A Little of This, A Little of That: Holiday Edition

I've got a few little things I want to share with you, so I thought I'd throw them together in one big post.

Last month I took the girls to the Wee Faerie Village exhibit at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, Connecticut. It was fantastic. There were 33 different faerie houses scattered throughout the museum grounds. The girls loved it. Every house was designed and built by a different artist, so they were all unique. This one was by far my favorite...

Next up, Point of View should be happening this Friday, but we've decided to hold off until Friday, December 7th. This month's theme is "Ornaments", and I'm more than a little excited to share my project this month. I even wrote a tutorial for it! And guess what else? Next Monday (November 26th) I'm guest posting as part of Cindy's Holiday Bake, Craft and Sew Along over at Skip to my Lou, so I've got a tutorial to share for that as well. I haven't written a tutorial in seven months, and now you get two within two weeks of each other :)

In other news, I've decided not to host Haul Out the Holly this year :( I went back and forth about it... As much as I love doing it, it really is a lot of work to put together a three week series. And since I've taken a step back from the blog, I just decided that it didn't make sense for me to do it this year. I'm not ruling it out for next year, though :)

Some info for your holiday sewing: Michelle Patterns is having a "DIY for the Holidays" sale right now...


All patterns are only $5.00. Most of her projects can be finished in 1-3 hours, so they are perfect for making gifts for the holidays. I recently purchased the Pocket Clutch and Keychain Clutch patterns. I'm hoping to get a few put together for gift giving this year. The sale ends November 25th. Check it out HERE.

Also, if you're looking for a gift for yourself the sewists in your life, AccuQuilt has some great holiday deals all this week leading into Cyber Monday...


I'll finish with some big news in our house... we have our first loose tooth! I shared a roundup of tooth fairy pillow ideas a little over a year ago, and the time has finally come. I ended up going my own way with the pillow that I made, and it turned out so cute. I'll be sharing soon.

Happy Thanksgiving!
