before my dirty thirty...




i was inspired by this & this. (thanks nicole & elsie!)

i have a bad habit of not completing things, so i made this list rather simple.
i'm excited to get started!

let them eat...pie!

after seeing this post on amy's blog, style crush, i instantly wanted to make these adorable little pies!
i figured they would be a perfect little treat to take to thanksgiving.
and i am so smitten with the epic alphabet pattern from sublime stitching, so i used them to make monogrammed tags for each guest.



i kept it simple, and presented the pies in the cardboard tray that the mason jars came in.

make mine a double.

i recently received jenny hart's most recent book -- embroidered effects.
i stitched up a double-sided bar towel, using patterns from embroidered effects & sublime stitching, as well as the older viva las vegas patterns.
