Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

Wandering + Wondering

Hi Blog!

It was a busy weekend for little old me.

Tom and I went out for a lovely dinner date on Friday. A new restaurant opened near our house and it is delish. I had the duck. I love duck, but never prepare it at home because it seems like a lot of work. When it’s on a menu, I go for it!

On Saturday, Stephanie and I ventured into the city for a weaving workshop held at the studio of a former classmate of mine.

We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but it was so fun and inspiring! It was not so much about the technical art of weaving but rather about the intuitive and meditative art of weaving. It was so against my usual regimented perfectionistic (hello… cross stitch!) tendencies that it was quite freeing and enjoyable. I think this might become a new hobby because, you know, I need another one.

Sunday was sloooow but productive at the same time. I woke up at 6 and was the first customer at Target at 8am sharp. What is better than having an entire Target practically to yourself? It was like some sort of dream sequence.

But the day wasn’t all dreamy wandering around Target, I went grocery shopping, cooked a ton in preparation for the week ahead, cleaned (Pinterest test of vinegar + Dawn dish soap to clean a shower. It worked!), played piano, read Wonder to the boys (Oh! That book! Have any of you read that book?! My heart hurts! I need to talk about it with someone!),

And squeezed in between two boys on the couch to do a little stitching. No pics, I was too tired by then to get up and find my phone.

All in all, a good weekend. What’s new with you?




Tuesday Thoughts


  1. Sounds like a pretty productive week to me. Not much new here. I would love to hear about the Vinegar and Dawn recipe for cleaning the shower 🙂

  2. The recipe is so simple. 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1/2 cup of Dawn dishwashing soap. The internet says that it HAS to be Dawn.
    Heat the vinegar in the microwave to very hot, then mix with the Dawn in a squirt bottle. It gets kind of thick and sludgy. Spray in shower and let it sit. I let it sit while I was doing other chores for an hour maybe then sprayed it down with my hand held sprayer. No scrubbing and it left everything shiny and clean! The smell of vinegar was a little strong, but it went away quickly.

  3. I am writing it down and will have to try it 🙂
    Thank you!

I love to hear from you!
