Thoughtful Thursday

On Thursdays, I will post a few of things that I have been thinking about. This includes projects that I thinking of creating, thoughts about life and family and just general get-it-out-there-and-out-of-my-head ramblings.

I am....

... still missing my coworker! Poor thing will probably be out until next week. I need her at work to keep me sane!

... worried about my little nephew. He had a seizure on Tuesday and was released today. At this time I am unsure what is wrong. (Say a prayer for the little tike.)

The Perfect Baby Gift

A couple of years ago I stumbled across this awesome book at my local public library. It was filled with simple fun baby gift ideas. Today I couldn't tell you the title of that book. I did end up purchasing a copy during a library sale fundraiser but haven't a clue where that book is now. Hopefully I will now be able to find the book!! I'm also certain it is storage with the rest of my crafting books.

But that's off topic. Every time someone I know is pregnant or has a baby I make the same baby quilt. The I found in that book. It is super simple to make, uses limited fabrics and comes together quickly. 

Wanna know how to make this wonderfully easy gift? You're in luck! One of my co-workers down the hall just had a little boy with his wife and I just haven't had time to make their gift until now!

... happy today. Why? Because today will be a good day!

Getting Crafty...

I had every intention to have a fun, fabulous post and finish to post today but alas I do not!

Why you may ask??

Simple... I did not sew this weekend! Instead, I got CRAFTY!! :)

My First Sale!

Over the last week or so I've been working off and on on a sweet baby quilt for my coworker who recently became a grandmother. I love the way that the quilt came out. So simple but modern and sweet.
Excuse the Instagram picture! It's the only one I had! :)

... grateful for my wonderful students! They make me smile in every class!

Quilting Class

I have never taken a formal quilting class. I had home economics in junior high and high school. So I learned the basics of sewing and cutting and such but not on quilting.

I learned to quilt by reading books, reading blogs and watching YouTube videos. I have probably read every quilting book in my parish library!

Using this collection of information I have started my road to quilting. I am still a little uncomfortable in a group of quilters.

But that's about to change!

I am....


... thinking that the easiest way to cripple the South is to make it snow. I just spent the last two hours at work alternately working and gazing out the window watching flurries fall.

... thinking that I am way too Southern for this snow to keep falling! I hate being cold but can deal with it better than being hot! Which is to say that I need the temperature to stay at 70*F so that I can be comfortable.

Awesome Deal!

I love Groupon! Maybe a bit too much. It is so easy to click on these deals!

I don't have the time now but Groupon currently has an awesome deal on a My Publisher book!

I love My Publisher since you can work offline even if you do have to download the software. Of course, I have a soft spot for it as I made my wedding album with them.

Happy Digital Scrapbooking!! :)

My First Blog Post....

... creative title, I know!


I never thought I would be one of those people with a blog. I love to read other people's blogs but I definitely didn't think that anything that I could write would be worth anyone's time. Why should it?
