I think we can all agree that we will miss Google Reader. I haven’t decided what I want to switch to – Feedly or Bloglovin’ are the top contenders. I’m not super happy with either app on my iPhone. I guess the big thing is that it’s hard to make change!
Anywho, just in [...]
I finally have my first finish of 2013! I signed up in December for round #13 of the Doll Quilt Swap, thinking I would have a ton of time over Christmas break (I took off 2 weeks) to crank something out. I had a plan in place by then…but no one told this naive [...]
I’ve now achieved an important crafty mom milestone: my first round of teacher gifts.
What does one make when slightly pressed for time (aka, the night before rhe holiday party at daycare) but yet wants to slightly personalize the gift?
Answer: mug rugs (or snack mat, if you prefer).

I’ve started a new project, one with a looming deadline. Needless to say, my rotary cutter got quite the workout today (baby has a cold, which means lots of naps).
If anyone has 2.5″ purple squares, I’d be interested in trading some other squares in exchange… I’m also trolling for 1.5″ pink and [...]

I now know where the glitter is at Joann. *big grin*
Sewing stretchy fabric isn’t so bad when one uses the proper needle (ball point). I made my first pair of DIY baby legs from a funky pair of knee socks from Target. We are taking our first plane ride with the baby on Friday, and I thought the leggings would facilitate diaper changes while [...]
Thank goodness for the Fat Quarter Shop’s Coming Soon Page – I troll it every once in a while so I know what I don’t want to miss! And Riley Blake isn’t a manufacturer I normally gravitate toward…but I think I will for this collection!
How often does your kiddo have a fabric [...]
I feel like I’ve been on a bit of a Tula Pink bender lately – fabric and pattern. So I think these are my last Tula projects for a bit – but she is a tempting mistress, so I know I’ll be back (besides, I still have a Neptune quilt top to finish up, [...]
I’ve been playing with fabric, but didn’t sew it. I decided the nursery needed a little pizazz, so I cut some fabric circles (using plates and my circle cutter for the various sizes), dipped the pieces in undiluted starch and slapped them on the wall. Viola! Instant, easy wall decor! Based on what I’ve [...]
