Blinds too long

When we moved into this house and we were setting up the girls’ bedrooms, one of the first things we noticed was how crazy long the blinds were. My mom was here, and since she is in the window covering business she knows a thing or two (or twenty) on safety regulations for window treatments with cords. Her conclusion: these are not safe blinds. We’re pretty sure the house was once a foreclosure, then purchased by an investor, and then fixed up on a tight budget. The blinds [...]

Scrappy HST Quilt Top

I’m so glad it is Friday! The perfect day to finish up a quilt, right? Like this scrappy HST quilt top that has been done for a while now. I went through my scrap bucket back in September and found all my pieces that were big enough to run through my AccuQuilt Go! Baby, and I churned out this stack of HST’s (Warning: crappy Instagram pictures ahead):

Then I put them aside, and planned on getting [...]

Chicken with Basil Cream Sauce Recipe

My poor family has suffered through many a dinner disaster, and each time I get more and more disheartened, which makes me less likely to make dinner. We ate out a LOT last year.

Now that we live in a town that [...]

Zippy Top Pattern by See Kate Sew and Sewn by The Crafty Cupboard

Oh, Zippy Top. Finally, we’re together!! Can I just say, in full honesty, that I love NOT being pregnant? Some people love pregnancy days. I am not one of those people. I love, love, love the little adorable human beings that are the end result of a pregnancy but getting to the end is not my favorite. I actually sewed up this Zippy Top for ME before I even had my sweet baby because I was [...]
