The Golden Hen Pincushion Pattern and Giveaway from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Golden Hen pincushion

I just finished updating one of the first three patterns I wrote. The Golden Hen pattern that I originally created as a baby rattle is now available as a pincushion. Oh my goodness, it feels so good to get something off of my list of things to do!! I love these hens and they are so much fun to make. I am literally smiling the whole time I make them because they are so stinking cute. Here at Casa de DEMOO, I am working on a flock of them. I will be listing them as finished goods in my Etsy ...

Have you noticed wool is on bolts in quilt shops? I am used to seeing small pieces of it that cost almost as much as a yard of fabric, but not whole bolts of wool. How awesome is that?!

I love using it for pin cushions and I used it in this Sugar and Spice Halloween Table Runner.

Meal Planning Ideas & Download from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

So you went to the grocery store. Spent a crapload of money . . . Now what? Or maybe you haven’t gone yet because you don’t know what to buy. Well I hope to answer some of those questions here with a little bit of meal planning.

Yes, we are into our second week of the coronavirus craze. Last week around Wednesday, I decided to go to the grocery store. I went to Albertsons and they were almost out of toilet paper. There might have been 7 packs left and, lucky for me, it was the 1 ply. Now, that is ...

Planning the next year from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Ready or not, it’s 2020. For the past two weeks, my mind has been simmering on 2019. Recalling the good, the bad, and the lovely. I have been thinking about what I did and how I feel about it. My conclusion is… it was a good year. My achievements were more than I could imagine. I possibly took on more than I should have, but I got through it and I am back for more. The big thing I learned this year is how important planning the next year is; working ahead is essential.
