IT’S WEEK 9 OF SHOW AND TELL!  FIND OUT WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH LIFE IN OUR LITTLE HANDMADE HOME ❤️

Can you believe this is the last weekend in January already?  Time is absolutely flying by, and I’m doing my best to keep up!

Things are busy around here, as usual, and I don’t expect that to change any time soon.  Keep on reading to find out why!

QUILTING

I did spend quite a bit of time at my sewing machine over the past week, but not quite enough, it would seem!  I was really hoping to have a new pattern ready before I left for my Florida vacation, but it looks like it will be coming out in February.  I really like to test my patterns before I put them in my shop, so this one will have to keep!  You can see in the photo below just how far I got with it.

 

 

CROSS-STITCHING

A big thank-you goes out to all of you who responded to my email last week about cross-stitch!  While there are a few of you who don’t consider cross-stitching your thing, many of you said that YES, you would love to see some simple tutorials on YouTube and the blog.  So while it may not happen overnight, there will be a plan to add some of these types of posts. 

Rest assured, for those who really want to stick with quilting, this will be extra and not in place of the quilting content that you enjoy.

 

ORGANIZING

Although it did cut into my working and sewing time last week, I’m sure glad I rearranged my office and sewing room!  I can honestly say that the layouts have helped me to be far more productive than I’ve been in a little while, and that’s saying something!

While I’m super excited about my vacation – we fly out TOMORROW – I’m looking forward to getting into a really good rhythm with work!

 

HOBBIES

This year, I’m really trying to find some new hobbies that I’m not tempted to turn into some form of business!  My nephew has inspired me to try something new to me – Lego!  I’ve always thought it was really cool, but look at this Hogwarts Express that he put together and brought over to me!  Isn’t it amazing?

 

 

I really want to try out the Hogwarts Icons – Collectors Edition.  It’s something fun to work on while I listen to my Harry Potter audiobooks!
