As I have mentioned numerous times before, I love fabric remnant bins. Those half priced, less than a yard pieces are all you need to make some adorable clothes for babies and toddlers, not to mention various other things. Anyway, some time ago, I found an adorable broken chevron print that, quite honestly, reminded me of a little boy button up shirt from the 80's. I had to buy it and make a dress for my daughter. Below is the outcome.
Perhaps one of the most challenging pieced quilts is a hexagon motif. I combined this challenge with one of the easiest methods of quilting, rag quilting. If you have never tried these techniques, make it your next project. There is something so satisfying by completing something that is a bit of a challenge.
I know it may sound nerdy, but I love PBS. Honestly, I prefer the documentaries and such over prime time television. What makes it even more nerdy is the fact that the commercials surrounding most of the shows I watch are geared toward senior citizens, which I am a good 30 years too young for. Anyway, one of the shows I really enjoy is Knit and Crochet Now! They have some really great projects and I often find myself trying new techniques because of what is taught there. Today's post is a shout out to a pattern they shared for an amigurumi kitten by Amy Gaines.
My mother in law shared this recipe with the family some years ago and it has really become a staple in our home. I try to keep most of the ingredients on hand so that it can always be a back up if I'm stumped on what to make. The best thing about this soup is that it makes a lot and the left overs are often better than when it was originally made. Try it out and let me know how it goes.
