Friday Favorites 03

Friday, January 21, 2022

Happy Friday! I'm back with another Friday Favorites post. Hope you've all had a good week!

- It's been ages since I did much embroidery, but this '100 days' piece by Zoe Gilbertson (found via Pinterest) made me think I should pick it back up again! Be sure to click through the rest of their work, it's beautiful.

- I just barely discovered the work of Laura Petrovich-Cheney (found via Instagram), and I'm already inspired. It's like patchwork but with salvaged wood instead of fabric.

- Most of my crafting time this week has been spent planning and designing a scrap quilt. I think I've got it figured out! I also sorted my scraps from the last two years (yikes), I had really been procrastinating. If you're interested I have a post all about how I organize and store fabric scraps.

- I took advantage of the snow we got to do a little snow dyeing. Usually I use ice, but it was very conveient to use the snowfall instead. I dyed some cotton dish towels to get my feet wet again. I use this tutorial by Dharma Trading Co as a guide.

- We've been giving our dehydrator a workout this whole month by dehydrating fruit! So far we've done apples, pears, strawberries, kiwi and pineapple. This weekend we're going to try peaches and nectarines. We use this basic under $50 dehydrator, which plenty powerful for fruit!

- On the recommendation from my friend Jacey I took out the book Weekday Vegetarians by Jenny Rosenstrach* from the library. I'm interested in trying a number of recipes but this week we made the Artichoke Dip Pizza. It was tasty and we had everything on hand which is always nice!

- Speaking of the library, I finally checked out the 2019 Little Women movie. Michael and I both loved it! I saw the movie that came out in the 90s, but never read the book. Once I finish reading Lord of the Rings (on Two Towers right now!), I'm going to pick up the book.

- I have been wanting a more serious glue gun for a while now and for Christmas I finally broke and bought this Cordless Ryobi Compact Hot Glue Gun. I got around to trying it for the first time this week and it was so conveient. And it got really hot. I can't wait to get crafting!!

- I'm very excited to pick up a few sheets of the 2022 Love stamps designed by Bailey Sullivan. The 2021 Love stamp Bailey designed last year is a favorite.

- Kitty says hi! She's slowly discovering all the best napping spots in the house.

Have a Great Weekend!
