Link Love: A Big Week Done and Dusted

Can I confess something? I'm shattered. Like bone tired, shattered. The Little Man did his first full week at school, I drove 6 hours to teach and all day class with the fabulous Mandy at Fabric Sauce. In between all of that I've been working like crazy to get the house in order and get on with the big tasks. I'm in need of a good nap (if you can call sleeping for a year a nap). I've been walking ... Read the Post

Link Love: First Day of Forever

Well the day that I've been thinking about for months is finally here.... our little boy starts school today. It's been a weekend of mixed emotions. I'm so excited for him because he seems so excited to be starting school. He's been talking about it since before pre-school finished. He's looking forward to getting back into learning, playing with his friends and seeing what "big boy" school is all ... Read the Post

Link Love: Conquering My Fears + Procrastination

I've had the best week. I've spent time with the boys, I've spent time in the sewing studio and I've spent time learning! I'd seriously forgotten how good it feels to learn. For years now I've been putting off learning Adobe Illustrator. I need illustrator to be able to out together technical diagrams for patterns, books, tutorials and alike. I tried once a couple of years ago and I just got so ... Read the Post

Sponsors News + Deals for January 2018

One of the things that allows me to be able to continue to run events and provide prizes for these events is support from the amazing businesses in the quilting community. In an effort to share more of the amazing deals, bundles, kits, notions, patterns and discount that they offer I'm going to be doing a monthly round-up of some of the great things these sponsors are offering so that you can save ...

Link Love: Misadventures in Minecraft

Deciding to take January "off" has been one of the best decisions I've made in a long time. The difference between the second week of January and this past week are massive. I've gone from being an around the clock jerk to just a sometimes jerk. I've spent more time with the boys and I've even managed to get some work done on tasks that I was giving myself permission to ignore until February. I've ... Read the Post

Sue Daley Round We Go Sew-along Version 3 of Block 5

Welcome to our third Round We Go Friday for 2018! I really love this mix of shapes because there's so much possibility for making secondary shapes with them.

Thistle by Elizabeth Hartman – All the Animals Sew-along

Thistle is the next block we'll be covering in the Fancy Forest pattern as part of the All the Animals Sew-along. I had planned on having my own version of this quilt to share with you but the fabrics I ordered before Christmas went missing in the postal system and now I'm running into my second book deliverables and so I'm not going to be sewing any Elizabeth Hartman blocks until April. It sucks ... Read the Post

Link Love: Traveling in Cars with Boys

A funny thing happened last week... it sucked, but in a good way. But it taught me a lesson, so I can't complain. Actually it probably taught me a few but I'm going to share 2 with you today: 1. Carpooling to save $11 is nuts. We've been looking at ways we can save money around the house (so that we can all go to Houston in November) and I suggested that while the Little Man is on school ...
