Hello, and Happy Tuesday friends! This past week was a week of big finishes! I feel so accomplished, and really pleased with the work too! If you've been reading my blog for a bit of time, you'll know I've been working on stitching Santa's Village, a series of patterns from Country Cottage Needleworks. I started… Continue reading To- Do Tuesday 5-22-18 | BIG finishes!
Hello, and Happy Tuesday, friends! How did you do with your projects last week? I have to admit, I hit the wall creatively and really struggled with getting my stuff done. I didn't do any cross stitching at all, I just spent the evenings feeling a bit zoned out and tired. I managed to finish… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 10-24-17 | Hitting The Wall

Hello and Happy Tuesday, friends! This past week I kept up with my goals of having 16 bags done by Friday for the large shop order, and three more bags sewn by Monday. I confess to having hand-stitched closed the linings of the 16 bags on Saturday. I wasn't stuck out in the sewing room… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 9-12-17 | Santa’s Village Update
Hello friends! It's time to check in and see how we're doing with our To-Do lists. I sewed every day this past week, for about 7 hours a day.

I also was working figuring out… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 1-3-2017 | Happy New Year!!
This week I seemed to have a bit of sewing A.D.D. going on. I finished Mister's quilt top, got the backing cut to size, and cut and ironed the batting. I was all set to baste everything together, but then another project started screaming my name. Normally I can focus on getting one project finished… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 12-20-16 | 2017 Plans
This week's Finished Friday is my second Hippo Hobo Bag. I made this for my sister-friend, Ana. I made her mom the 49er Hippo Hobo Bag about a month ago for her birthday. I know I've mentioned these two women before on my blog, but I just can't say enough how special they are to… Continue reading Finished Friday | Ana’s Hippo Hobo Bag
Happy Tuesday! I was happy to have gotten my finished Friday post of the Hippo Hobo bag posted on Friday. I am pretty sure my friend loves it. I've already cut out pattern pieces and interfaced them for my second Hippo Hobo bag. I made the strap handle for the new bag last week. And… Continue reading To-Do Tuesday 11-15-16 | Work In Progress
The Hippo Hobo Bag pattern was released by Emkie Designs in April and I knew I wanted this bag pattern as soon as I saw it. I bought it not long after release, but did not have time to make a bag from it until recently. I knew I wanted to make a bag for… Continue reading Finished Friday | 49er Hippo Hobo Bag
