Where I Stand {this week}


 No links this week – I’m blogging from my phone with not one but two snuggly unwell boys. In perfect timing, it was cool enough to call Quilt Season open. I’ve made cards and fidget toys, I’ve worked on some bags & made a travel clutch. I have inspiration & mojo coming out my ears, but for today, I’m resting with my babes &

Snug as a bug in a tea cozy {commission}

I know, I know. It’s all I seem to blog at the minute. But this is the last commission I haven’t shared with you yet. This was super fun. A lovely friend in Canada shared a picture of her new mugs.
