A Way With Words

I got my stuff ready for July’s Project – cut the right-sized bit of linen, gathered my threads, found something to watch – and went straight back to June’s.

Which is now nearly finished. Just the last few stitches and the outlining to do.

A Way with Words

I think part of why I went back to this pattern was the relative mindlessness – cross-stitching squares. Nice and easy, straightforward. And now I’ve got to the point where, really, I need to finish this one before I can move on to July’s teapot-clock. At least up to the outlining.

POTM: Winning Words

I like Scrabble. I like words. I expect that’s why I like the game. I’m having trouble with words at the moment, or perhaps it’s the ideas which are the problem, not the words.

I’m hoping my Project this month will help with appeasing the Guardian of Ideas.


In the manner of leaving a dish of milk and some cookies for the brownies in exchange for doing some small house-work chores during the night, perhaps a teapot and plate of biscuits.
