Riley Blake Designs - Modern Farmhouse


I don't know about you, but I am so excited for spring! I'm still trying to recover from our whole family getting sick with the flu and strep and the weather has been teasing me this last little bit. The flowers are started to bud here and the grass is getting greener. Riley Blake Designs newest line, Modern Farmhouse has all the gorgeous spring hues! I had to make another quilt out of this because all the prints are just amazing!

Riley Blake Designs - Deep Blue Sea


This is my first blog post of 2020! Already it feels like time is slipping from me far too quickly. The year started with strep throat, so not really the way I was hoping, but definitely with quite the bang! We're all back on our feet again and getting back into the swing of school. I love having my kids home with me, so it was a struggle sending them back, but I can't deny that I'm also tickled pink to have more sewing time!

2019 Recap


I'm always surprised at how quickly each year goes by. I'm also really surprised at how much I blogged this year. I didn't feel like I blogged a lot, but then going through all the pictures, I certainly did make a lot more than I thought!

Michael Miller - Glam Stardust Cosmetic Zip Pouches


My daughters are all at the age that they are getting into make-up and my oldest daughter has started getting Ipsy Bags. She loves the little bags that come with it each month, but they aren't quite big enough to hold much, so she requested some more in custom sizes. I knew Michael Millers Hi-Density Metallic Stardust line would be perfect for make up bags!

Today I'm talking all about Christopher Thompson and his newest line Winifred Rose for Riley Blake Designs. If you don't know who Chris is, you need to check him out! I've gotten to meet him a couple of times and he is such a sweet and amazing guy! He has some of the most adorable designs and seeing pics of his sweet bulldogs always makes me smile!

25 of my Favorite Gifts to Make Using Cricut


Christmas is looming ever closer and I am so ready! I mean, I'm really not....I don't even have our tree up, but I am so ready for school break and the coziness of everyone being home with lots of hot cocoa and mini marshmallows, a good movie to watch, and no where we need to go!
Although I do have the majority of presents bought (not wrapped, lol) I do have a few I have to finish up for teachers, neighbors, and white elephant gifts. So if you're like me and still needing some idea's for those last minute gifts, here's 25 (plus a few) of my favorite DIY gifts you can make easily using the Cricut Machine! First project is my Christmas Pajamas. My girls still wear these shirts!

Easy Knit Jersey Block Throw Quilt

My kids love snuggling up in little throw blankets and quilts and with Christmas just around the corner, I figured this would be a perfect little gift for each of the kids to go along with their Christmas Pj's! Especially when I can use my knit scraps to make it too!

Riley Blake Designs - Dream World


Guys! I literally think this is my FAVORITE quilt EVER! This line is just stunning and I wanted to make sure to do it justice! The line is called Dream World and is by the insanely creative and talented Emily Winfield Martin for Riley Blake Designs. It is just so magical and fun. I'm really wanting to buy the art prints that go along with this line to hang up!

Michael Miller Fabrics - Living in the Wild Log Cabin Mini Quilt


Thanksgiving is quite literally just around the corner! This time of year we always try to reflect on what we're most grateful for and one thing I am very thankful for is when we were able to get into a program to build our house and become home owners. It was life changing for us, and although it definitely held many challenges, I will always be so grateful that we were able to get in. We moved from that home a couple years ago and my family has so many good memories of it! Because of that, I decided to make a Log Cabin mini quilt pattern featuring Michael Millers, Living in the Wild, line!

Riley Blake Designs - Pemberley


I have been totally crushing on all of Citrus and Mint Designs lines for Riley Blake. Her newest line is no exception! Pemberley is so sweet and has the most gorgeous hues of green and blue and pink.
The print my girls were most excited about was the Violins.
