Talented Tuesday Link Party #35

I feel like I’m on about week four of a crazy busy streak usually reserved for spring or winter.  What happened to the lazy days of summer?  From the looks of the projects linked up here last week, I’m not the only one.  What do you have going on this week? Dutch Oven Mac and…

My Sewing Room is Finished!

Oh boy, do I have something to show to you today. When my husband and I were newlyweds, I didn’t have many craft or sewing supplies.  What I did have fit in a box, and that was stuffed in a closet somewhere.  Sometime after we bought our first house, I progressed to a stack of…

Friday Favorites–Jean Therapy

Do you remember a time when denim wasn’t in everyone’s closet?  Since their rise to popularity in the 50’s, the styles and colors of jeans, jackets and skirts have varied, but they never disappear.  I’m personally trying to work a few non-denim items into my wardrobe to break up my daily jeans routine, but I’ve…

Piecing a Tablecloth

How did my remodeled bedroom lead to a new tablecloth for my dining room?  Well, let me tell you. I mentioned last week that one of my contributions to the room was a rather spectacular curtain fail.  I should have taken some photos before I ripped took them down, but I was a little distraught. …

Our bedroom went from sad to fab - see how we did it!

My Huge Bedroom Remodel

My house is old.  I probably shouldn’t say that, because it’s actually a couple of years younger than I am, but I’m not still wearing stuff from the 70’s.  We bought it because it has a phenomenal view and good bones.  It’s been a lot of work, mostly for my industrious husband, but we’ve brought…

Quilt-As-You-Go Table Runner

Spending most of my days sewing, I tend to have a lot of fabric scraps.  I have a box of them that will eventually be cut into 2” squares and made into some sort of amazing quilt.  If they’d just take care of that square thing on their own it would go a lot faster,…

Friday Favorites – Winter

I don’t think winter gets its due.  It gets all lumped in with Christmas, when really it’s only just getting started by the time the holidays are over.  If we’re going to get freezing weather where I live it’s much more likely to happen in January than before.  Dashing through the snow doesn’t involve reindeer…
