Hello, friends, and happy Saturday! Well, I made it through Thanksgiving and have been enjoying not having to cook after so much work Wednesday and Thursday–totally worth it, but, well, it’s nice to put up my feet now! I’m sharing today’s Saturday Seven 261: Lifestyle & More for Quilters with lots of fun ideas for your weekend. I’ve also got a few of my favorite things to share today–enjoy!
Saturday Seven 261: Lifestyle & More for Quilters
I believe practicing gratitude is one of the most healing things we can do–so I loved this “20 Little Attitudes of Gratitude List.” And this piece on “How the Feeling of Pointlessness Can Derail Us” (I’ve definitely felt that way before) was very good. Finally, this list of “10 Things You Can Do this Week Instead of Online Shopping” is a good list!
Looking for a festive holiday appetizer? This Snowman Cheese Ball is adorable. Here is a good Turkey Pot Pie recipe if you’re wondering what to do with leftover turkey. And just for fun–add a festive touch to your Sparkling Apple Cider with this fun Pomegranate Apple Cider Mocktail recipe. And if you’re looking for some simple meal solutions–get $35 off your first order with Home Chef using my code.
3. Quilt + Sew
This Mini Tree Skirt Tutorial from Fat Quarter Shop is super fun! These Scrappy Coasters would make a fun gift–plus you can use the smallest of scraps for them! And these Sketch Stitched Ornaments are also a quick sew! Finally, the Fat Quarter Shop Simply Stars Quilt Along just started–find the book, fabric requirements, and first week’s PDF here!
I know I shared this cookbook before–but I absolutely love it! We made the Green Bean Casserole and the Make-Ahead Gravy this week and they were both incredible. I can’t wait to try more recipes! Tranquility by Tuesday is the perfect gift for you or anyone you know who needs a little less stress. I’m on year two of this List a Day Journal–it’s fun to see the changes each year. It would also make a terrific gift.
5. Black Friday Weekend Sales
First, my own Black Friday Weekend sale is going on now. Use this link or the code Grateful2022 for 20% off of everything in the shop. And don’t forget to stop by Fat Quarter Shop this weekend–their 20% off Black Friday sale is good through midnight tonight. And they have so many good deals going on with more to come on Monday!
6. A Few of my Favorite Things–‘Tis the Season!
I’ve been using this Vitamin C Serum for about 9 months now and absolutely love it (a little goes a long way–2-3 drops every morning)! These Waffle Terry Towels are my absolute favorites. I’m loving this book light so I can read at night–it would make a great gift, too! And this Electric Egg Cooker is a game changer–we love it so much! Finally, I use Stitch Fix to do most of my shopping these days–so nice to not have to leave the house! And get a $25 credit on your first purchase using my link here.
