I've been reorganizing my photos on my computer and realized that I have a few projects that I meant to share but never did. This is a boxy pouch I made when I went to Sew South
in March! I had thought I would write a blog post specifically about the retreat but. . . you know how it is, right? Anyway, Sew South was wonderful! It was so great to not only meet so many of my blog friends in person (including one of my best blogging friends) but to actually spend the whole weekend with them (and make new friends as well!) Another tidbit about this pouch (made using a leftover piece from this
) is that it is the first time I used interfacing.
We were all sent home from Sew South with plenty of quilty swag including these charm packs. And one of these days I'll actually make the quilt that I planned for using these - yes, one of these days.
My daughters have been baking nonstop this past week. Which is great and um, not so great. After seeing so many baked doughnut recipes, we finally bought a doughnut pan. Does anyone have any good recipes for baked doughnuts to share?
And we finally were able to grow tomatoes - I think it only took 4 years! Not sure what (if anything) we did different this year but it worked and they are delicious.
I regularly read a few (not sewing) blogs that provide links on Fridays to random things from around the web that they wanted to share with their readers. I'm not sure if any of you would be interested but here are a few things that I enjoyed this week:
This salad from Pinch of Yum
(one of my favorite recipe sites) has my family eating and loving kale (well, if you don't count the littlest members of my family.)
This series from A Cup of Jo
about motherhood around the world. I thought it was fascinating and actually read back through the whole series.
Hmm, when I started writing this post, I actually thought I had more links to share. Would that be something you would be interested in (my providing random links to sewing and non-sewing things)? It wouldn't be every Friday (and it wouldn't even necessarily be on a Friday) but I'm wondering if I should start keeping a list of things and then when I have a few, write a post - what do you think? Do any of you do that?
And what is going on in your life this Friday?
Have a great weekend!
