Julian’s away again this week – workshops in Melbourne.  He misses home so much when he has to work away – and we miss him! He rings throughout the day wanting to know how we’re doing, what the animals are up to, to tell us of cool things he’s thought of trying …

But when he leaves, and I give him a hug and kiss and wish him safe travels, he always says “Oh you’ll be glad I’m away!  You won’t do any “farming” – you’ll just spend the week making stuff and having a lovely time ...

weekly phone screenshots from edeenut

I've got a thing with taking screenshots. They make remembering things so easy!
While scrolling through Instagram, some web page, or even Zillow on my phone, I come across a lot of really cool stuff. Some of the stuff I want to save and remember or act upon when I get to my computer. Pinterest is not really somewhere I want to save everything. Let's be honest, things get lost on Pinterest. (Plus, I don't know how to pin things from my phone!)
Here's the post where I share a little peek into my screenshots.

Hobbies Up To Here Episode #29 from Hobbies Up To Here

Social media. It’s everywhere and it can be hard to get away from it.

Today we chatted about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the web when it comes to crafting and hobbies. What sites do you use? Which do you stay away from? Are there any you’ve wanted to check out but haven’t yet?

Be sure to listen in and see what sites and apps we use to keep up our creative juices flowin’!

Organizing 101 (Part 2) from QUilting By-You

Have you had any luck?  Our crafting space can be very fluid.  What is great for one season may not be so great for another.  However, if you have a good bare bones layout with all your large furniture items you will find that you won’t need to move those around and that you have good work flow.

In our last part, I said that I advocate for removing everything from your room and then bringing it back in. I know that sounds a little crazy.  However, when you remove everything from your room you will have to touch ...

Modern cross stitch inspiration! from The Village Haberdashery

I am so in love with modern cross stitch. I’m talking about giant cross stitch. Wall art cross stitch. Cross stitch on furniture. Cross stitch on dishes. Cross stitch bombing in public places! I have seen so many rad ideas lately that I decided to create a pinboard and I wanted to share it with you. Have a look, and I’m sure it will blow your mind!

Well, that part was easy! from Stitchin' Therapy

  Finally. something was easy......I found a pin on Pinterest that was my photo.  The problem was it had been cropped---so my Stitchin'  Therapy did not show---and it was linked to another site.  A form of scraping, I would say.  The site it was linked to was forum board---not my blog.  The board did not have my photo on it, so I do not think they were the culprit.

   I immediately sent a complaint to Pinterest  and asked for the photo to be removed.  I had the proof on my blog, so I knew it was scraped.  Reporting the ...

New Year, New Quilts! from Hayling Quilts!


Wow! It's been a long time since I last posted. I must apologise. But life and all its little problems and concerns got in the way. Plus there was six family birthdays, Christmas (with all its parties and organisation) and then New Years....

Plus I was ill with costochondritis, which was very painful and lasted more than the 10 days my doctor said it would (try six weeks!)

Anyhoo! Back to quilting. I did lose my mojo with it. The longer I stayed away, the more I forgot why I loved it. Then there was one day over the ...

Stitching Up Some Love from From the Strawberry Patch...

I haven't shown a lot of things that I've been sewing lately, mainly because most of the needle and thread activity going on around here has been for gifts! Now that Christmas is behind us, it's safe for me to share. I quilted stacks and stacks of squares and rectangles: that combined, with a layer of insulbrite in between, to become potholders! I copied this idea from a link found on Pinterest

Kundenquilt nach "Migration von Season Evans" from Quiltmanufaktur



Mein letzter Quilt für dieses Jahr, ein Kundenauftrag, der mir besondere Freude bereitet hat! Er ist nach einem Quilt gearbeitet, den ich auf Pinterest gefunden habe: Seattle Modern Quilt Guild 2012 Exhibition - Migration by Season Evans. 

Die Kundin wollte ihrer Schwester zum Geburtstag einen Quilt schenken, der zum Stil ihrer Wohnung passt. Sie zeigte mir Bilder von der Wohnung und wir haben dann überlegt, was am Besten passen würde.

Um ihre eine bessere Vorstellung von möglichen Quilts zu geben, habe ich ihr eine Pinwand bei Pinterest angelegt. Dort finden sich jetzt vor allem ziemlich grafische Quilts, eher in schlichten Farbkombinationen ...

I've got a thing with screenshots. They are up there with the best inventions pretty much.

Infant/Toddler easy 20 minute ties from Amalie's Armfuls

In my personal opinion, if you want a boy to wear a tie to church later on, you have to start when they are born.  That way, even though they are not comfortable, they are simply used to it.  My second personal opinion...is I don't really care for bow ties.  Yes, they are cute on some boys, but they are just wrong on adults and therefore I personally don't want to start a trend that he might like later on.  Like it said, personal opinion.

As I was getting my son dressed for church yesterday morning I ...
