I purchased some adorable patterns from A Little Sweetness on Etsy. I saw in the listing of the pattern I purchased that the designer Tasha, had made hers into a mini quilt. I decided it would be fun to do the same. Now I have to say, this was my first attempt at embroidery. My stitches are a little off, at first I used way to many strands of floss and could barely get them in and out of the fabric. Then I realized, oh you only use 3 instead of 6, much easier! So I did cut out stitches and restitched a few pieces but all in all I think it turned out quit well.. so far.

I am very new to this, but I am so excited to learn more and do more embroidery projects :)

Tasha’s designs are adorable, you can purchase them in her etsy store (link is above).

Happy Wednesday!

Happy New Year to you all!! Hope your year is off to a good start!

I have been busy sewing and getting the Etsy store updated.. so we have been productive which is good. We started this new year with another cycle of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) so hopefully this round will work and we will have a baby on the way soon. With these meds, oh goodness they make you have crazy cravings. Tonight was no different. So browsing through pinterest I found this recipe from The Cottage Market and OH MY GOSH, so good!

I used my new cast iron skillet that I was so pleased to get for Christmas, heated up some organic coconut oil and went to frying.

Delicious!! And they definitely hit the spot!

Whenever I am in studio or somewhere in the house working on a project, I always find a movie (usually one I have seen 100 times) a cup of coffee (or good earth green tea) and I get to work. It’s my process. This week I finished up a cabinet for the dining room. I took the two ends from our old entertainment center, painted them and attched them together as one piece… It worked beautifully.

Happy Decemeber!

Had to run some errands this morning and the hubby and I ended up taking a small detour out of town to one of our favorite antique stores. We found some candles sticks for our table, vintage patterns and a tablecloth I am going to make a quilt out of. Good finds today! We also picked up some pine branches to go with the candlesticks for a nice touch. Now to do some baking for tomorrow! Hope you all have a very enjoyable Thanksgiving!
