On Fridays (except for the weeks I forget…sorry about that), I recap some fantastic finds from around the web.

great Fabric: I’m not 100% sure what I would do with this collection by Quilting Treasures, but it sure brings back memories growing up. We had a huge collection of these Little Golden Books and these fabrics are adorable.

to whet your Appetite: Valentine’s Day is next week and I’m making this snack mix to add as a Valentine’s Day surprise to their lunchboxes.

be Natural and Neat (as in organized):  My original white board idea from my 31days isn’t really working out, I wonder if this might work better?

a Tutorial to do: I pulled out another tee yesterday that is really in need of a facelift. This might be a good tutorial to make that transformation happen

on Aimee’s to do list (that’s me by the way): really, the list is too long.  February is almost over though and I still haven’t started on my February Stitch Along via the feeling stitchy blog. I think I finally figured out my design…just have to get started now!

something to Sew: this week I really need to get these ottomans covered (at least one of them)

oh, to Travel: where we are spending our next Friday afternoon learning about salamanders

Inspirational: oh Pinterest…if there is anything I love it is all the wonderful quotes you can find. This one is on my to stitch asap list.

Cute: some days I wish I could just doodle and draw up stuff like this…so cute

Welcome back to Fantastic Fridays!

On Friday’s I round out the week sharing fantastic things I’ve come across on the web.

great Fabric: I’ve got 3 collections I would love to order: 1. rashida colemanJessica Swift, and Sparky & Marie, but what I really want is this pack from Aneela Hoey. It would make the most awesome quilt!

to whet your Appetite: a few things I have on the docket to try next week: pita bread from the bread machine, crumpets and these muffins.

be Natural: our favorite place lately…Tremont. If you live anywhere around the Smokies, this is a fabulous place to get involved. I’m forever amazed and impressed at the work they do and the work they do in educating youngsters about the great outdoors.

a Tutorial to do: I made a little rag doll for a friend this week and this is the tutorial I used for the yarn hair. It was super easy. More on the doll next week.

on Aimee’s to do list (that’s me by the way): Organizing my fabric and craft area…ugg! I would LOVE to make these baskets!

something to Sew: on the table right now is this embroidery for a client…always fun, but always daunting

oh, to Travel: we are celebrating our 15th this year and hoping to spend it here

Inspirational: the book my mom keeps getting me to read

Cute: a fishy hairbow tutorial. If only my daughter would actually wear them, I would try to make them. Alas…
