Link Love No.74!

I am pretty happy that I finished a quilt I started before the angiogram. My drive to create things is very strong, but I have been taking it easy these days. I haven't taken pictures yet, but I think I will be able to share them sometime next week.

Are you ready to see the link love for this week?

Sarah, how did you know that one of my favorite drinks in winter time is mulled cider? I love the mulled spice from William Sonoma, but with her recipe maybe I won't need to buy that anymore!

What a lovely purse! Occasionally Crafty shared this delightful scallops bag with us. Don't you think this will make a fun Christmas gift?

There are many ways to use old sweaters for refashion, and this is one example.
Look at these pretty boot toppers! In His Grip shares a step by step tutorial on her blog. I know what I am going to look for on my next trip to a thrift store!

Usually I am drawn to more colors when it comes to quilts, but I really like this quilt! Stitching By Starlight shared this quilt she made using Rachel Griffin's pattern from Fat Quarter shop. The Original quilt has more colors, and it looks pretty too. It is just so interesting to see how choosing a different color scheme changes the whole look of the quilt, even though it was made by using the same pattern. you didn't! This motorcycle Jacket is just way too cute! Well I probably would say cool! (At some point, my boys started to get offended when I said "cute" to them, they said, "no, mommy, I am cool!".) Shwin & Shwin created this very handsome jacket, and it is amazing to see the tutorial on how they created it.

Thank you for your participation. Happy creating!


  1. Thanks for featuring my bag! You're so sweet!

    Have a wonderful weekend-

  2. The mull cider looks so inviting!
    Your scalloped purse darling. The boot toppers are genius. The quilt is so gorgeous with the pinwheels.
    I would have to have it on the wall.
    The little boy is so cute in his leather jacket I can't believe all the detailed stitching. She did an amazing job.

    Have a Blessed Day,
    Patricia aka Mamaw

  3. Thanks for featuring the Jacket! Yes I totally agree my son doesn't like to be "cute" anymore he is all about being "cool" or "nice" I can take nice, but it would have been nice if he would have waited a few more years on being too cool for "cute"

  4. I love the scalloped bag too! Thanks for your visit and sweet comment!

  5. Wow!! Thanks for featuring my quilt! What a nice surprise. :) I agree - changing a color scheme can change the entire look of a pattern. Thanks again!

  6. Thank you so much for featuring my mulled cider.
    And those boot topped are a brilliant idea! I'm off to take a look! I love the things you picked out this week. Thank you! Sarahx
