growing up with a homemaker mom and a nature-loving dad has made me an aficionado of all things domestic and homemade. since i spend many blissed out hours stirring and stitching, i thought i’d pull together this blog in an attempt to modestly share some of my creations. stirandstitch will include my favourite kitchen-works (predominantly, but not exclusively, based on butter and/or chocolate), as well as some most excellent handmade accessories (crocheting and sewing being my usual obsessions).
while i could happily spend my days creating, dog-cuddling and tea-brewing, punctuated with daily runs and weekly crosswords, reality has me making a living as a nurse. i keep a cozy home in the wild woods of ontario with my tall, dark and handsome husband (TDHH) and our two big and sunny dogs.
feel free to say hello or leave a comment, and for goodness’ sake, PLEASE correct any punctuation or spelling mistakes (for which i will be eternally grateful)*. enjoy!
*yes, i deliberately write in lowercase, not to be dismissive or lazy, but because i find it softer and easier to read.
