Every week I share five highlights, both as a recap and a reminder to stay grateful for the little things. 1 – Wiggle Worm. Amelia is grasping, lunging, rolling, kicking, tasting, gurgling, reaching, cooing, etc. all day every day. She keeps me on my toes! 2 – Tea Time. I had to stop by… Continue reading High Five for Friday!
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 2
Another weekly update on my current Works in Progress 🙂 Impossible Cross Stitch I haven’t worked on this one since 2015! I can’t remember why I put it down, but I do remember having trouble with the needle, so I switched it out for a fresh one and it’s going smoothly so far. The Frosted Pumpkins… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
I love sharing finishes, and today is one of my favorites! I’ve had the Drinks All Around pattern for a few years (retired from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery), and had it all kitted up and ready to go for over a year before I finally tackled it. It wasn’t particularly large or difficult, so I don’t… Continue reading Drinks All Around Cross Stitch
Another Monday morning book review for you! One of my goals this year is to review more books, especially through the Blogging for Books platform. This is review #4 so far, which is the total number of books I reviewed for BfB in 2016, so the bar is set high 🙂 Next up… Harvest: Unexpected… Continue reading Book Chat: Harvest
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 – The First Day of Spring. I couldn’t resist bringing a picnic blanket out to the backyard when the sun came out in full force on… Continue reading High Five for Friday!
We did more than visit the art museum while we were in Alabama last week! Here’s a photo recap of all the little moments that make a visit with family such an enjoyable break in the routine. You’ll notice most of the photos feature Amelia eating something, since that’s the latest fad around here! Trying… Continue reading Alabama Adventures
Another weekly update on my current Works in Progress 🙂 Drinks All Around Cross Stitch It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve picked up this cross stitch, even though it’s only been a couple weeks. After being out of town for a week, I couldn’t resist picking it up as soon as baby was… Continue reading WIP Wednesday
I spent last week visiting my parents in Auburn with Amelia, and the break in routine was much appreciated. My brother came over from Atlanta for a couple days, and it was great to have some quality time with him too. It’s so much fun watching him be an uncle! We visited the Jule Collins Smith… Continue reading Auburn City Sights: Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art
After the last few weeks of visiting with family, I’m feeling a bit sad to be all by my lonesome again. Of course, I’m never alone since Amelia is here with me, but even she is bored more easily when it’s just the two of us. She wants to know what happened to her fan… Continue reading Blogging for Books Review: The Underground Culinary Tour
