When I first started this series, I defined Un-Tutorials as sneaky blog posts or Pinterest pins that lead you to believe there's a tutorial behind them - and then there's not. Or maybe there's a bunch of pictures with no real instructions that you can understand.
Well, this month, I'm changing the rules a little bit... two of the 'UnTutorials' are things I designed but never offered for free - until now if it wins! The other one is simply something that I saw in a catalog and put on my to-do list.Read More
August always feel wild to me. Rebelliously hot weather, end-of-summer reckless activities, and 'devil may care' resistance to what is ultimately coming - the return to civilized, structured, and scheduled life.Read More

Every month this year I have given you a new mini quilt pattern. So far 2 have been designed by me and 5 were designed by some of my favorite blogging friends (see those 7 here). On the Saturday before the free pattern is released (which is always the first Monday of the month), I have shown you my version.
Well, I designed the August mini quilt too. It's time to me show you my version, but if I did, that would ruin the surprise!Read More
I love Yahtzee!Read More
A huge THANK YOU:) to everyone who is participating! Keep those gorgeous mini quilts coming!Read More
Okay, okay... I am a month late for a mid-year recap of our Monthly Mini Quilt series. Did anyone else notice how fast time flew by this summer? I mean, I took my daughter shopping for school supplies today... already!
But I still wanted to do a quick round-up of the 6 (oh, I mean 7), free mini quilt patterns that we have posted so far. I have been amazed at the wonderful patterns that my quilty friends have offered us so far... and the August mini quilt is coming in just 5 days!Read More
There is a DIY trend that I simply love... and I might be obsessed with - tassels!Read More
I love little cases. There is something so much fun about packing and organizing with a sweet little handmade case. Especially if you made it yourself!Read More
I have to say, this matching game and carrying case are one of the most darling things I've ever seen!Read More
Here are the new mini quilts for this week!Read More
How cute are these zipper totes? The size is perfect for carrying your phone and wallet. But I must admit that as soon as I had sewn the first one for myself, my 8 year old daughter Cadie took it for herself! I had to make a couple more so that every girl in the house could have one.Read More
Because of crazy college schedules and nutty family stuff, I got married just a few days before Christmas (December 22nd - sheesh!). And my birthday is a week before Christmas. You would think that with my birthday, anniversary, and Christmas going on in the same week I might try to tone down Christmas. But it's actually the opposite - I LOVE Christmas! And I love to sew in anticipation of this glorious holiday all year long too! But to be honest, I have found that I NEED to get my holiday sewing started early because if I wait until December it's far too late to get much done.Read More
