Favorite Things This Week

Hello October and all your fall splendor.  Too bad in Indianapolis it’s been hot.  We had to turn the AC back on the other night.  That’s a minor thing in life though.  It’s been a tough week for many people I know.  The US had another (can’t believe how often in happens) mass shooting and Rock legend Tom Petty passed away.  Earlier this week I took some time off from social media and any media to just enjoy time as a family.  It doesn’t make Las Vegas easier to process, but helped me not get consumed by all of the coverage.  The Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild is putting together a drive for blocks, fabric, quilts, etc to be given to victims and first responders.  You can find out more here, deadline is November 15th

This week, let’s bring something positive into everyone’s week.

Cathedrals in a Twitter battle for World Architecture Day.  There are stunning photos in the replies

Sewing & Quilting

Shruti Dandaker walks through her process when she was in Inspiration Overload.  Great read on refining and figuring out a path forward.  Now is the perfect time to focus on that as we head into setting goals for 2018.

Shopping Handmade

These tennis rackets by Danielle Clough are stunning.  Pop over to read a bit more.

Fountain Alley Body Care is a wonderful shop we found during Girl’s Weekend to Madison.  I bought a few soaps and a mask.  They smell lovely and use natural products.

Potholders are back in my Etsy shop.  More will be added soon.  They make a great gift.

Life

The love of football runs deep at my house.  Not quite this deep, but impressive dress change by one bride to surprise her dad.

Two favorite movies in the Nagel household are Mean Girls and The Devil Wears Prada.  October 3rd was this week and the internet went a little crazy.  Did you do there was a thing as #meangirlsday?  Me either, but now I may need to celebrate.  It’s so fetch.  Ha!  I found this article about some unknown facts on The Devil Wears Prada.  Hubby and I enjoyed the read.

Great American Beer Festival is happening this week.  It’s on my bucket list of items.  Have you ever gone?  My Twitter and Facebook are full of posts from friends in the industry.

 

I started the weekly favorites to share a little more about me.  Sewing and quilting may seem boring to most people.  There is so much more to my life that these posts are a glimpse into all the other things that encompass my weeks.  The post may contain affiliate links.  If you may a purchase from a link, I may receive a small compensation.

  1. Greetings from Danville! Do you know of any good quilt groups a person can try? I am a recent transplant from Evansville, and had to leave my knitting group behind. Now I am back to quilting and have yet to find a group up here. Love that Cathedral.

    1. Hi from Indy. What kind of quilting do you enjoy? There are a variety of groups around Central Indiana. I’m a founder and member of the Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild. It’s a wonderful group of creative sewists that are non judgmental and supportive. Check us out on Facebook. Quilter’s Guild of Indianapolis is a big group that has smaller bees in the area as well.
