Favorite Things This Week

 

Welcome back for my favorite things this week.  It’s been an eventful week at our house.  P started Pre-K, you know the actual school kind that is FREE.  Hubby and I celebrated being together for 12 years.  Finally, we are researching options for a new garage door.  There goes all the savings of no daycare payment.  How is your week going?

Let’s jump into my list for the week.

Fall

No quite Pumpkin Spice Latte fall, but lots of prep work for Halloween and our decor.  Time to dig into my Pinterest board for ideas.  Plus working on a Halloween quilt for P.  When do you bust out your fall decor?  Lots of stores already have theirs out.

Take me back to Cooperstown

If you want a jumpstart on fall projects, here is an easy tutorial for a Fall Fabric Wreath.

I have been working on some big projects at work this week.  While doing so I’ve been listening to music and the occasional video.  Prepare to laugh and feel all kinds of gushiness.

Speaking of fall, this had me cracking up.  So many giggles.

Sewing & Quilting

A variation on a string block is a go to for me.  Cluck Cluck Sew has the Diagonal Strip Quilt tutorial on her blog.  She finally finished her quilt.  She touches on being paralyzed by the fear of finishing it.  Do you ever feel that way?

I am digging these improv stripes from Debbie at A Quilter’s Table.  Wish I had some more time to play along right now.  Are you participating?

Life

I love planning.  We use a family calendar, but maybe it’s time for me to bring back a paper planner.  There are some good benefits discussed here.  Do you have any suggestions or favorites?

We are going to sneak away for a couple of days this weekend.
