Lined Drawstring Bags by Jeni Baker

Happy Thursday! I'd like to start a new regular series here on the blog starting today! I am finding that my "catch up" type posts are getting more rare by the month so I thought a nice weekly space for that type of post would be a good idea. I'll share some of my favorite smaller moments and happenings once a week. I'm hoping to do this for the most part on Thursdays, but it may fluctuate a bit depending on what's going on behind the scenes!

My Shining Stars quilt came back from being quilted by Melissa Averinos! I am so in love with what she did with it, I can't wait to bind it and share!

I've been knitting the Follow Your Arrow Mystery Shawl by Ysolda and this is my finished Clue 1B.

Half-Square Triangles by Jeni Baker

Did quite a bit of half-square triangle sewing this past week!

I couldn't resist buying myself this ridiculously cute Matrioshka pocket knife. I bought mine here.

Didn't have too much thrifting luck while I was here.  I did pick up this unused and still in the package vintage tablecloth at an antique store!

  2. I have to confess that last week I saw your instagram picture of the swiss army knife on your sidebar and immediately found a website and bought it! I love it! Funny enough I've actually used the scissors on it :)

  3. Definitely with you on popcorn and Sherlock.

  4. Lovely colourful projects. And george is so cute, I would love to see him every week.

  5. George could have his own weekly link up and I don't think any of your readers would mind -- he's adorable
