Worked on my name tag for Sewing Summit Friday! I was happy to finish up the embroidery and fun little details. It has since been turned into the actual name tag, just need a pin for the back! :)

Will probably make another Jane Market Tote!

George wanted to test out the Finel heart bowl that arrived! I have always loved this bowl, and when I saw one online in less than perfect condition, but for only $10, I jumped! Up close there are lots of scratches in the hearts, but from afar it looks great! :)

  3. seriously LOVE the name tag! :)

  4. love the striped sheets! i agree, george is adorable!

  5. george is the cutest bunny in the world. my daughter loves seeing pictures of him.

  6. I have never really wanted a bunny...until I started reading your blog. George is my favorite! :)

    (Cute name tag too!)

  7. Ack, your name tag stitching is just awesome Jeni! I so wish I was going to be there with you guys - maybe next year!!

    And omigosh, George in a bowl is the cutest thing I've seen in awhile - love, love, love George!!

  8. Love the name tag, perfect for the Sewing Summit. Love the pictures, thank you for sharing.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

  9. LOVE your name tag so much Jeni!!

    Salsa is my biggest weakness!! Did you use a whole jalapeno too! It is making my face hot thinking about it!

    The heart bowl has to be my most favorite now! Where did you pick it up? Etsy?

  10. Your name tag is so perfect for you! I just love it. I'm also loving the fall weather!

  11. I love your nametag, Jeni!! And I'm excited to check out those recipes, too, especially the ided coffee one. Yum!

  12. Dude, the name tag is awesome! I love your embroidery. So cute! And George in the heart bowl? I die.

  13. fab name tag! And thanks for the biscotti recipe - biscotti is my favorite thing to bake in the cooler weather and I love trying new flavors :) btw, if its not too much trouble, could you tell me what the top fabric in the 'stacked' photo is? those little ads for raw milk are great :)

  14. Ok, your name tag is genius. A handmade name tag... this should be obvious to me, but it was not. You know we're all going to want to make our own now. I hope you don't mind? That said, yours is absolutely perfect for YOU!

    Also, your striped sheets bundle really, really speaks to me.

  15. i'm totally jealous of all your crazy talents! the salsa looks delish and the biscotti, yummmm! oh and nice score on the finel, I have a funny story to tell you....

  16. that heart bowl is just adorable, oh yeah and your bunny boy is cute too! he makes me giggle! So how are you adjusting to a new state? When I moved out of state it seriously took me almost a year to adjust, but by your pics, you seem to be adjusting well, having everything situated! I have lived in nebraska for 2 year and STILL have some boxes that are unpacked! hope you had a great labor day weekend!

    Lauren :)
