Just to prove (ha! See what I did there?! What do you mean “No”?) that I’m not a one-trick crafting-pony.

Oh, and the cross stitch bookmark is finished but I forgot to take a photograph of it before I wrapped it, so you’ll just have to wait until after Wednesday to see it!

Well, it’s all up/down* hill from here! I’m really looking forward to/dreading* the next 6 months as we head towards the equinox!

I had a moment of mild panic last night when I couldn’t remember how to do French Knots.

First World Problem of the highest order!
