Fabric Finds

Oh Wow.  Yesterday was a fabric jackpot at SAS Fabrics in Tucson.  This is the kind of store where you need to be prepared to dig in bins of fabric to find good deals.  I went to the $3.99 per yard bin and got tons of great stuff.  Here are some of my favs below.

First project - recovering a pillow in this cute fabric. 

Next up - a sewing workshop next week where I will make this reversible bag 
(with different fabric).

Thanksgiving Round-up

I am loving this long weekend. Waking up today with no idea what day it is was pretty wonderful.

Our Thanksgiving day was a great one.  The day started with a 5K race and afterwards  we enjoyed shopping for last minute items at Trader Joe's even though they were closed (the perks!).  Scott cooked a wonderful Thanksgiving meal for us and I worked on cookies and pies.  Friends came over for drinks and desserts after our dinner.

 An easy and yummy recipe for chocolate chip pumpkin cookies can be found here.  I made without the icing and they are so GOOD! 

Happy Thanksgiving and Long Weekend!

Pocket Pocket...

Pocket-Sized Stories. My newest favorite site. Maybe ever. Visit it. Now.


Cheverons - check. Gallery wall - check. Typography art - check. I know, so many design cliches.
Whatevs - I still dig it.
Add a cocktail and a good book to the mix and I may never leave.

Tucson Love found here- Iron Board Collective
I love reading about her shopping finds...

If I had a choice...

If I lived in this hotness, hopefully I wouldn't have to work (trust fund please materialize) - but if I did have to work, I would want it to be here, in this room, with a dog at my feet. Boom.
