It’s Friday yall!!!  Time for a BLT!!! 

BLOG

In my never-ending search to improve my skills I stumbled over this little gem on Pinterest.  This blog is so inspiring I don’t even know where to begin.  Actually I do.  My friend Kim, asked if I’ve been making any mini quilts, coasters, etc on any of my other sewing machines and the truth is no.  For some reason, every now and then I need someone to point out the obvious.  What a great idea! I can use my machines, learn new quilt blocks, improve my skills and not feel so guilty about having all my beauties just sitting around. 

The thing that caught my eye about Charise Creates are her paper pieced blocks.  I’m in love and have to learn immediately how do it.  Thankfully she offers a wonderful tutorial on her blog and references some great resources.  Hooray!!!!  The timing couldn’t be better. Kira starts nursery school next week and I’m going to have some extra time on my hands.  Win Win!!!

So go visit Charise Creates and be inspired.

LOVE IT

Another reason I love September and the fall are apples.  Baked, Pies, Crisps, and now Cake!  Oh yes!!

TUTORIAL

I just realized you’re getting 2 for the price of 1 in this BLT.  This is another great little project I can work on with another machine.  Maybe my newest after she’s cleaned up.    The tutorial looks super easy and more sharpening on the skills.

These would also make great holiday gifts.  I’m aiming for much simpler and all hand-made this year.  There’s that road to hell….just waiting for me.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. 

A side note: I’m in the process of blog house keeping so there will be some “in with the new and fresh” and “out with the stale and boring” (more like no longer necessary).  I’m even thinking of changing the entire look to this (my friend Sara is amazing and her blog is beautiful)  I’d love to know what you think? 

Again, have a great weekend!!!
