Welcome to episode thirty-seven of "Stitching Between Pages"! I hope you enjoy watching! It's been quite some time since I last filmed, but hopefully I'll be back a little bit more regularly now (even if not every other week).

Other Miscellaneous Mentions:
1. I'm watching Call The Midwife (a BBC show; there's five seasons available on Netflix), which is set in the East End of London in the 1950s and follows the career of a young midwife, her three coworkers, and the nuns of Nonnatus House where they live (who are also nurses and midwives). I also recently watched Netflix' new show, The Crown, which is about Queen Elizabeth II. I highly recommend both shows!
2. I saw Hamilton (in Chicago). Y'all. It was AMAZING. The music is, of course, incredible, and the choreography, staging, and dancing were so good. If you are wondering whether or not it's worth seeing the musical live after listening non-stop to the original cast recording -- YES. Yes, it is.
3. The song that my embroidery is from is "All Will Be Well" by the Gabe Dixon Band.
