Bits & Bobs

Scrappy Fabrics

I hope you guys all had a wonderful holiday season!  Today, the girls are both back to school and the lazy days of vacation have come to an end.  I always enjoy having everyone home–Ryan was home most of the time as well.  We celebrated too much, ate too much, slept too much, played way too many games(have any of you played Forbidden Island?–so much fun!), had too much stomach flu–all in all a very successful holiday–minus the stomach flu part smack dab on Christmas day. =)

Instagram love
I’ll be sharing this project with you next week!

I also discovered instagram again.  I had tried it out a couple years ago and never got into it.  But now, it seems like everyone has moved over from flickr and it’s like a lovely reunion of familiar faces over there!  I have thoroughly enjoyed browsing quilty photos and seeing what everyone has been working on over the holidays.  If you are an IG’er I would love to follow you and see what you are up to!

I had hoped to be back tomorrow to share a fun little tutorial with you.  But, this is the view from my front porch this morning:

Snowy Day


Which is not very conducive to good picture taking so I’ll have to wait and see if it brightens up a bit!

I hope your 2014 is off to a great start!–If you have any quilty/sewing goals I would love to hear them.  For me, working on the wip’s is always a goal however–I am a much better starter than I am a finisher!

  • My quilty goal this year? To sew at least one hour every day! I got some sewing done over the holiday and it felt SEW GOOD. 🙂

  • To spend less time on the computer and more time finishing up projects that I’ve started but not finished!

  • I’ve been following you on Feedly, love to follow you on IG, my user name is sandcrab66. I’m presently working on Tula Pink’s city sampler using the Briar Rose collection. Thought it would just take me a month…Ha! It’s going to be at least 6. What’s your user name on IG?

  • My sewing goals ~ so many. I have about 8 quilts that need quilting (one is enormous and going to a professional), have a couple of quilt alongs I want to do and then just random things.
    I got a new sewing machine and just love it, so I want to sew something every day, even if it’s just a little thing.
    I just signed up to follow you ~ I’m elsabean on Instagram.

  • I just signed up to follow you, see you on instragram 🙂

  • I have lots of sew-y goals, but we’ll see how good I will be at keeping them 🙂 I do have a few UFO’s to finish and then I just want to do a bit of selfish sewing this year.

  • Happiest New Year to you to LMS! 😀
    Love the color fabrics and all your posts are a delight.
    I empathize with the snow there. Having a blizzard (literally) here in Cleveland, OH today. Great day to stay in and finish some UFO’s. 🙂
    Keep warm and may this year be even more amazing!!

  • This is a year to hopefully finish a few UFOs myself so wish me luck.

  • After some small success with my goal of 13 {WIP} finishes in 2013, I set a super ambitious goal of 14 finishes in 2014, so we’ll see how that goes. I’m your newest follower on IG. I am prsd4tim2 on IG.

    Have a great 2014!

  • Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas break! Except for the stomach bug…we had that, too! So glad you are active on IG now! I am awful about keeping up with blogs but Instagram has made it much easier to keep in touch!

  • I just joined Instagram too! You can follow me at sarahkrothe . I already follow you 🙂
