Its been a little nutty around here. Surprising right? 😉 Now that Hubs is back on the road, the past few days have sort of fallen into a manageable routine… the house is mostly clean, I can take a nap guilt free and I’m getting stuffs done 🙂 The past few days have been full of cutting, ironing and sewing. Lots and lots of sewing 🙂
As of right now I’m up to 55 6.5 inch string blocks. These will get patched together in groups of 4 to create 12.5 inch blocks and eventually, when I’ve made 288 of them, it will turn into a queen size quilt!! I’m piecing it from 85% scraps. I’ve cut a few strips off of some of my favorite fabrics to include.
So far these 2 blocks are my favorite. The combination of colors and patterns just seems to work well in my brain. And those little deer!! I love them! I’m hoping to have the block done before Feb. 6th so that I can piece this top together at the quilting retreat 🙂
I don’t often post outfits that I’ve worn, but I got to wear something new that I’ve had in my closet a while on Sunday. I figure that’s a good reason to celebrate with a few pictures 🙂
I purchased this dress on black Friday and got a sweet deal! I purposefully bought a size down from what I was wearing then. I finally remembered to try it on this past Sunday before church… lo and behold!… it fits! In fact its actually a little on the big side now 🙂 Still, I felt pretty. I got lots of complements and for the first time in a while I actually WANTED to take a couple selfies 🙂
Now for the sale I mentioned in the title!
Hubs doesn’t get his first pay check until the end of the month and we have a few bills due before then. I’m selling a bunch of awesome handmade goodies at a discount to make that possible! I hope you’ll help me out and spread the word 🙂 If you share this image on Facebook or instagram, be sure to leave me a comment and let me know so I can enter you in the contest!
