Friday Favorites 46

Happy Friday! It's time to bring back Friday Favorites posts! Catch up on previous posts here: Friday Favorites Archives

- One thing I want to add to these posts is fabric stacks. I'm going to try to curate a stack of fabrics from my stash (hopefully every week!) and share it here. The selfish goal in this is to inspire myself to come up with interesting combinations that could then lead to pulls for new projects. This first stack is a gimmie, it's been sitting on my desk for a while. It's primarily Sweet as Honey by Bonnie Christine (apologies this collection is quite old at this point) with some other prints mixed in.

- I checked this book* out from the library last week and immediately made the Strawberry Sour Cream Pound Cake. It was really tasty, and there are a bunch of other recipes I've got bookmarked to try!

- A favorite recent lunch is these egg rolls by Nadiya Hussain. I make mine without the tomato, but add a little shredded cheese. So quick and delicious.

- I finished reading the Wheel of Time series* this week!! I had good intentions to finish it before the end of the year, but then I decided I didn't want to rush through the final book. It was so good, I can't wait to read the series again. All said and done the 15 books have a total of 4.4 million words. WHOA.

- I thrifted this vintage sheet over the weekend that I've never seen before. I am so in love with the colors, I think I want to build a whole quilt around it!

- Loved watching this video from Food52: Rare & Magical, Explore Dansk Homewares: Into The Archive. I didn't realize they bought Dansk!

- Very excited that the Magic Puzzle Company* has a new series of puzzles available for preorder! If you've never tried one of their puzzles, they're really fun.

- It's sumo citrus season!! I found some at my local grocery store this week, which was exciting. If you've never had one before, they're actually a large mandarin. They are super sweet and in my opinion have a bit of a floral flavor. Fair warning, they can be pricey!

- This week we celebrated Dusty's gotcha day! I can't believe she's already been with us for a year. She's the best.

Have a Great Weekend!

  1. I'm very excited about the new Magic Puzzles! Our whole family enjoys those, I've been wondering when they would have new ones. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yes yes yes to Magic Puzzle Co, sumo citrus and those egg rolls. Ever since I saw her make them on an episode of her tv show, I’ve been making them, but like you mine usually have cheese and no tomato… more like an omelet/quesadilla mashup but so easy to make and eat.

    I’ve been making a bunch of your lined drawstring bags this month! I’d made one years ago that’s been in my gift wrap stash for years and this year, the person I wrapped a gift for seemed more excited about the bag than the gift inside. When I realized they intended to keep the bag I felt a bit anxious until I realized it was a good excuse to buy some more fabric and make MORE bags. I think I’m up to 5 or 6 now and they are all SO adorable. Thanks for creating such a fantastic pattern!
