Oh yeah, it’s time again…time for one of these posts that has a little bit of this and a little bit of that…no theme at all…expect these are things that have been keeping me busy this past week ( or maybe a little longer!)…
So, first of all, a little bit of home renovation updates: We had ALL our windows replaced! Yep, ALL. It took 3 days and we’ll be paying for these for years and years and years to come, but it was time to bite the bullet. Our new windows are amazing because they OPEN ( yes, little things like that are important 😉 ), they don’t leak when it rains ( yayyyy!), and we are able to see out of them ( no more cloudy windows due to broken seals!). I am also looking forward to their energy-efficiency come winter…hopefully no more cold drafts down my neck!
We also finally painted our garage doors! They were an ugly, faded brown and definitely needed a facelift. After some debating, we decided to match the color green that is also on our shed. Aren’t they so much better-looking? We are planning on painting the wood around our front porch as well, just to carry that green color a little further. And p.s. if you have thought about painting your garage doors but are dreading it, this was probably the easiest paint job we have ever done! If you need any hints or advice, just ask.
On the quilting front, I started a cute little project.
I am combining the idea behind 2 patterns that I shared here a few weeks back and am using these sweet, happy Fall fabrics. Hopefully I will make some headway on these soon so I can display one and give one as a gift before the season is over ;).
Another fun thing I shared in both my facebook page and group earlier this week was the launch of my “shoppe”.
I have been cutting Fat Quarters from my stash and curating them to make nice bundles to sell. I was very happy and surprised to get so many orders already, so a great big thank you to all of you who ordered! I still have a few Fall bundles left so check them out. I am planning on adding new items every now and then so make sure to check back once in a while ;).
For next week I am working on a tutorial on how I approach fusible applique so stay tuned for that. And if you are part of my Facebook group and are participating in the pincushion exchange, I matched you all up so please go find that post and contact your partners ;).
Lots of fun and exciting things to look forward!
Until next time~happy creating!
