After finishing up a large quilt for a magazine, I’ve been working on lots of small projects. My most favorite recent finish is my Bucket List Table Topper pictured above in our Bountiful Blooms fabrics. I also made the Sunnyside Table Runner pictured at the top of the post and have been working on potholders including a new design to share with you.
Five Things I’m Loving Right Now
Here are the top five things I’m loving right now:
- First, I’m super excited that our Bountiful Blooms collection is now shipping. It’s the perfect time of year to sew with this gorgeous bright fall palette, too!
- I mentioned recently that I’m loving my Kindle Paperwhite. And the first book I read on it was this one by Ann Patchett.
- I got a new travel bag for toiletries and cosmetics and absolutely love it. The design is wonderful, and the price is terrific. I can hardly wait to take a trip. Chelsi saw it and immediately ordered one too!
- Summer rain! We had some in every month this summer, and it was so nice to have cooler temperatures and the much-needed water. After a few recent summers with little rain, this was truly a blessing!
- I’ve also been using these laundry detergent sheets and have been really happy with them. I do use three for larger loads and two for regular loads.
