Weekly Snapshot

Let's try this weekly snapshot thing again! It's been a while since my last one, but I do like the idea, so here we go! I'm going to blame it on this winter we've had.  It's just been never ending. I'm looking forward to welcoming Spring as soon as possible. Until then, I've been splurging on fresh flowers.  I figure it's pretty cheap therapy!

Lots has been going on in the last month or so.  We decided not to try to move, after having zero luck finding another place.  So instead, we made some major changes to my sewing room to accommodate a desk for Michael's computer. I'll take nice photos soon and share!

I'm usually a handmade purse type of girl, but this Orla Kiely bag was just too perfect to pass up!

Sewing away, still loving my Singer Featherweight.  I've been using it almost exclusively for my piecing for a year now almost!

I finally made Anna's Runaround Bag a few weeks ago!  I remember when the pattern first came out (2010!), I wanted to make it so badly! For whatever reason I didn't get around to making it until now, and it's awesome! I love the way it turned out!

I also finished another hand knit a few weeks ago.  Just a simple squishy cowl using some super bulky Madelinetosh ASAP yarn.  I needed something similar to my Gaptastic cowl to wear that wouldn't get so dirty.  I've been wearing this cowl tons!

Working on a few smaller projects and trying really hard to finally use some of my craft books.  I'm terrible about buying books and never making anything from them, so I'm trying to change that!

  2. Great idea to try to do projects from the books you buy. I too am terrible about buying books and then never doing anything with them. I'll add that to my bucket list!

  6. I have had that Patchwork Please book forever and just recently made a Christmas gift from it for a friend. I figure if you at least make one thing from a book you buy, it's a worthwhile purchase.

  7. Lovely post. I agree that flowers a just the right bit of color to add to this never ending Winter! But wait! Today is the first day of Spring! Bring those flowers on!

  8. Aw, sweet George in the Pyrex! I adore your sewing room too!

    Loved hearing you speak at Mill House Quilts on Sunday and getting to meet you. It was a lot of fun!
