When I told you about cleaning up my fabric last week, I should have been more specific. I organized my cotton quilting fabric. There was still several shelves of other fabrics I hadn’t tackled. You can probably guess what I did yesterday. I had a little bit of everything down there - fleece, faux leather, satin, mesh, knit, ballistic, duck, something shiny - I could open my own store.
The most interesting thing I found was a couple of yards of tiny houndstooth cotton broadcloth. It feels like it’s good quality, it’s a full 60” wide, and it’s reversible, with a pattern on both sides. It still had a store tag attached, which told me I bought it at Sprouse Reitz (anyone remember them?), obviously when I worked there in high school and college. But here’s the best part - the price tag says $2.97.
I pulled out about 30 yards of fabric I’ll be offering to my quilt guild next month, and originally I had the houndstooth in that pile. I pulled it back out though. Maybe one of these days I’ll actually use it. I feel like it’s earned its spot.

It’s probably a little chilly in many places to be outside building this fire pit from DIY Academy, but winter is for planning, right?
My dog is a senior citizen. He’s got some balding happening on his back, and has always been cold blooded anyway, so these days he wears a coat. He’d probably love the sherpa inside this DIY version from Wholefully.
I love the unique closure on this knit wrap from Alpi Alpenrose.
First we couldn’t eat cookie dough because of the raw eggs, and then it was the flour. Sprinkle Bakes has the solution to all of that, and it’s giftable. If you want to share, I mean.
So, obviously this felt doll pattern from DelilahIris is cute, but do you want to know what got me? Those tiny boots! 😍
