Beginning Project Life

Beginning Project Life

First, let me apologize for the iphone pictures. When you want to take pictures of plastic covered pictures at night, it’s tough to get something decent without the flash. You can enlarge all of the pictures but the quality isn’t fantastic. Now, let me back up and explain. In December Kathleen tweeted about her Project Life process; when I clicked over I immediately fell down a rabbit hole. I had never heard of Project Life before, […]

Recent Food and Craft Projects – #PinitDoit

As such, I thought I’d also give a little progress update on what I’ve been up to Pinterest-wise. I started off really strongly the last couple of weeks in November and then I went to bed one night and woke up and […]

ReExerSewing

Today is November 20th. I have no idea what happened to the other 19 days in this month. And really, part of me wants to cry when I think about only having 10 days left in November and then 31 days in December and then it will be 2013. Except I’ve already been drafting my 2013 Things in my head and I am looking forward to that! But back to November…where the heck did you […]

I’m Hexed. Or A New Sewing Project

I’m Hexed. Or A New Sewing Project

Because Lisa loves me (and she REALLY wants me to make a hex quilt with her), she drafted up a wonderful tutorial for paper piecing hexes. Then we started a chat on twitter and people said they wanted to join! (#hexchat). Then Lisa made a Flickr group. And now we officially have a hexalong. :) Now, the thing I love about these hexes is that I can sit there and make them while I watch […]

Pin It and Do It: Pinterest Challenge October Link Up

Pin It and Do It: Pinterest Challenge October Link Up

October always marks the start of fall for me. I know that technically it started about a week ago, but October seem quintessentially fall doesn’t it? The leaves, the pumpkins, the crisp cool weather. Long sleeves and sweaters. Well, at least this Texan can dream of those things… And since it’s October, that also means that the third round of Pin it and Do it starts TODAY! I hope you’ve picked out some fun projects […]
