  1. Happy Friday! What fall wreath are you making? I will be making a burlap one soon for my front door, but I don't have the burlap yet. This weekend I plan on finalizing the design plan for my quilt that I'm starting, making a tooth fairy pillow for my daughter, and sewing the two Christmas garlands that have been cut for a year (yikes). One of the garlands is a ruffled felt one, and the other is paper circles punched from scrapbook paper that will be stitched into a long strand.

    Post some photos for us when you're done with your weekend projects!

  2. How fun! I don't have any crafty plans this weekend...does painting my mudroom and bathroom count? ;-) I am doing homemade Christmas gifts this year...I'm really excited about it! So far, I've made apple butter. Lovin' your blog, Jaime!

  3. I have some quilt blocks to finish up... I want to sew up the skinny jeans I cut out a few weeks ago (had a baby just after cutting them so that's been a happy sewing distraction)... but it's also thanksgiving here - so I'm not sure how much I'll get done between 2 kids and gatherings.

  18. I'm hoping to get some crochet Christmas gifts made this weekend. I started my Christmas shopping last week and now I'm on a roll I'm almost halfway done! So exciting. I also need to make my fall wreath. I bought all the supplies weeks ago and just haven't taken the time to sit down and make it. I'm going to try making a yarn wreath. What kind are you making?

  19. Tomorrow, finally, I'm attending a fair, selling stuff from my shop! If everything goes as planned, I'll have to make many many new things for the shop tomorrow night such as pillows and pennants. Maybe some birthday cards as well. Have a great week end!
