Friday Favorites 07

Friday, February 18, 2022

Happy Friday! It's time for another Friday Favorites post. Hope your week went well!

- We're having a mini wave of warm weather so I went on a short walk after taking down our outdoor lights. Right around the corner from our house I saw someone's snowdrops have emergered! It immediately put a smile on my face. I'm so excited for Spring!

- Discovered the work of Linda K. Smith (found via Instagram) this week. I love her use of color and the way she uses transparency in her pieces.

- I really want to make one of these quilted door stoppers by Deborah Fisher! I even have some plain cement bricks in the garage already.

- I finished reading The Two Towers*! I read The Hobbit many times as a kid and teenager, but this is my first time reading The Lord of The Rings. Now on to Return of the King.

- The big post refresh for this week was my Modern Plus Quilt Tutorial. It's going to be 12 years old this year, WHOA! I actually have fabrics pulled for another plus quilt. Hoping to get to it sometime this Spring!

- This past weekend we finally watched Hunt for the Wilderpeople (on Netflix). It's been on our list forever. We really loved it. It falls into my favorite category of movie/show, Whimsical. It feels right at home with things like Penelope, The Beautiful Fantastic, Good Omens, and Pushing Daises.

- Finally, after having my Cricut Maker* for years, I'm wading into cutting vinyl for labeling things. So far I have used it to label Dusty's automatic feeder, her food container, and our peanut container (one of Michael's favorite snacks). I still feel so fancy every time I successfully cut and transfer something!!

- One of Michael's coworkers gave us flan this week (Thanks Andrés, you make the best flan!) and it reminded me that I really want to try making this chocoflan from Smitten Kitchen.

- Speaking of chocolate, we picked up a bar of this peppermint chocolate recently and it is like a Thin Mint cookie but in chocolate bar form. We devoured it!

- Dusty loves to help me write my blog posts. :)

Have a Great Weekend!
