Thesis Quilt Top, originally uploaded by jenib320.
I was able to get my thesis quilt top pieced this weekend! Yay! I had been playing around with this layout and decided to just go for it. SO glad I did! (Thanks for your encouragement Amanda and Christina!) All fabrics were hand dyed/batiked by me this past winter using Malka Dubrawsky's Color Your Cloth. It was such a fun process, I can't wait to find time to do it again!


Vintage Sheets, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Had major luck thrifting this morning! 12 sheets and 6 pillowcases! Most are being added to the shop!

Ashley pinned this awesome Peanut Butter Banana Bread on pinterest, and I had to immediately try it out! It is AMAZING! New favorite recipe!


MY BIKE!!, originally uploaded by jenib320.
My bike is HERE! We picked it up today and I assembled it (all by myself!) this afternoon. I love, love, love it! Can't wait until it's warm enough to ride it! PS - It's from Walmart! Only $90!

  30. What an awesome bike- LOVE that it could totally pass for vintage! You'll get alot of use out of it in Madison. The bike paths practically traverse the entire city. And the photos of George in the basket are too cute for words :)

  31. George-Bunny in the basket pretty much made me reach my cuteness quota for the week.

    Love the bike! I am so tempted to buy one right now, despite our fickle Ohio weather.

  39. I just read through your entire Art of Choosing series and really loved it. I am a very new quilter and so all of this advice is so helpful. I was wondering though, when you buy fabric for your stash, how much do you usually get? A fat quarter, 1/2 yard, yard? Also, while reading I noticed you mentioned Malka Dubrawsky. I am taking my first ever quilting class with her starting Monday! I am super excited to learn quilting from start to finish, especially the basting, quilting and binding parts.

  40. Oh how cute! I'm loving George. He's a Netherland Dwarf Sable right?

    ReplyDelete
  41. aaaaw, what a cute bike! and George!!!!! ack, he's so adorable! :) Hope you can ride the bike soon and enjoy the spring weather (whithout the snow, you know!) ~Jessica

  42. So cute. I'm getting that bike for my birthday. Did you add the basket on or did it come with the bike? :) Just curious!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the color of your new bike and I love that there are no fancy-schmancy hand brakes or gears to mess with. Just push the pedals backwards to brake, right? When I saw the photo I started humming the bike riding music from The Wizard of Oz in my head. I am making my way through your blog, bookmarking all the way. Hope I live long enough to make all the bookmarked projects. N
