Friday Favorites–Penguins

What do penguins have to do with mid-September?  Well, let me tell you.  My daughter’s birthday is this coming Monday and she asked me to post a Friday Favorites collection for her with a penguin theme in honor of it.  When your 20-something child actually READS your blog and cares what you post, you don’t…

Sprout Patterns Lined Zipper Bag

I just want to be clear, I have no affiliation with Sprout Patterns or Spoonflower, I just think this is a fun product! For months (almost a year if I’m being honest – I looked up my receipt) I’ve had this little bit of fabric hanging on one of the bulletin boards behind my cutting…

Hot Pad of the Month–June Star and Stripes

I couldn’t leave on my vacation without sharing this June’s Hot Pad of the Month! There’s only one more hot pad after this one before this series comes to an end, which makes this number seventeen. There are so many reasons, old and new, that I’m glad I went with this design but I won’t…
