Shop Update | The Small One

I finally got around to adding a few more things to the shop this weekend. 

Despite the update being small (Only a few things) I am really excited of what is to come. 

I am working on a small stock of warm hats for the winter (perfect for Christmas gifts!!) and with some new fabric and zippers coming in I am hoping to get some bigger bags for the shop soon too!

None the less, here is a little look at one of my favorite prints I got some Fridays Off, the fabric store that I get 99% of my fabric from. 🙂

^ Look at how pretty our Rainbow Sock Yarn looks in this bag all knitted up!!


My Favorite Things | August 2018 | Summertime Fun!

August and I have a love hate relationship. Growing up it meant super hot days in the fields bringing in hay, and it wasn’t all that much fun. 

It also is my birthday month, which meant one day of the month I DIDN’T have to do chores and we got to go to the beach and eat cake if the weather was nice. 

So, in celebration of my birthday month (and not having to haul hay anymore!) I am sharing my absolute favorite things to eat, drink and make on my birthday!

I LOVE handmade baskets and I have a similar project ready to make and  I can’t wait!


Raw Carrot Cake Bites
Mmmm I love carrot cake. This was a tasty alternative to the sugar junk filled ones you normally find recipes for!
Have fun this summer with these budget-friendly DIY Summer projects.
I like filling my summer with fun little projects here and there. This is a great way to get the creative juices flowing or for a quick idea to something you already have in mind!
How to Make Woven Wish Bracelets
My daughter was given an adorable friendship bracelet making kit for her birthday so we have really enjoyed spending part of our summer doing that. Even though she’s still quite young, it was nice to make them, brought back memories of when I was a little girl!

My Favorite Things| June 2018 | Birthday Edition

If you have kids you’ll understand both the excitement and frustration of hosting a birthday party for your little ones.

Thankfully with only one kid, this only happens once per year and as a result, we usually go all out for her big day!

June is her birthday month so I thought I would share some of my inspiration! She LOVES Mario and so we walked into this thinking that was what we were going to do. Last minute though, she changed her mind and decided for no theme at all and so we made a simple cake for her with some fun regular birthday decorations. But none-the-less, I had fun planning a Mario party for her.

In the end she got this pretty cake, it was chocolate and vanilla on the inside and it tasted amazing. Nothing fancy, but perfectly lovely and she loved it (which is all that matters right?).

Until next time!

Keep Stitching!

My Favorite Things | May 2018 | Welcome Summer!

Well hello there summer! It feels as if we have skipped spring completely and went right to sweltering hot summer!

For those of you that know me, know I dislike the heat. I am a winter loving gal through and through. However the only thing in the summer I look forward to is gardening. I love to spend my days outside working on my beautiful vegetable and berry gardens.

So this months favorites 100% reflect that love of gardening, summer and all things flora and fauna.

Enjoy!
