I hope you’ll enjoy today’s sampling.
Saturday Seven 115 Inspiration for Quilters
1. Feed Your Spirit
I enjoyed this article on “The Honest Guide to Mindfulness.” And from this interview with Joanna Gaines...the final two paragraphs contain some of the best advice I’ve read lately…so many good ideas so that we can move forward with our dreams. Finally, terrific ideas on how “You Absolutely Can Tackle the Big Things You’ve Been Avoiding.“
2. Good Eats
Crepes are such a fun thing to make for Valentines. Find the Easiest Crepe Recipe here. And for fun…how about this Valentine’s Hot Chocolate Bar! This cake recipe looks sooo good!
Books this week definitely have a homemaking theme…we’re hoping to finish up painting, flooring, and cleaning soon! So of course this Organizing Manual has been on the top of my book pile for a couple of weeks. And brand new is Farmhouse Fresh: Clever Creations for 16″ Toweling with small projects by fellow Moda designer Jenelle Kent. Find kitchen accessories, bags, pillows and more!
4. Quilt & Sew
Here is a fun roundup of Scrap Quilt Tutorials. And here is a great tutorial for a fabric envelope…perfect for Valentine’s! And if you still haven’t stocked up on Summer Sweet fabrics…I still have some pre-cuts in the shop here!
5. Home Organization
Tips for Cleaning and Organizing a Refrigerator and Freezer are in this article. And this article has so many ideas on how to start the home organization process.
Find “Six Simple Secrets for a Less Cluttered Home” here. Keep from feeling distracted with some of these tips. I also liked this article on “8 Ways to Get Rid of Clutter and Get Your Life Back.” Finally, here are some interesting thoughts on making more time in our lives.
