so, I guess I'm one of the last ones to know about Etsy. but I love it anyways. I found the perfect necklace and I can't wait to look around more. I'm getting so much inspiration from all the blogs I've been looking at!!! I've bid on some fabric to make a dog bed for my lovely Zelda (hopefully I win it!). the Boy is on spring break next week, so hopefully I can get both my quilts done! and maybe I'll get some nice fabric for my birthday on the 11th ;)

I have some pictures to upload, that I'll do later. (zelda, the snow and another favourite!)

the 50's!

Well, I got my little sewing machine (and I mean little and basic). So I've started to sew my quilts again and took some pictures of them being a "Work In Progress". I've become addicted to SewMamaSew (see blogs I follow)! They have SO many cute ideas. I just need a pattern for an apron...anyone? 
I also found a cute pattern called "Coin Stacker baby quilt" that is featured on the moda bake shop. This pattern works out perfectly for the two Chic-Or-Treat charm packs I bought! I'll replace the white with black, and try to find a
cute backing fabric. That one will be passed on to my son, as well as a large red and white quilt I'd like to make (his favourite colour is red). Does anyone know
 have simple patterns? I'm also looking for a march fabric swap to participate in, 

so if someone has information please pass it along!!!!

Also, check out this site for some neat 50's stuff (I stumbled across it looking for diner recipes for my birthday dinner!

And here's a link to a 
green comet that you should be able to see in the sky for the next few

I'm currently playing around with different skins. Comme
nts? Suggestions? com
plaints? let me know.

I have always adored fabric. Never been taught how to sew, but always been drawn to fabric. So - I've taken up quilting! (even though I don't have a sewing machine) I've decided I *love* sampler quilts, and I want to make a bunch of halloween themed quilts haha. Here a few sites I've stumbled upon just recently...enjoy. I'll post some pictures of what I've been sewing together if I can get the motivation to hand stitch it all again...

Valentines Day and Launch!!

well, its the day before valentines day and I'm launching my first post (yay!)

I've been looking for something to do for valentines day and this idea on the martha stewart page hit the spot. chocolate french toast sandwiches! these would also be great for a birthday or a sleepover. Try using cookie cutters to pre-cut the bread before hand for fun shapes! follow the link below for more details.

I've also found a potato soup recipe I plan on trying this weekend. I'll upload the recipe now, and update with a picture and let you know how it tasted after we've ate it! Let me know if you like this recipe.
