Yesterday was the twentieth anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone, the original UK title, if we are being specific!) I have easily read the Harry Potter series far more than any other book, so while I struggle to deem one book as my “favorite”, it would certainly imply that HP is one I truly enjoy the most.
This spring I have been blogging my way through patchwork quilting! Last time I talked about how I made an individual block and today I will share how those blocks come together to make your quilt top and talking about three common mistakes to avoid.
It’s no secret that I love, no, LOVE theme parties. I’ve been wanting to have a 90s theme party for quite some time so when the opportunity arose I jumped on it.
Six years ago we closed on our house! I can still close my eyes and see our house exactly as it was on that day.
Since we purchased a foreclosure, there were some issues that arose that delayed our closing for a few months and, at the time, it felt like ages! Then we drove from our closing right to the house and walked into the house and found that a huge chunk of the hallway ceiling had suddenly crumbled onto the floor from a leaking pipe. This house was a messy adventure from the very start.
But today I’m not going to talk about the mess or the chaos or projects. Today I thought I’d share some of my favorite things about this house.
If you haven’t been following my adventures in quilting, I am blogging the process of making a twin-size patchwork quilt. Today I am sharing Part 3, where I actually start sewing! (Read Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed them.) In this post I’ll talk about how I sew my squares together into a block.
The trouble I see with a lot of DIY and home renovation projects on the internet is that when things are new things look good. The real question is, how does it stand the test of time? Today I’m talking about the beadboard wallpaper by Graham & Brown that I put up over five years ago.
I have always, always been a camera girl. I went through many a disposable wind-up camera back in my day, and now with the iPhone camera always in my hand I’m always snapping photos throughout the day.
Located on the historic Snake Den Farm in Johnston, RI, Wicked Tulips Flower Farm has only been open for two seasons but is already so wildly popular that their tickets sell out regularly. The farm just opened up for the season last week and their smaller field is in full bloom.
I wanted to make sure I posted about my trip right away since their season is so short. Hopefully some of you local readers can make the trip.
Prepare for tulip photo overload (it’s so beautiful, I couldn’t help but take a million pictures) and some tips if you plan to visit.
In recent years I have dabbled in quilting (I’ve made 5) and find the process to be very fun and relaxing. I am embarking on my next quilt and thought it would be fun to blog the process this time instead of just the end result!
A long time ago my mom was going through her linen closet and asked if I wanted my old Muppets bedsheets from when I was little. The answer was yes! I love the Muppets and loved my Kermit and Miss Piggy sheets. I knew immediately I wanted to use them as a quilt backing. That was about five years ago and they have been waiting in my fabric bin. But now their time has come!
