Hanging Kitchen Towel Easy Tutorial

Check out this Hanging Kitchen Towel Easy Tutorial and make a few in one afternoon. Jazz up your kitchen decor or gift them to family and friends!

I love kitchen towels made with flour sacks – they are very absorbent, easy to clean, and very durable. Some of the ones I use have been in my kitchen for decades!

I took some photos as I went ...

While Julia Was Away, The Roosters Did Play from Needle and Foot

Remember the chicks Julia raised last fall in the laundry room? Well two of the four turned out to be roosters, Pete and Jack. This was somewhat disappointing as that obviously reduced the number of eggs we thought we would be getting. However they were very handsome birds and we got over our disappointment. Then we went up to Washington to celebrate the girl’s birthdays and those naughty roosters had a party of sorts.

When we left, the roosters were about five months old. We thought this was still young that they wouldn’t be fertilizing eggs yet. Oh ...

My Favorite Quilty Patterns For The Holidays from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Welcome back to the blog, fabric lovers!

As you know, I love talking about the latest collections, their inspiration, and all the lovely projects made with them! Over the years, I’ve been really lucky to witness some amazing projects done with our fabrics, and I still remember the first lookbook ever, come together! Since then, I’ve seen over 70 lookbooks (wow has time flew by)!

Sewing Projects for a Full Heart (and Bobbin)! from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

When someone is covered in a cozy, warm quilt, they are reminded that someone sat at a sewing machine for hours, carefully piecing and stitching, with them in mind. A handmade table runner sitting on the family dining table shows a loving home to all who feast there. To be gifted a wall hanging is a reminder that they are loved by its maker.

Valentine’s day is one of the best holidays to make for because it’s about love and we LOVE to make! Here are some sweet as pie project ideas:
