Aunt Kelley got her second vaccine shot yesterday. My arm is more sore than last time but am fine other than that. I continue to struggle making a rug. I guess it’s rug hooking but with that loop yarn from Bernat. I needed to get more skeins, but the news ones are bright red not crimson. Placed a new order. Also, May 22 is World Goth Day, and I wanted to do a roundup of cross-stitch patterns for Death’s-head hawkmoth but I ran out of time this week. Maybe next Monday. Happy stitching!

New magazine issues have been released recently including Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher
