March Cross Stitch Update

Story Time Sampler

I can’t believe that March is over! Fastest month ever. I got some decent stitching finished this month. I finished two pieces for separate swaps and got a little more work done on the Story Time Sampler. Scott and I were joking about the fact that I love starting new patterns and have to pull […]

Kiwi Curried Egg Salad

Kiwi Curried Egg Salad

I looooove egg salad season. For those who don’t know, it starts at Easter and ends when it gets cold out again. When we lived in New Zealand, egg salad season was year-round. I enjoyed an egg salad sandwich every time we stopped into a tea rooms. Kiwi (as in New Zealand) Curried Egg Salad […]
