If you haven’t checked out this amazing show do yourself a favor and go take a watch. My kids love this show as much as my husband and I. A Chef’s Life reminds me of my upbringing on a farm in rural north Florida which brings up such sweet memories of my childhood.


If you haven’t left a review on iTunes for the podcast please pop over and do that for me, please. It helps others find the show.

I chatted about this amazing website, Gimme Some Oven! An amazing resource for recipes that are always tasty and yummy. I made these biscuits and my Southern Grandma would approve of these as a healthy version of her traditional lard recipe for sure.

And I chatted about wanting to know if you have a recommendation for a beginner loom. While searching looms I found the amazing creative, Rachel, of @smileandwave on instagram. Go check her awesomeness out! Her flash sales are on the @smileandwaveflashsale. I follow both accounts because they are both filled with so much inspiration!

The Fleet and Flourish Blog Tour

  Fleet and Flourish Blog Hop  Hi All! I am posting a blog post! Like hold on wait a minute!

fixed 5

When you admire someone as much as admire Maureen Cracknell you say yes when she asks you to make something with her amazing fabric for her blog hop. I love Maureen and I am so honored to be sharing my project with you! She sent me some Fleet and Flourish to play with.

1 fixed

I had a plan, well sort of, from the beginning. I knew I really wanted to make something scrappy and kinda bear paw- ish. I think I kinda did just that. I love it so so much.

I am now dreaming of all of the amazing things I could do with quilting on this one. I mean I think I could do a million different things and I really think the quilting is going to make this one so special. It will transform this quilt a lot. I will make sure to share when I have it all quilted up.


I am in amazing company with others who have made their own special projects with this line. I have to say I am so amazed by the talent in this industry everyday. So many creative people that make up an awesome community.  fixed4
