DIY Patchwork Heart Trivet tutorial

I have a new tutorial for you!  This one is easy to make, and a great way to use up your fabric scraps.  AND it's just in time for Valentine season!  (That's a season, right?)

You may have seen my Teapot Trivet tutorial.  This one is very similar in materials and construction.

Sweetest thrift score, lots of baking, and a party in SQT

I hope you guys aren't getting tired of the Seven Quick Takes.  Right now, it's about all I can blog, without falling tooooo far behind.  I hope to get to more tutorials and such after the new year (resolutions!) but for now, this is it.  I have a massively good thrift score to share, some more sewing, and lots of baking, too. . . .

1. thrift score of the YEAR. . . .

Last week, I was shopping for tacky Christmas d├ęcor for our Christmas party, when lo and behold, I stumbled across this beauty. . . .

A little shopkeeping and new bags!

A day late, but here we are.  The shop has some fresh, new listings, and more are on the way!

 (you can find this here)
(and here)

This is a popular size, and they sell out quickly, like these already have. . . .

Pies, sewing, and surgery in SQT


I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving!  We had a great (loud, messy, fun, chaotic) day yesterday.  No illness, no headaches, no burned food.... plenty to be grateful for!

Join me for pie, sewing, surgery, and oh-so-much more in Seven Quick Takes. . . .

DIY baby taggy toy


Several years ago, a lovely friend sent Donovan an adorable handmade taggy toy when he was born.  He was pretty ambivalent about it; he could take it or leave it.  But a couple of years later, along came Henry. . . and he LOVED it.

baby Henry!

Seriously one of his favorite toys.  I wanted to make him another one, and the toy seemed easy enough to make.  But I never had much ribbon lying around the house at the time, so I never got around to making one.

However, with BABIES arriving on the scene very soon, and a plethora of ribbon around here, I decided to make some taggy toys, and write up a little tutorial for them, too!  Friends, they are super simple (and quick!) to make -- easy enough for beginner sewists.

Summer so far, in Seven Quick Takes (hint: BIG news)

refabulous summer

I hope you guys are enjoying your summer!  If you know me at all, or are a regular reader here, you know that I do not enjoy summer. In fact, I hate it so much.  HOWEVER, we've had many blessings, and good and happy things happen over the past couple of months, so I thought I'd share a few of them with you today in Seven Quick Takes. . . .
