Release Day — Last Chance Knit & Stitch

Hope Ramsay
“Every few weeks she would shut herself up in her room, put on her scribbling suit, and fall into a vortex, as she expressed it, writing away at her novel with all her heart and soul, for till that was finished she could find no peace.”  – Louisa May Alcott, from Little Women The first [...]

Hope Ramsay
Macbeth, Act IV, Scene I by William Shakespeare Round about the cauldron go; In the poison’d entrails throw. Toad, that under cold stone Days and nights hast thirty one Swelter’d venom sleeping got, Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot. Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.     Fillet of a [...]

Hope Ramsay
Aunt Annie was my mother’s older, unmarried sister.  And where my mother was easygoing and fun, Aunt Annie was neither of those things.  In fact, she was just a little bit of a curmudgeon.  Okay, I have cousins who absolutely detested her because she could be grumpy and judgmental.

In addition, […]

Check into the Inn at Last Chance

Hope Ramsay
I have three brothers.  They taught me much as I grew up.  How to kick a soccer ball.  How to climb a tree.  How to bait a hook.  How to score a baseball game. They also handed down their books to me.  Books like: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, by Robert Heinlein, and I, […]
