Needlepoint Notes: Bag Patch Self-Finishing

I finished stitching this canvas last year, but I am so terrified of ruining a canvas by cutting into it, which is a requirement of finishing, I think there are multiple parts to that fear, the actual monetary cost of the canvas and threads, and then the labour cost of the time spent stitching. So … Continue reading Needlepoint Notes: Bag Patch Self-Finishing

Friday Favourites

I don't know if other people have already had this feeling this year, I feel like I am finally emerging from the pandemic. Trust me, I know it's not actually over, my entire professional life is dominated by it (although I did have a few hours break this week to make an info sheet on … Continue reading Friday Favourites

Saturday Scroll 10/23

Honestly, the media this week is pretty lackluster, there aren't a lot of good pieces this week. But: Penn Badgley also thinks Dan Humphrey is the worst. Joe Coulombe aka Trader Joe wrote a memoir, that sounds incredibly interesting from this synopsis, and I've only been to Trader Joe's once! I really wanted to go … Continue reading Saturday Scroll 10/23

I bought … Continue reading Wednesday Wants: Hill House Home Edition

Late Summer Needlepoint

Late summer is in my opinion, second only to the holidays for best season to needlepoint. It is so hot, and you have done most of your summer things and just want to sit by the water or in the air conditioning and stitch. Some of these are canvases I have in my stash, I … Continue reading Late Summer Needlepoint

Obsessions: July 3rd

Instagram obsession: @meghandono Meghan has become one of my favourite bloggers/influencers. I started following her for her sunscreen recs and her Francophile style. She had skin cancer a couple years ago (so I believe that would have put her in her early 30s, and I am rapidly approaching my late 20s) and has become super … Continue reading Obsessions: July 3rd

Mid-Week Procrastination

This has been a very heavy week at work, I work with many Indigenous people and serve Indigenous communities and the news of the mass grave in Kamloops has hit them all very hard particularly and has hit the entire country very hard. We ended up scraping (appropriately and mostly my idea) my big project … Continue reading Mid-Week Procrastination
