Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

On apple muffins, cross stitching, and chain saw killers…

What do you do when you finally fall asleep at 4AM only to have your darling wake you up at 4:45 with his snoring? You get out of bed and make apple muffins.

The crumbly bits on top were a little dry and weird, but the muffin part was thumbs up. But then again, anything sugary and warm probably tastes good when you are operating on little sleep.

On a brighter note, I’m enjoying this stitch-a-long.

I got most of the red done for Days 1 and 2 and now need to add the green. These are some greens that are in my stash but they aren’t quite right. I can’t decide between bright & modern or traditional & dark. Thoughts?

And a few more photos from the weekend…

We had our Halloween block party.

My favorite part was the horse drawn wagon rides.

I was planning to enter the pie baking contest, but forgot to bake a pie. How do you forget to bake a pie? Then Tom volunteered to be a pie judge and they picked someone else. We really failed at the pie competition this year.

Coal was popular in his sweater.

You know you’re a boy mom when walking in on this doesn’t even phase you. He was trying to show me that his socks have skulls on them too. A+ for follow through on a theme.

Happy Tuesday!


YAY! Cross stitching!


The pumpkin that got away


  1. The muffins look really yummy. I wish I could get out of bed when I can’t sleep and make something yummy like that. I don’t think it could ever happen, but there is always hope 😉 I like the darker green for your stitchy project, but the lighter green would also work. Cool costume! It is great when you coordinate 🙂

  2. Lol. I just get more aggravated if I lay there listening to the snoring, so sometimes it’s just better to get up.

    I went to the LNS today and got some light AND dark green, so maybe it will be a combo!

  3. I will have to learn to drag myself out of bed when I am laying there awake. Make productive use of my time instead of getting frustrated laying there awake. Oooo I think a combo of light and dark greens on your ornaments will be wonderful 🙂

  4. Haha!!! Our sons could be twins….. My vote is for the dark green – I like traditional and boring 🙂

  5. The muffins look delicious! If my boyfriend wakes me up snoring I prod him until he stops.

    I like dark green best – it seems more fitting with that shade of red somehow.

  6. Oh trust me… I do plenty of prodding, kicking, complaining too. 🙂
    I think I like the dark green too…

  7. I am pretty traditional and boring too! I like the dark green better too, but I did buy some additional light green. Maybe use both? CRAZY! 😉

I love to hear from you!
