Pinterest Contest! from Lilac Lane by Melissa Stramel

We are over halfway through the year!
This is a good enough reason to have a contest right?
This contest is just for fun and there are not too many formal rules; just enjoy yourselves!

Lets make some boards on Pinterest of one of these 3 subjects:
Build an Outfit around a Lilac Lane Pattern
A Perfect Summers Day built around at least one Lilac Lane Pattern (can include other patterns)
Fun Fabric Choices to use with a (or 2 or 3) Lilac Lane Pattern (must pin the pattern as well)

This is an example of a board I made ...

Quilt my Chairs from Road Home Quilting

Pinterest convinced me I could do this. Time to refinish ye 'ol dinning room chairs.

Yes, this is my dining room chair. I know, yikes, right?
"Chair, meet Drill."
This soft sanding attachment was less than a $1 at the hardware store.
[Why aren't quilty tools always that cheap? Just sayin'.]
You could use sandpaper instead. But, hey, if you have a drill...
You'll also need:
screwdriver (ask your chair what kind)
mallet (optional)
old towel
old quilt :)
staple gun
3 spraypaints: primer, dark blue, black

Looks better already right? Here's how it goes:

A TALE OF TWO SEAGULLS from That's Sew Kerry

2 Seagulls and a Lighthouse

It really has been an age since I have sat down and updated you on my shinanigans, whilst I may have been scarce I really have not been idol!! In fact this very morning I very nearly murdered 2 seagulls.....

I have had a project in mind for quite some time now and have actively been looking for patterns, ideas and inspiration on how to bring this together and move it forward. It had to be a nautical theme and have a fairly muted blue/grey/navy/ palette with maybe a few splashes of red ...

(eindelijk) pinterest ontdekt.... from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer

Sinds kort ben ik ook ( een beetje ) actief op pinterest.

Leuk om aan mee te doen en al heel veel moois ontdekt!
Je kunt er ideeën bij op doen en foto's verzamelen van onderwerpen die je interesseren.
En je kan het zo gek niet bedenken of er zijn mooie foto's van te vinden...

Tot nu toe heb ik nog maar 10 borden maar iedere dag komen er wel een paar foto's bij.

In plaats van eerst een recept of een patroon op te slaan klik ik nu op het plaatje en "pin"het vast op één van ...

going around in circles... from Ellyn's Place

I confess, I am easily distracted! I have a wonderful list of projects to work on, then I see something I like and off I go in a different direction. Recently, Laura over at Love the Bluebird has been crocheting mandalas. First I saw them popping up on her instagram. Hers are sweet and pastel and pretty. I loved them. Started looking up tutorials on Pinterest, checked out some links on her blog. Next thing I knew I was digging in my yarn stash and crocheting in circles! Of course, there are no pastels to be had in my stash ...

Umbauarbeiten und Giveaway from Quiltmanufaktur

Gestern hatte ich etwas Zeit und Muße, an meinem Blogdesign rumzubasteln.
Wie ihr sehen könnt, habe ich mein Layout ein ganz kleines bisschen um das Blog-Logo herum verändert. Das war mal nötig, nachdem ich schon so ein schönes Logo von meinem Freund Tobi für meine Website gestaltet bekam :-) Er hatte auch die Idee mit dem vorherigen Blog-Logo in Form eines Etiketts - jetzt war es aber an der Zeit, beide Seiten irgendwie aneinander anzupassen!

Logo "Quiltmanufaktur" von Tobias Merkle

Ich liebe diesen tollen Stern, den er mir gestaltet hat! Hier auf dem Blog ...

It Was Spring Yesterday from Kitty and Me Designs

But today, there's a very cold wind blowing.  It's sunny though so that helps!  I want to get back out in the yard and clean up some more but that wind is a bit cold for me.

I took Lucy to the vet this morning and her weight is holding at 7 pounds 2 ounces.  The special kidney diet is working.  She's sleeping now but she's been more talkative these past few weeks.  I ordered a special vitamin supplement for her for kidney health.  Our vet said it can't hurt so I'll start giving ...

this and that from Ellyn's Place

Yay! my wall of minis is beginning to come together! I put my three Thimbleblossoms minis up the other day and I must say, I love the way they all play together....
 As you can see, I have lots of room to add to this wall.... also, my fabric is all unpacked but looking rather messy. sigh.
 Has anyone else been contemplating making a Marcelle Medallion quilt from the Liberty Love book? Or am I the only one that crazy? Do a search for them on Pinterest, you will be amazed! I have to be honest, it's the center ...

Color Palettes and Combinations from Kitty and Me Designs

Since I'm working on a project that I can't share at the moment, I thought I'd offer a suggestion for anyone who struggles with choosing color palettes and color combinations.  Whether you're a crazy quilter or a sane quilter, you might find this helpful!

Ya'll know I love Pinterest!  Yes, it's a time consumer so I try to put a limit on how long I spend there but it does have it's benefits!

I've put together a board for Color Palettes:

Even if you don't struggle with color combinations ...

Working with Pinterest Secret Boards from Simply Fresh Vintage

I don’t know about you, but some of my best “a-ha” moments come in the middle of the night. I’ve heard of those that keep a notebook by their bed so that when these flashes of brilliance come to them, they can quickly write them down.  Great idea, but that would also mean that I have to turn on a light to see what I’m writing.  And I don’t think that would make Mr. SFV very happy.  So instead, I just try to remember come morning, and then I write it down.

The other day I ...

And my new research project is…. from Monkey's on the Porch

Freezer meals!  I thought you were probably wondering what I had been up to since I promised not to bombard you with daily blog entries.  I’m sure you are probably wondering, why freezer meals?  If not, you might want to pretend.  Honestly, it’s because we need to eat better as a family and sometimes life seems to be too busy to cook the way I like to.  So, freezer meals and my crock pot seem to be a perfect answer to that!  Of course this means I have been spending an inordinate time on Pinterest (like I need ...

Sunday Shinanigans

This week seems to have just flown by, I have been making slow progress largely due to the fact that I am trying to many new things at once and there isn't a pattern I am following. I am really just making blocks that I find interesting or challenging, roughly the same size so I can smush them together with my eyes closed tightly, hoping it will magically look like a quilt when I open them!!!

So this weeks challenge was machine based applique, using the blanket stitch button on my machine...I think it will take ...

Pinterest Art Board: Less pinning & More making ART! from ART GIRL

During a recent 'pinning session' I had this idea for a little piece of artwork. I love the colors in it and the marks - it's an homage to my Catalog of Marks. I admit I love pinterest because it's visually pleasing to have all the stuff you find interesting and pretty right there in front of you, lined up in neat boxes of color and shape. One of my favorite boards is my Paper Board where I pin and repin gloriously colorful artworks.

Plus it's great to get ideas or inspiration and motivation for artwork or home ...

Quilt Shows, Expos and Museums by Nadine Ruggles @ Pinterest

Random, short(ish) thoughts from the week in no particular order of importance (though if you’re new ’round here, be warned that I don’t do “short” very well): What’s in a name: I’ve been tossing around the idea of changing the … Continue reading

projects at the new house from Ellyn's Place

Quite a while ago, long before we bought our new house, I pinned this pin on Pinterest. I'm sure I'm not the only person who hates those big giant bathroom mirrors with the ugly light bars above them. Well there were two of those in our new house....
 I showed our handyman the plans I had gotten off the internet and now both bathrooms look like this...
So much better! And once I deck them out with pretty nick backs, a stack of new hand towels... it's going to be great! Have you completed any pinterest projects ...

Patternista from Cheryl Lynch Quilts

I love patterns.  I see patterns  in everything that can be interpreted into a quilt.  Pattern, designs, motifs, whatever you want to call it, is my inspiration.  The patterns of Mexican tiles happily led to lots of quilts and my first book, !Quilt Fiesta!  I see pattern on the ground in bricks and sidewalks.  I see patterns in wrought iron designs.  I see patterns in wallpaper and architectural details. I see pattern in rugs and furniture.  I call it "Organic Inspiration" for my quilts.
 I always have a camera in my purse or bicycle bag to snap these photos and ...
