Friday Favorites 33

Friday, August 26, 2022


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

- I've been working on my vintage sheet bear paw quilt all week and I got the top put together on Wednesday! I'm so excited to pick a backing sheet and get it finished.

- Pinterest has been showing me all kinds of vintage sheet projects, and this pink/yellow quilt by Marit really stood out!

- I ordered some new stamps this week for shipping pattern orders. I think these ones are my favorite that I picked up! It's hard to choose though!!

- I love this quilt by Luke Haynes made from repurposed textiles.


- We tried the corn butter farro by Smitten Kitchen and it was a winner! I used a total of 3 Tbs of butter but I think next time I'd reduce that to 2.

- I made spaetzle recently, which I usually don't do during the summer. I really need to upgrade my spaetzle maker to stainless steel, mine has a few rust spots. I have my eye on this one*.

- I tried out the technique in this video to pre-crack the spine of a paperback book, so far I think it is making a difference!

- How cute are these little patchwork pincushions by Tami Gray Voth? I have a bunch of those aluminum molds hanging around, I need to use them for something like this!

- My favorite porcupine Rico eating some corn on the cob!


- A few months ago someone left an anonymous comment (if it was you, thank you!!) recommending this under $2 cat toy*. I Dusty goes absolutely wild for it. Loves it so so much. I tried to get a photo of her playing with it, this is the best I could get!

Have a Great Weekend!

I always break in my own new books, and the library's, too, if they haven't been broken in, as shown in the video. It keeps the spines from cracking and gives the books a longer life.
