Chapter One: I am born

The lyf so short, the craft so longe to lerne.
Th’ assay so hard, so sharp the conquerynge,
The dredful joye, alwey that slit so yerne;
Al this mene I be love.

–Geoffrey Chaucer, Parlement of Fowles, l. 1-4

With this blog, I want to share some of my passions, specifically knitting and needlework (especially cross stitch), with occasional forays into other crafts like quilting or paper crafts. I hope you enjoy reading this blog at least as much as I’ve enjoyed creating the projects that inspire it. Please check out my About page for more detailed information about the background and goals of this blog. Thanks for reading!
