Another High Five for Friday! I’m sharing the highlights of my week… five to be exact! I love the idea of focusing on five little things that made me happy… definitely a fun way to recap the week and stay grateful. 1 – Finish! I loved participating in my first-ever swap and the beautiful result!… Continue reading High Five for Friday!
So excited to share a finish today… it’s been a while! It all started in April when I made 24 Low Volume Plus blocks for the swap hosted by Lindsay Sews. It was the first swap I’ve ever participated in… big thanks to Lindsay for hosting and organizing everything! When I sent my blocks off,… Continue reading Low Volume Plus Swap Quilt
I’m working on another yearlong cross stitch project (see last year’s Once Upon a Time sampler here) but this one is a bit more laid back since it’s an older pattern and I don’t have to wait for the mystery blocks to be revealed each month. I love Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery‘s Woodland Creatures sampler, it… Continue reading Woodland Creatures Cross Stitch: July
Window shopping is one of my favorite hobbies, and the deadly heat this weekend was a perfect excuse to check out some new (to us) shops in Nashville… plenty of a/c was appreciated, and spending was off the table (except for food!). Most of our weekend adventures tend to last from 10-2 – we leave… Continue reading Nashville City Sights: Window Shopping
Every so often I catch the cats being besties… and lately, it’s been happening as the sun goes down and they catch the last few rays together on the window ledge. I’m pretty sure the heater Tali is laying on is the only thing keeping Cora from falling off, ha! P.S. Sneaky… Continue reading Meow Monday: BFF+E
Another High Five for Friday! It’s not like this was a bad week… but it was busy and slipped by quickly, and come Thursday night I had a hard time coming up with any pics. So I’m leaning heavily on what I’ve been watching/listening/reading lately, hope you don’t mind! 1 – Shop Hop. The monthly… Continue reading High Five for Friday!
I mentioned this super easy tip last week, and I wanted to do a quick post so I don’t forget about it (plus, the image is pretty generic for Pinterest… oh, the horror!) Cold Brew Iced Tea I picked this tip up from The Splendid Table… talk about a eureka moment! All you have to… Continue reading Super Quick Frugal Tip: Cold Brew Iced Tea
Another weekly update on my current WIP… only one this week! All that shopping wore me out, so I haven’t had time for much crafting. But I worked a bit on the Impossible cross stitch, so here’s an update: It Always Seems Impossible Until is is Done … And that’s about it! Linking… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
I’ve been on a fabric fast for the past few months in preparation for the Music City MQG Shop Hop this past weekend… it was so worth it! We visited 5 quilt shops in the area which ran special discounts for our group and had an absolute blast shopping all day long, from Franklin to… Continue reading Nashville City Sights: Quilt Shop Hop
Cora loves it when I go shopping… because then she gets to climb inside the bags and shred the tissue paper until I ruin the fun by cleaning up. This weekend was an EPIC shopping event… I’ve been on a fabric fast for months in preparation for the Music City MQG shop hop… Continue reading Meow Monday: Let the Cat out of the Bag
