SAL – Project Fraktur Hex #1

This is my first post on my newest project, Modern Folk Embroidery’s Fraktur Hex. The original design photo showed the entire project stitched in blue. I knew I would get bored only stitching the same color so I have switched up the color scheme. Just the single outside border was 1072 stitches! It’s a veryContinue reading “SAL – Project Fraktur Hex #1”

SAL – Autumn House #1

I am sorry for such a late update. I didn’t forget. I had to work a full day today and then had to get 7 pints of pickled beets canned. Lots to do to catch up since we got back from our trip to Ireland on Thursday night. I decided that I needed a bitContinue reading “SAL – Autumn House #1”

One Hundred Dollars a Month

I am your typical housewife living in high maintenance suburbia. I have a handsome husband, 2 kids and a flock of pet chickens. I try and feed my family with $100 a month. With the help of coupons, gardening and bartering I am able to squeeze the most out of our grocery budget and still manage to have a little fun along the way.
