Pin It Weekly #332 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

 It's Weekly time! Here's hoping that you're having a fabulous week. I've been crafting. That's all. Crafting. And enjoying every minute. I thought I'd share some of the ideas that I've been toying with. I haven't made them all, but I'm hoping that the next week or so will see most of them complete. 

I really want to paint a mason jar!

 Who doesn't love wooden candy corn?!

And because I've gone a little crazy with the door hangers. 

 Hopefully I'll finish the door hangers that are waiting ...

Pin It Weekly # 330 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


The weather has been quite blue/blah and gray/icky since the hurricane. We absolutely can't trust the sky. However, the temperatures make up for that. We absolutely CAN trust the temps. 

Hand Painted Oil Painting Abstract Indigo Wall with Stretched Frame 7 Wall Arts® – CAD $ 119.53

So I've been feeling a little gray and blah. I did load a quilt top on the long-arm and I've gotten in the groove. I had forgotten I had this top. It was in the bin waiting a turn. Apparently, there's no rhyme or reason to taking turns in my world. This is neither the oldest or the newest in the bin. So... 


But ...

Check out this girl's Flickr page.... so much beautiful sewing!!
Have I told you that I'm really bad at math? Here's one example of many, embarrassing many: I always check to see what number the next PIW is before actually typing in the number. Sometimes I double check. About six weeks ago I did that. Well, I did something.
Design Trend: Neutral Walls with Pops of Bold Color - Modern Parents Messy Kids
I thought it was check the number and add one. Then I proceeded to number the next PIW by skipping a slew of numbers. I went from the end of the 310s to the 330s. How does something like that happen? I assume it the same way I can ...

Welcome back! It's Pinterest time. It has gotten too hot in Louisiana to sit out-of-doors. I managed a few minutes in the shade while a hot breeze and a cool drink kept me and the birds company. 

Bird Sounds and Songs of the Mourning Dove | The Old Farmer's Almanac

How the doves have the energy to fuss over the same feeder is beyond me. Of course, watching them peaked my interest in whether I had mourning doves on my bird board. I did not. So far as I could find anyway. So I searched out a few doves to pin.

Pin It Weekly #337 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

This almost-weekly post started out as Pin It Wednesday. 

Lynette Anderson Designs: Festival of Quilts 2014...

Wednesday was soon changed to Weekly simply because I couldn't keep up with weekdays and also because I couldn't pull off a regular thing. And that was when I worked. How does one miss "Hump Day"? One sees over a hundred teenagers and attempts to impart knowledge to said teens. 

Retirement came along (finally), and I know when it's Sunday. 

I find this one intriguing - is it old?  New?

Then Coronavirus came calling, and even Sunday is not so reliable. So when PIW arrives at the end of the week, it should come as no surprise to ...

Beautiful Bird House Designs You Will Fall in Love with (13)

Birds and butterflies and bats, oh my! Houses and houses and houses... 

It will always be eight o'clock!

Wow! The Best Bird Feeders of Pinterest - Cate's Garden

Bee Hotel B&B - Red Candy

It's a birdhouse now, but it would make a great Smithy and Workshop if it was a little bigger.

Great use of tree stump. Just make sure you put bird houses and feeders at least 5 -6 feet above the ground. Otherwise they are easy prey for cats and other predators. :)

Acquire excellent tips on "modern abstract art painting". They are readily available for you on our website. #modernabstractartpainting

Welcome to PIW! 
My most recent pins have been additions to the "mixed, media" board.
Italian collage and the garden of lovers, caterina giglio La Dolce Vita

by dailypoetics, via Flickr great use of a collaged ground with areas highlighted using the gesso.

Crossings - Strummel's work is inspirational.  I can learn a lot from her.

These pins are from Susan Camata. I didn't translate, but I think we can all figure out what she likes, especially considering that this is one of eight sewing boards.

And these are from Dawn Hunton's "floral applique" board. Talk about inspiring!

Hahaha, how do you like that honest title? First there was that depressive episode, then Rich and I took my sister to Houston to a doctor's appointment, and now we have what must be the flu. I'm not sure. But before you ask--yes, we both got the flu shots this year. Have you? Let's Pinterest, shall we?

Hey Pinners! Let's meet new followers:
Barbara Wilson has a board called "color palettes" that proved to be interesting.

Classic - I like this for a home setting especially, but would be pretty for winter or fall nature in Austin as well. I'd pick the three colors to the left!

 Color combination, color pallets, color palettes, color scheme, color inspiration.

Marcin Piesocki's board "Polubione," which means your likes, has pins of some of the most beautiful antiques, architectural examples, and machines.

Sandra Gentry  has 64 pins on rug hooking, something I don't think I've ever passed along to you, so here you are.

Pin It Weekly #299 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Wow! Did you see that number up there? 299! That means 300 by the end of the year. Are you impressed?

This game started way back in 2012. It was pretty sporadic at first. The idea was fun, though and eventually it worked itself into Pin It Weekly. I'm do a much better job of that "weekly" thinking, but admittedly I miss the occasional week. Sorry about those missed opportunities. But let's not dwell on them, okay? Instead let's dwell on the seven years. Seven years!

LOVE this book! Read it twice. Amazing storytelling, attention to detail and you learn some interesting things. I have read many of Ken Follett's books and enjoyed all of them.

Pin It Weekly time! Last week we met a couple of new followers. Let's meet a few more....

First a hello to Donna Farquhar. She has over 400 pins on vintage fashion ideas from patterns to photos. I'll have to go back for a visit, she's given me an idea for another board... 'cause, you know, 180 would not suffice.  

 dress used in The Age of Innocence which is set in the 1870s. This could also be considered a “princess line” dress.

Leona Hawker has some beautiful crochet and lace on one of her boards. Here are a few that have been turned into Christmas ornaments.
