Many things

Over at Posie’s place I saw the cutest, simplest idea for embroidery hoops and all this gorgeous fabric we are all collecting.

So I made my own.


Now if only I had her gorgeous green walls and perfect house. sigh. Alas I live in a tiny house just so I can afford to stay in SB. Such is the life when you want to live in paradise. Tracy & I scoured Craft Essentials for the mix of fabrics to go together, this is all the hoops I had on hand so that is what got done late last night. I will do a whole wall of them, floor to ceiling, right there. Probably a good dozen or so. We have 11 fabrics plus there were plenty more that we wanted. It’s so simple yet you get to use the art of the fabric itself.

I also started more granny squares, just for shits & giggles this time. I had 3 balls of Noro Silk Garden color 84 that I didn’t know what to do with. What else, granny squares! They are on the brain lately.


That is a pretty accurate photo but it’s hard to get a good picture of reds inside with superhaze outside. I am going to go ahead & use 13 balls (10 of which I have coming from ebay) to make myself a simple granny square afghan. I love them. It will be tonal and that just makes me ridiculously happy!

I also found Tyler some orange, yes orange, Chuck’s at Ross last night to go with his black ones. This boy loves his orange!

Um…he loves them. Who wouldn’t really?

  1. That is such a cool idea!
    And I love your fabric pieces. What a great way to display them in your home.
    Also love the orange shoes. I think Orange may be my second favorite color. It’s so cheery. It’s also my little sister’s favorite. She can’t get enough of it either.

  3. And I was just there again with the kids. 2 more pair of converse hi-tops (green for Sadie, white w/ blue for Trevor) & 2 bathing suits a piece. Nice shopping trip out of the way.
