Wow, I cannot believe it has been two months since my last blog! Where does the time go? Winter is fast approaching and I am working hard on Christmas projects. There are so many things on my to-make list and I hope I can get them all done!

Here are some things I found recently, some things I have been drooling over and some things I have been thinking about:

I took a trip to California to visit my family in September and found this great vintage fabic at a thrift store. Its so kitsch and so much fun!



It might just be some of my favorite fabric I have ever come across. I found quite a bit, which is good. Ever find only a little bit of great fabric and never want to use it?

I also found these in a thrift store in town. Believe it or not I have been searching for a set like this for a couple of years now.

Wooden spoon and fork

My great-grandmother had a set similar to it and I remember playing with them when I was a little girl. I haven't decided if I am going to paint/re-finish them yet. What do you think about them in black?

I have been drooling over quilting in general and wishing I had the time to devote to learning how. I plan on taking some classes after Christmas.

Audrie over at Blue is Bleu is a great inspiration to me. Her quilts are so creative and whimsical. I just love her style!

I have been thinking a lot about blogging some tutorials and recipes of things that I have made. I have yet to do it, but I am at least thinking in that direction.

I am also planning on blogging on a more consistent basis. I found these awesome printable Blog Topic Lists through One Pretty Thing. Here is the link to the free download at Vale Design.

Hopefully these will help me get back on track!
