On Trend Valentines Mini Quilt- Free tutorial and pattern

I have a spot on my gallery wall that has just been begging for a mini quilt.  I thought I would change them out seasonally so I started with this one.  Turns out it looks WAY better in my living room, and not the family room like I thought, so there aren’t any pictures of it in the gallery wall, but you still get a free tutorial out of the deal, so I think we’re good. 😉 Plus, now I…

Bloom Sew Along Mini Valentine’s Day Quilt

I have been loving the sewing going on over at the Riley Blake Design’s blog and Lori Holt’s blog as they host a sew along using Lori’s new fabric Calico Days and her Sew Simple Shapes.  I was invited to participate in sewing a block and I decided on week three’s darling flowers. I used fabrics from Doodlebug’s Lovebugs collection and I just love them.  I didn’t want to make just a block, so I decided to turn it into…

Simple Felt Valentine Projects

I’m late to the party as usual.  Friday is Valentine’s Day and I’m just now getting around to posting anything remotely related to the holiday.  I’ve got a couple of projects for you today that are easy enough you could pull them off if you’re like me and just a smidge behind the times.  The first is this simple Valentine banner.  I used hearts cut out from felt and hot glue to make them, then I used twine and sewed…

V is for Valentine

The week of love.  Who can resist?  Certainly not me.Luckily it was my turn to host preschool.  Amazingly, my letter was “V”. (actually, I traded so that I could do the letter “v” the week of Valentine’s Day- It should have been my turn next week. 😉  But, we’ll just go ahead and assume it was fate.)The first day of preschool was “V” is for volcano.  We made a volcano out of playdough and had it erupt with baking soda…

Valentine Service gift for Cub Scouts

This is the basket my son made for me. We made these for Cub Scouts on Valentine’s day this year.  We have a boy with diabetes and another with celiac disease so food based activities were out of the question since we didn’t want to leave someone out.  The hearts were made with fabric scraps and the baskets were made with paper plates.  I had seen the heart idea on a pin somewhere, but I didn’t re-pin it myself so…

Fun with Figurines

 I know I showed these to you already, but sometimes I just love looking at them en masse.  I think it’s so fun to look at all those blocks and know they’re going to great homes. 🙂  My aunt asked me to make her two sets of these blocks.  They are customized for her and got me thinking that perhaps I will branch out into more custom offerings.  I already change out hair color if it’s requested- but I’m thinking…

Love Notes- Week 2

This month the theme for “Theme-day Thursday” is Love notes. I thought I would share some of the notes I’m leaving for the kids in their envelopes from the Love Notes Board. The notes are silly and short- and not complicated at all, but the kids love them. {I know it’s more about the candy then the presentation anyway- so I don’t make it overly difficult} I always write one thing I love about that child each day on the…
