Friday Favorites 31

Friday, August 12, 2022

Happy Friday! It's time for another Friday Favorites post! Catch up on previous posts here: Friday Favorites Archives

- These solid log cabin blocks by Matthew Friesz are so striking!

- Very tempted by the double wedding ring cheater prints in this collection*.

- The siloutte of the new Corin pattern from Grainline Studios is really nice. I need to get back into garment sewing!

- I had some decent luck at the thrift stores this week. My favorite thing I found were these three vintage floral napkins. I love finding any kind of vintage tablelinens, but I have a soft spot for napkins in particular! They will need a good soak in oxi-clean, then they'll be ready to be put into rotation!

- Speaking of thrifting, I started this puzzle* that I thrifted over the weekend!

- Made this corn salad from Pinch of Yum and loved it! We made the dressing and quinoa as is, but did a slightly different bowl. We used raw corn, black beans, raw cherry tomatoes, raw peppers, and avocado. So fresh and very little cooking involved!

- Last weekend I finally spent some time resetting and dusting my vintage pyrex collection. I had pushed back all the sets against the walls when Dusty arrived, so that she wouldn't be able to knock them over. She seems completely uninterested in them so I think (hope!) it's safe to put them back. Way back when I wrote a whole series on vintage pyrex which you can find here: Vintage Pyrex Series.

- In love with this rainbow patchwork bag made by Joy using my Lined Drawstring Bag Expansion Pattern!

- Opened a new bottle of my favorite perfume* this week. It's not super strong, which is exactly what I like.

- Kitty is always nearby when I'm working :)

Have a Great Weekend!

  1. Wow I love the rolled hem on the napkins! Didn’t occur to me to do that but I think I may try it on some Essex linen pieces I have for a more dressed up napkin.
