Felt Circle Pillow and Someday Crafts

This little felt-circle pillow was my weekend project. I LOVE how it came together. And so much faster than I thought. Today I’m guest blogging over at Someday Crafts and sharing the tutorial to make your very own! And it’s even easier than it looks!

And it looks great with the Snowflake felt pillow from last year.

If you haven’t visited the Someday Crafts blog, you must go. Michelle started her blog as a way to save great crafting tutorials to make “someday”. The great thing is she does all the work finding creative stuff and shares it all in one place! She is a great resource. I met Michelle last summer. She is one of the funniest and most genuinely kind people I’ve met. I love meeting cool people. Go visit her!

A happy weekend

 A busy, happy, family weekend around here. We’ve been having an great time with my husband’s family in town from Maryland.  My mother-in-law made 9 pies! YUM. And my husband’s brined turkey was a home run. Oh my goodness. I am officially declaring him responsible for Thanksgiving turkey for the rest of his life.

I’ve also been working on my project. I’ll have it ready to share on Monday.

Also, many thanks to We All Sew for their DofaQuilter shoutout this week. Have you visited WeAllSew.com? A great sewing resource sponsored by Bernina. My machine is a 30+ year-old Bernina and I LOVE it. Totally no-frills, but a heavy-duty work horse. We’re a good pair.

A Thankful Heart

From my back porch last week
“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, 
but the parent of all other virtues.”
               –Cicero, Roman philosopher

“A thankful heart is a happy heart.”
– Junior Asparagus, the Veggie Tales

Happy Thanksgiving from Utah.
