first time, but I didn’t like it. I found myself daydreaming while I was supposed to be listening to the book. I think the monotonous voice plus the slow reading aren’t for me. I’ll stick with podcasts for now. … More April 2021 Book Wrap Up

Craftpod Spring 2021 – Cross-Stitching for the first time

The start of a new season doesn’t mean much for most people, but for me, it means there’s a new Craftpod to explore, and the Spring box was a good one.

I’ve never been a fan of cross stitch, I’ve always considered it something older people do to pass the time. I’ve previously looked down on cross stitch. I don’t consider myself a snob, but I guess I am a bit snobby when it comes to stitching techniques. … More Craftpod Spring 2021 – Cross-Stitching for the first time

March 2021 Book Wrap Up

I don’t want to say this, but March was a low reading month for me. I discovered the BBC show Line Of Duty, and I’ve been binge-watching it every night, which is usually when I read. So don’t judge me! This month I’ve only read six books and a half. … More March 2021 Book Wrap Up
