Maternity clothing is a huge industry and almost everyone has to buy a few new things to make it through nine months of rapid body changes. I bought a couple ruched tops, struggled with those annoying built-in panels on pants, and lived in a few stretchy dresses for the last couple months. (If you want… Continue reading Momiform
It’s easy to lose track of a digital collection of books, so from time to time I like to scroll through my overflowing Kindle app and make a list of unread titles to keep me on track. I’m a sucker for a good deal, which leads to a mile-long backlog on my TBR list. Bookbub is… Continue reading TBR List
Happy Friday! Once again, High Five for Friday features five highlights of the week, my way of focusing on the little things that remind me to stay grateful. 1 – New car! We traded in our 2014 Honda Accord and drove away in almost exactly the same car… same color, same model… but brand… Continue reading High Five for Friday!
I haven’t done a City Sights post in quite a while, mostly because… I don’t go anywhere anymore! A baby changes that for sure. I’m not going to Quiltcon this year, even though it’s the closest it’s ever been to me geographically (Savannah, GA), but I’m living vicariously through social media as all my quilt… Continue reading TBT: Tennessee City Sights
Another weekly update on my current Works in Progress 🙂 Drinks All Around Cross Stitch I finished the sweet tea, now on to the mojito! Lemonade will round out the trio. This has been such a fun stitch during naptime. I love these little kawaii drinks so much! Here’s a little peek… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
President’s Day is one of those holidays that you never know if your current job will give the day off or not, so we never count on it, and each year we usually only bother to find out the Friday before. This year, Amelia decided not to give me the day off… but hubby’s boss… Continue reading Long Weekend Firsts
I’ve never participated in a round robin quilt before, but the idea is fun: start with a square or strip for the center, then pass it around a group of quilters, each adding to it (borders or blocks or whatever they want), and passing it on to the next person each month, until it makes… Continue reading Round Robin Quilt: Round 1
Happy Friday! Every Friday I share five highlights of my week – both as a recap and a reminder to stay grateful. 1 – Valentines. Our low-key V Day involved pizza, Jeni’s ice cream, and lots of Amelia kisses this year. I love my funny valentines! 2 – Digital Frame. Technically a Christmas present, this… Continue reading High Five for Friday!
A tiny finish today: The Bee Keeper is done! I’m trying to work through some of the patterns I’ve accumulated and this little one seemed like a great start. It’s pretty small at 2.7″ x 2.5″ and a fun stitch! I don’t have any finishing plans yet, so it goes into the (growing) pile of… Continue reading The Bee Keeper Cross Stitch
Another weekly update on my current Works in Progress 🙂 Drinks All Around Cross Stitch A new start! This is a retired pattern from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery that I’ve been sitting on for a while. All the floss and fabric was already kitted, so I finally got started. The kawaii drinks are too cute! Iced… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
