Wow. It's just been a bear of a week (or two), hasn't it? Hopefully you are safe from all the disasters happening around the country right now. We're still breathing smoke here, sitting a little under 10 miles from the most recent wildfire that's ravaging our beautiful Columbia River Gorge. I actually had to make an evacuation list, which felt so surreal. I've lived in Oregon forests most of my life and never even had to consider that before. My husband came home this morning and showed me video of embers tumbling from the top of Multnomah Falls. It's heartbreaking. But all of the residents, their animals and our emergency personnel are safe and I'm so thankful for that. I think we're all about due for a break from this chaos - who's with me?

While we're on that subject, here's another fun idea for the gift bank from Quirky Granola Girl.
If you've got kids with after school munchies or, like me, you're in the kitchen looking for something to bridge the gap between lunch and dinner, this fruit leather from Baked by Rachel might be just the thing.
I have all the ingredients to make this bacon jam from Noble Pig in my kitchen right now. I can't wait to try it!
I've seen a few different bookshelf quilts, but I love that this pattern from JessicaQuilter on Craftsy makes use of all those cute fabric selvage pieces.
