My Favorite Salt Soak!

Monday, January 7, 2019






A little over a year ago when I started fitness classes, I really enjoyed coming home and soaking in a tub of hot water to relax the muscles and help me sleep!  Sometimes I would throw in some Epsom Salt if I was really sore but never knew for sure if it really helped.


Scrappy Half Square Triangle Quilt Block {And A Bonus}

Friday, September 28, 2018




I'm part of a great little online group of quilters - there are 11 of us - and we have this awesome deal where each month one of us chooses a quilt block that we would like all 10 of the other quilters to make for us!  This is my second year and I've just loved it.  (Pictured above is the block that I had all the gals make for me.  I have not done anything with the blocks yet... but it is going to be a picnic quilt!)

A Sweet Pillow Pattern {And A Giveaway}

Friday, May 4, 2018



About a year ago I met the sweetest fellow maker on Instagram, Ali @arabesquescissors.  I think she caught my eye in the beginning because her Instagram feed was full of the most beautiful and amazing things that she had sewn.  Her eye for detail and the way that she finished her projects was just so incredible.

Sew Sweet Bee Club!

Monday, April 30, 2018





Hello friends!  Last year I was asked if I'd like to participate in a Sewing Bee Club and after learning the details I was all in.  It works like this:  there are eleven members and each member has a month that they are the Queen Bee.  They get to choose the quilt block they would like all the other members to make for them.  We each make the block and mail it by the end of the month (hopefully... I've been known to be a little late.  Sigh.)
