Friday Favorites 08

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

- I actually made my first fabric purchase of the year this week! I picked up some of this art gallery fabrics rayon* to make a dress.

- These pillows by Gabrielle Colville make me want to take up tufted rug making.

- How sweet are these little paintings by Jenean Morrison? It sounds like they'll be for sale in her retail location and online this weekend!

- This colorful mural by Shapes For the People is so cheerful. I'd love to get more creative with my paint choices!

- My big thrift find of the week was the Happy Isles Puzzle by The Magic Puzzle Company*. Their puzzles are super unique and have a fun surprise at the end.

- I'm really excited about these green twister echinacea seeds from Select Seeds that I ordered. I just couldn't resist that color combination!

- Made these four ingredient peanut butter cookies by Joy the Baker. Quick and delicious!

- I've been doing some woodworking this week (I'll share that project soon), and these corner clamps from Rockler I picked up last year have really made my life easier!

- This year one of my goals is to reevaluate our current systems for recycling, waste, etc. I want to get started composting this Spring, but something I did this week was take a big bag of plastic films and bags to the grocery store to recycle. Our Aldi has a bin in their vestibule. I used this website as a reference for what I could recyle there. Felt good!


- Dusty hanging out in the sewing room with me :)

Have a Great Weekend!

  1. I used to take the plastic from grocery bags. Cut strips and crochet them into area rugs for by the back door. I would hose off when they got to dirty and they lasted for years and years. Our stores no longer give out plastic bags for groceries. I am now looking to find some as my rug is finally getting to the point where I think it will soon need replaced. I as attempting to think how many years ago I made it and I just can’t come up with a year. I have made so many to give as gifts over the years I am not sure when I made mine.
