October Already!?

It seems as though this year is going by so quickly! It’s already October. I am not sure if that’s because I am so busy, especially the last 6 weeks being back in school or if we have just had a lot going on.
So of course this is time for me to take on another project…… I started cross stitching. Well I don’t know if I can call myself a cross stitcher quite yet, I barely have done anything.
My friend, who I made the patchwork quilt for, gave me a xstitch kit for my birthday and I had her help me start it yesterday. She has done some pretty amazing things with xstitch, for example she did the entire Klimt painting The Kiss in xstitch, I need to post a picture, it’s so intricate and lovely.

My goal is to get to the point where I could do that. I have already been drooling over some of the art patterns, Monet, Vermeer, and Van Gogh in particular.
I might attempt a fancy bookmark for my sister for her Christmas stocking.

The rest of the month of October, I will be working on a few knitting projects, school of course, xstitch, and hopefully some healthy & delicious gluten free recipes. Another thing for October is making time to exercise! I took the summer off and have been a little lazy with it, so I decided October is the time to get back into it. With holiday goodies approaching and us planning a beach vacation in February I have no excuse not to.


  1. I always add a project when I am already overwhelmed with stuff. I think it is my tool for calming my self.
