About a month ago I decided to restart On Travel with Jane Austen (The Sampler Girl). I spent a little more time working on this last night. It’s going slowly, I find that I stitch very slow when I’m using 40ct linen. I do like the smaller size very much. Slow and steady has been my theme the past few days. My asthma is awful and I have to just take things very slowly, and when I’m feeling really anxious because I feel like I can’t get air and would like to panic – putting a few slow stitches in my project really does help me calm down a little.
I’m still shipping orders and these pretties are headed out the door. Not sure if I can pick a favorite of the bunch. You can find these here.
I’ve been asked about peppermint hot cocoa. Here’s how I like to make it. I heat milk in the microwave and add Nesquick chocolate powders. Then I take a clean spoon and pour a tiny bit of peppermint extract on the spoon – and then pour the extract back into the bottle. There will be enough left on the spoon – even if you can’t see it, to nicely flavor your cocoa.
