    Did you think embroidery was complicated, confined to flowers and a major undertaking? This cute and clever book will dispel those myths and inspire you to take up a needle and thread even if it's for the first time ever.
     
    Fiona Goble an established craft author and owner of a textile business. The inspiration for this book came from her blog stitchaday, for which she set herself the task of producing a simple embroidery for every day of the year.
     
    The book showcases 35 simple embroidery motifs that can be stitched onto any number of textile objects. Each colourful, striking motif is shown on a specific object for inspiration, whether a towel, skirt, bag, gift card or lampshade. The projects are split into fun chapters, themed according to their uses: Eat, Sleep, Relax, Work, Play, Dress, Bath, Celebrate. and the instructions are as clear and simple as the motifs themselves.
     
    The items are often embellished with buttons and contrasting fabric trims and for each motif there is also a 'Stitch it!' star with suggestions for further uses of the motif, all of which gives the reader a wealth of inspiration for any project they wish to take on board.
     
    With an introduction to all the different stitches used in the book and a few bonus patterns should you wish to make your own pillowcase, apron or doorstop, this is a gorgeous book that will help you brighten your home or the faces of friends and family.

    My Kid Is an Asshole, and So Is My Dog 
    -- a comedic look at the drama of raising a teenage girl 
    I just returned from the mall after school shopping with my soon-to-be sophomore and her friend. I now understand why fathers opt to go camping, roll around in elk urine, and shit in a hole rather than go to the mall three days before school starts. As if the crowds weren't bad enough, my girl decided to wear a flannel that hung lower than her shorts, making it appear that she was walking around naked from the waist down.  
    She was flocked by sales people, who, I am sure, were calculating their commissions in their heads.  I mean, why not? Everybody wants to help the girl who arrives pant-less.  Obviously, she needs clothes. 
    We're not home half an hour and the vodka I poured for myself is only half gone when she yells down from her room, "Mom, have you seen my push up bra? Maybe we need to go back to the mall." 
    It's the moments like these where I'm convinced raising a teen is bullshit, and I wonder if we'll ever come out on the other side even speaking to one another. Pass the vodka. 
    There aren't enough warnings in the world for raising teenage girls. Although my mom swears my daughter takes after me, so it's karma. 
    Is it karma that I've got two barking dogs? It must be. Have you ever heard a shiu-tzu bark?  I have.  Over and over.  They think they're coyotes.  I swear.  And right now, they're wrestling over some stuffed animal, which is surely about to fling open, so I can pick up little beads all over the carpet while drinking my vodka.  No wait.  They stopped.  One of them had to drag its ass across the floor. Epic. 
    It's in the little moments where I earn my parenting badges—the faded stretch marks. 
    Ruff, ruff! 
    If this is my karma for being such an asshole to my mom, maybe we can get through this too. And if she pays attention in English, instead of scouting for a prom date, she can learn to write her own book—the sequel to this: My Mom Is an Asshole, but Not My Dog.
