About

Hello fellow crafters!

My name is Dianne, and I’m so happy you found me.  I started blogging in 2006 when I found myself very temporarily at home, in between jobs, and completely OBSESSED with cross-stitching.  Over the last several years I have enjoyed stitching, sewing, quilting, and knitting…but the one constant has been my love for sharing with all of you what I’m working on. Podcasting is my newest venture, and I’m loving it so far!  I currently am a full time yarn dyer, bag maker, & creative guru for Suburban Stitcher.  I never could have dreamed or imagined in 2006 that starting that blog would one day become my career, but here we are and I’m so glad you are along for the ride.

On a personal note 🙂 I am married to an AMAZING man (Mr. Stitcher!), have two boys & one lazy dog.  I love the beach, clean bright rooms, and all things pink and purple.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2014, and since then I’ve eaten a strict gluten-free diet.  I’m addicted to hot tea, and I LOVE using essential oils.  I often talk about my journeys with diet and health on Instagram and my podcast, and of course, will always answer questions as they come up.
