Mug Rugs for the De Stash Challenge and Blog Hop

I've dipped into my fabric stash again.  This time for Mug Rugs.  "What is a Mug Rug?", you might ask.

A Thrifted Vase and Frog for The Upcycle Challenge

The idea of this particular challenge is to upcycle an item found in a thrift store.  These talented bloggers are in on the fun today:

It's exciting to see everyone put their spin on the challenge!  Here's mine.  You may remember these dusty items I found waaaay back in the summer!

You're the Star {January} Week 3

Welcome to Week #3 of the Blog Hop!  It is cold and snowy here in Arkansas.  I hope your home is warm and cozy!. Thank you for visiting my Stone Cottage today!

I recently published this post about all my De Stash Challenges of 2017.  So you'd think my craft room would be empty, right?  ;-)  Nope!  Another de stash challenge will be posted later today.

Travels with Marci and The Cows on Hwy 127

My full time job (besides blogging) has me on the road quite a bit these days, regularly buzzing around eight different counties here in Arkansas.  I am so very blessed to live in a beautiful area.  When something catches my eye, I pull over for a sec and snap a picture or two with my phone.

I've posted tractors, barns, and churches as well as sunrises, mountains and trees.

Twirling Skirt Feature

If you've been reading my blog for very long, you already know whenever I need a specific sewing pattern or tutorial, the first place I look is Threading My Way blog.  I am so very honored to have one of my posts featured there today!

These TWIRLING SKIRTS were sewn using one of Pam's tutorials at Threading My Way.

Thank you, Pam, for all the sewing inspiration and information!

De Stashing Challenges from 2017

What a year it has been for de-stashing my crazy, cram-packed craft room!

Maybe there won't be an avalanche in there now?  It's hard to say!  ;-)

Here are all the links for these projects!

We Have a Winner!! Congrats to...

Gardening is one of my favorite pastimes.  I love the feel of dirt in my hands.  It's wonderful to watch the plants grow and change each day.  We have a greenhouse and vegetable garden.  Part of our yard is specifically for attracting native birds while another area is an open invitation to butterflies.  Plants that attract butterflies are also helpful to bees and other pollinators.

Have you noticed my little blog has a page all about gardening?
