Project Pinterest: Quilted Table Toppers

I can spend hours pinning, but not so much doing!  Maybe you can relate?  I Love You More than Carrots is hosting a new weekly link-up called Project Pinterest. Bake, make, or decorate… but most importantly, do!  I really like this idea for some motivation, so I’ll try to follow along: choose one pin per… Continue reading Project Pinterest: Quilted Table Toppers

The Lost Reading Logs: January-May 2009

I’ve been keeping a Reading Log since late 2008.  And when I started trying to organize all those Reading Logs in the blog archives, I realized I was pretty inconsistent about sharing them.  There are entire months unpublished, although (I promise!) I was still keeping track of what I was reading. So now, mostly for… Continue reading The Lost Reading Logs: January-May 2009

What I Wore Wednesday! My motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time!  My goal is to keep a fashion diary for an entire year, and post each week’s outfits along the way 🙂 Blue print t-shirt dress… Continue reading WIWW: September 16-22, 2012

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas… Just Kidding

I’m a big fan of Alicia Paulsen over at Posie Gets Cozy.  Every year she creates kits for a new set of hand-crafted ornaments, and every year I covet them but hesitate just a day too long before they’re sold out.  This year I snagged my very favorite of her ornament collections, the 2010 edition… Continue reading It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas… Just Kidding

The Verbs of Quilting

The verbs of quilting: Brainstorming, researching, gathering, choosing, measuring, cutting, chain piecing, creating a block, arranging multiple blocks, connecting blocks into rows, connecting rows into one big piece, pressing, sandwiching, basting, quilting, binding. Completing a quilt is a long process of many itty bitty steps and I’ve come to relish every step of the journey,… Continue reading The Verbs of Quilting

Meow Monday: It’s (Almost) Fall, Y’all!

Labor Day has come and gone—the unofficial beginning of Fall—and the official start is coming up this Friday.   It’s hard to get excited about Fall around here—the weather is pretty Fall-like all year round, and it’s actually going to get warmer in the coming months before it cools down again.  I brought out a… Continue reading Meow Monday: It’s (Almost) Fall, Y’all!
