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
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
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
Seven months ago, I got an ad on Instagram promoting a 6-month subscription for Love Embroidery, a monthly magazine for embroidery enthusiasts.

New month, new books to review. This month I read seven books, including two graphic novels. I considered reading only romance books because it’s February, but they’re not really my thing. It’s hard to concentrate on a romance book when I’m too busy rolling my eyes at how perfect everything is. So instead, I went the thriller + zombie road, of course. … More February 2021 Book Wrap Up
I’m not much of a Valentine’s day fan, but I like to use it as an excuse to do something with my partner. Pre-covid we’d have gone out for dinner, something we rarely do because we’re both indoor people. But having something to “celebrate” forces us out of the flat, I get to wear something other than joggers, and he finally decides to shave. … More A Valentine’s Day Embroidery
I read 8 books this month, mostly fiction, although I’ve also read a few non-fiction guides about conscious fashion and veganism. As this wrap up is something I want to do every month, I’ve created a set of categories that I plan to use on every post to keep things organised. What can I say? I’m a virgo, we like lists and categorising things. … More January 2021 Book Wrap Up
