savory breakfast tarts, patchwork and a new baby

So, it seems like once a week was a stretch. The time is just flying by. The business is growing, life is settling in and this weekend I found some time to do a few projects, a little baking, little crafting, a little visiting with friends. Here's the recap:

  • Our friends, Becky and Gary had there first baby on Monday and he is beautiful and wonderful and I am so happy for them. Welcome to the world, Mathias!

  • He was a little early in coming, so what was intended to be a pre-baby shower turned in to a post-baby shower. We convened at Becky and Gary's house for yummy treats, baby snuggles, and good conversation. I was googling around online last night trying to find a savory brunchy recipe to make for the party and came across these Bacon & Egg Tarts on a beautiful Australian food blog. They were a big hit and so easy to make. I will post more about my version later this week.



  • I took a few hours to sew the other night. I had no plan, I just wanted to relax, use up some scraps and create something useful. I pulled together a little log house patchwork hot pad for the kitchen. It turned out much better then I expected and relieved a little pent-up creative steam.


  • It was sale weekend (through Saturday) at our fabulous local fabric boutique, Selvedge Studio and I had a gift certificate! I didn't have a specific project in mind, so I just grabbed a dozen or so half-yard pieces of a variety of different fabrics. I got such a great selection and it was so much fun.

I love that owl fabric so much! I swear I buy some of it every other time I go into Selvedge. I really need to find something to make out of it and get on it!
