WELCOME BACK TO MY WEEKLY SHOW AND TELL WHERE YOU CAN FIND OUT WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH LIFE IN OUR LITTLE HANDMADE HOME ❤️

You know the old saying about March, the Lion and the Lamb?  Yeah, Mother Nature is ROARING into Spring around here, let me tell you.  The temperatures dipped well below zero again, and we’ve had a couple of fresh snowfalls since my last update. 

I will say this, though.  The colder the weather is, the more I want to snuggle into my sewing room and get things done!

 

Some days, the hardest part of my job is choosing which collection to work in next. It’s a pretty good life.

 


 


 

I decided that over this weekend and in the coming weeks, I’m focused on getting things DONE!  As in, I will be working on projects that I’ve started and left hanging.  And what a great feeling that will be to get those off my plate – or my sewing table, as it were.

Once my WIPs are out of the way, I can dive into my to-do list, which seems to be getting a lot longer lately.  So many things I want to do, and only so much time to do them in.

QUILTING

Did you get a chance to see my latest tutorial?  If not, be sure to check out my Quilt-As-You-Go Placemats!  They are the perfect Spring addition to our dining room table, especially in the gorgeous Antoinette fabric.  I’m in love with these colours and I’ll be whipping up a table runner to match!

Next up on my list is a quilt pattern from Sheri + Chelsea using their wonderful Strawberry Lemonade line.  The colours are so fun and vibrant, but I don’t find them overwhelming at all.

Not only will I be making this quilt, but I’ll be putting together some kits as well!  I’m hoping to have those in the shop in the next couple of weeks.

As much as I love trying new things, I do still sometimes go back to my early patterns.  While I was cleaning my sewing room, I stumbled on these charm packs and thought they would be PERFECT for my Simply Charming Pinwheels quilt!

Aren’t these Charm Packs oh so springy?!

 

It will certainly add a touch of Easter to our home.

 

CRAFTS

With little Miss P’s “Fairy First Birthday” coming up in just a couple of weeks, I’ll be pulling out my Cricut to help my daughter get prepared for the party!

Be sure to pop over to the Cricut site to find some really great savings in March!

 

ORGANIZING

I’m always looking for ways to be a little more organized in my sewing room and my latest purchase is sure helping!  I love to keep my quilting rulers at my fingertips and this new Omnigrid Ruler Rack is PERFECT for my sewing table!

I’ve added several more rulers to this organizer and it’s awesome!

 

WHAT I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW

If you are looking for a pair of amazingly lightweight, comfortable, washable, go-with-everything shoe, you might want to look at the Allbirds Tree Skippers.  I just got my first pair and all I have to say is WOW!  I’ll be packing these to Disneyland with me for sure!

 

CELEBRATIONS

I haven’t mentioned this previously, but my birthday is in March and I’m planning to celebrate in style!  PLUS, I think one of the best ways to celebrate a birthday is to give a gift to you!  Be sure to keep an eye on your newsletters, as there may be a sale coming up in my shop

TRAVEL

California is calling once again, and I’ll be headed to the sunny land of SoCal for a week at Disneyland with my mom, daughter and granddaughter in early April!  I can hardly wait to see my Home Away from Home again.
