Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Writer's Workshop - Pinterest

2.) Are you on Pinterest? Share the last five items you pinned, choose one and let it inspire a blog post.

Am I on Pinterest?  Umm, hell yeah I am!  I spend too much time on there.  I spent most my time looking for one of 3 things.... recipes, crafts - mostly sewing or color inspirations for quilts, and I like the "humor" tab.  Here are my last 5 pins...

I pinned this from Design Seeds - I go to this site every day and when a palate "moves me" I pin it for possible quilt ideas.

I pinned this one because I want to start using more solid colors other than white for quilt backgrounds.  I don't like the single girl pattern, but this purple just spoke to me!

I pinned this one because I loved how this person used the thin blue line and I am always up for more half square triangle patterns!

Oh yum, a recipe!  This pin was a great little dip find.  I mean hellp cinnamon almond dip?  Sounds delish to me!

Lastly is this beauty.  This a a rug I saw and it matches an idea I have for an upcoming wedding gift.  Let me tell the story behind it....

This is my friend Tiffany and her fiance Ryan.   Take not of the matching Columbia jackets, beach in the background...

Tiff and I have been friends for a long time and her and Ryan are getting married in October.  I am a bridesmaid - yay!  Anyway, the two of them are very outdoorsy.  They go hiking and biking and he even proposed on a hot air balloon ride in wine country.  They are always outside and I was trying to think about how I could use that idea for a gift.  Since my go-to gift is quilts and sewn items I was stumped {tee hehe pun} until I saw this gorgeous quilt....
Not sure of source, if anyone knows plz tell me in a comment!

How perfect!  A tree quilt!  I pinned the rug for further inspiration of how to quilt the tree lines.  I want to of course add the heart with either their initials and wedding date, or their last name, or first names only.  Not sure yet, but something.  I am very excited to work on this in coming months. 

So there you have it, a look into my last 5 pins and the story behind one of them!  Join in at Mama Kats.

Oh, I love the tree quilt idea! I bet they will, too. (I don't know them, but how could they not love it?) How creative and unique.

The cinnamon fruit dip looks yum, too.
