Hello March…

How was your weekend?  (the last of February) I had a great time.  I got away with my husband, did a little shopping and cleaned house.  There was even enough time to whip this little baby out….It is a new pattern called Tumbleweeds, by This and That.  We used the Looking Back charm pack, (it is actually the deal of the day too!)and I love it!  Isn’t it just so pretty?  The colors are so rich.

Not sure what has gotten in me, but I have organization on the brain.  I am obsessed with planning and throwing things away.  I have been going through kids closets, toy bins and bedrooms with garbage sacks all to be donated.  It feels so good to get rid of the excess stuff !

On the down side, I want to remodel EVERYTHING, re paint, add shelves, new furniture  ETC.  Why can’t it all be done in a weekend?  And WHY oh WHY does it have to cost money?!!?  Well, as I narrow down my list, and make it a little more realistic I will share with you what we will actually be able to do.  [cause if you saw what I have now, you’d KNOW I was crazy]

Maybe I’ll do some before and after shots….I don’t want to bore you though.  🙂

Well, go have a great Monday!  Get busy doing your thing.


Abby’s Treasure box…..

Ok, you all know how we love easy and quick with BIG results, right!?  Well, that is exactly what you get with this pattern.  It is called Abby’s Treasure box, from This and That. (Sherri Falls)

Abby’s Treasure Box, made with Riley Blake Fabric scraps!

I think it is a perfect thing for a Christmas gift!  Easy to put together….so easy in fact you’ll want to make more!  🙂  One of our ‘regulars’ in the shop has been making them for her grandchildren.  So, if you are still looking for some last minute gift fillers, this would be perfect!  (plus, you can use up more of your stash, or a charm pack!)  Have you tried this pattern? I’d love to know your take on it?  Did you love it too?  Do tell.
