Before we dive into today's post, I want to announce the winner of the Little Bits Quilt Bee book! Ms. choose #203, who is...

Julie! Congrats! You should have an email waiting from me! :) Thank you all for your kind words and comments on my pillow! It was a lot of fun to make, and I look forward to making other projects from the book!

I sewed up a storm this weekend making drawstring bags! I have about 20 hours of car ride ahead of me this week as we travel first to Michigan then to Ohio and finally back to Wisconsin, so I'm hoping to get the pattern finished for next week! Don't they look pretty all stacked together? :)

Thank you, thank you, to everyone who took advantage of my shop sale! I appreciate your support! As I'll be away from my inventory over the holiday weekend, the shop will be closed starting tomorrow and will reopen on Monday!

Did you know that you could get Cadbury chocolates (mini eggs!!), this time of year?!

Working from Home a video by jenib320 on Flickr.

It's been a while since I shared a George video! This morning George was just working so hard on his basket, he really wanted to pull it into his box. Too funny! Such a goof rabbit! :)

Today I love the..
Smell of: New orange dishsoap
Sound of: 30 Rock
Taste of: Mint Truffle Hersey Kisses
Sight of: Clean sewing room
Feel of: Wearing PJs all day

Good Things about Today:
- Good light today!
- Amanda and Anna are having sales!
- About to make pie dough!
- Productive day!


  1. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those eggs are SOOOOOOO addicting. Must find some now!

  2. I love the video of George! I enjoy reading your blog and George always makes me smile.

  3. I am on high alert now for those eggs! I LOVE them!

  4. I definitely need to make more of your drawstring bags, so handy!

  5. Cute George. I just want to snuggle with him. Thanks for the info on the Cadbury mini eggs. I lurve them and I would be in heaven to get a fix now instead of waiting until Easter time.

  6. Seriously want to come over to your house! I am so jealous that you found the mint-truffle kisses - I was looking for them the other day and couldn't find them anywhere. Oh well, I guess the search continues!

    And by the way, your Sewing Circle pillow totally rocks!

  7. Love the new bags! I'm definitely going to have to find time to make some before the holidays. Don't know how, but I know they'd be handy!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the George video. So cute! Enjoy your Thanksgiving break!
