i paint my dream

Well, not so much. I’m not really a painter. I did some murals in my bedroom as a teenager (with my mother’s permission!), but I quit painting ages ago. One thing that always stuck with me was needlework. My grandma taught me to crochet when I was 9. When she felt like I could handle a smaller, pointed needle, I took up cross stitch. Now, that I’m in my early 30s, I get to sit around like a little old lady making scarves, blankets, and quilts.

Pinterest makes us all feel like anything is possible, and I am not immune to its charms. Here I will share with you my triumphs, and my failures. Either we’ll get it right, or we’ll have a good laugh. It should be pretty entertaining either way!
