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 […]
I just finished this week’s section of the Peppermint Purple Stitch-a-Long 2020!
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.

Plinky asked, “If you were going to open up a shop, what would you sell? Food? Clothing? Books?” Bookstore (IBC) Books and needlework items! My former partner and I used to dream about opening a combination book/stitching/gaming/coffee shop. Of course, independent bookstores are nearly dead, and even Borders is dead now thanks to Amazon. Little needlework […]
