IT’S WEEK 10 OF SHOW AND TELL!  FIND OUT WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH LIFE IN OUR LITTLE HANDMADE HOME ❤️

Well friends, I’m home from my vacation in Florida and let me tell you, it was a lovely time!

I spent 12 days in the sun and “relative” warmth of Orlando.  I say relative because, for us, it was a reprieve from the cold.  But for anyone local, it apparently was quite cold.  I loved it – shorts some days, leggings on others.  It was perfect weather for me!

While enjoying Universal Studios and Walt Disney World, I did find myself thinking about all the things I wanted to do when I got home, including sewing.  What I didn’t plan on was a small surgical procedure on my hand that kept me out of my office and studio for a few days.  Even now, a week later, it’s still a little tender and sore.  Typing is not as bad as it was earlier in the week, but I can’t even grip my rotary cutter!

I will say, however, it’s given me a chance to catch up on a lot of admin work that I kept putting off to do projects that are far more fun!  And sometimes, that’s okay.

QUILTING

Definitely not a big update in this section this week, but I will be sharing some exciting news very soon!  Be sure to keep an eye out for that.  Remember, if you’re on my newsletter list, you’ll get all the big news delivered straight to your inbox!

CROSS-STITCHING

I’ve been working on some new designs lately and you’ll all be the first to know when I put the finishing touches on them!  Much like the quilting and sewing, cross-stitching will have to wait until my finger heals up a bit more.

 

DISNEY

As you know, I’m a HUGE fan of Disneyland!  I feel like I was definitely a California Girl in another life, lol.  So I certainly needed to keep an open mind in Walt Disney World.  With four parks, it really does have a lot to offer visitors.  And I will say that the EPCOT Art Festival did NOT disappoint!

The Festival of the Arts is certainly an event I’d love to do again.

 

I brought home a number of prints and canvases that I fell in love with and will be absolutely perfect in our Disney-themed family room.  I did also bring home a number of Christmas ornaments, as well as a few special pieces from the Germany Pavilion in EPCOT.

WHAT I’M READING

On our way home from Florida, I was really hoping to sleep on the plane.  To help my plan along, I picked up this book in the airport.  I thought I could simply read a bit and then drift off.  Just kidding!  Before I knew it, I had read half of Next of Kin and really wanted to see how it turned out.  I finished it the night after I got home and really enjoyed it.  I’ll definitely be picking up the next novel in the series, Next to You.

Once I finished that book, I went straight back to my Medlar Mysteries.  I can’t sew much this week, so I might as well read!

 

WHAT I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW

I don’t know if I’ve shared this with you before, but sometimes when I travel, I get the urge to shop.  ESPECIALLY on a Disney vacation!  So what am I loving right now?  My new Vera Bradley suitcase!  I did a little more shopping than expected and it certainly wasn’t all going to fit in the suitcase that came with me from home.  Plus, I really wanted a hard-sided suitcase to protect all the prints that I bought.  This gorgeous green and floral pattern won me over for sure!
