It’s a busy time of year, and I feel like I’ve been neglecting my blog followers. I am working on some fun things for you, though! I’m going to have a holiday giveaway and a new tutorial coming soon. I’m excited for both of these!
The giveaway will include some fun things that I’ve been stowing away all year and there will be two winners chosen. This is NOT happening today, but later next week. I’ll have all the details in the holiday giveaway blog post.
The tutorial I’m working on is SO perfect for the Winter season. But, I do need your help with one thing. I’m not sure what size to make it. I started this project with a long pillow in mind, similar to a bench pillow that would fit a 16″ x 26″ pillow form. It will look like the image below.
I feel like that size is very limiting. Would it be helpful to make a quilt block that is square? The size I have in mind for that is 16″ (finished). It would make a nice pillow or just a block that you could repeat in a quilt. It would look like this:
I might be opening a can of worms by asking what size you prefer – square or rectangle. I could also do both, but it will take a little longer to write up the instructions. That’s my conundrum for today! Feel free to leave a comment below and share your thoughts on that one.
Besides all that, I hope you’re having a good December so far. I’m getting ready for a house full of kids and grandkids beginning on December 22nd. They trickle in and they trickle out, but we’ll all overlap for a few days between Christmas and New Years. My oldest granddaughter asked if I would have a hot chocolate bar set up when they get here. Of course, I said! So, I purchased these adorable Snowman Shaped Kid Mugs from Pottery Barn Kids (on sale, no affiliation) which work just fine for adults, too. I found a tiered stand at Home Goods that fits the mugs and the hot chocolate fixings perfectly. Such a small addition to the kitchen that will put a big smile on the littles.
Make sure to check out my Spicy Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe for an adult twist, and you can’t go wrong with the Pinwheel Star Placemats (pictured above). Also pictured above is my favorite breakfast of yogurt, fruit, and my homemade Maple Pecan Granola (the best!).
Thanks for reading! I’ll be back later this week with that new tutorial!
