What a weekend! I don't think the weather could have been more perfect. We spent massive chunks of time outside and braved the arrival of all of the bugs because the sunshine was too good to pass up. I watched a good bit of the coronation with Colton at my side on Saturday morning. What... Continue Reading →
Friday | Bring On the May Flowers!
Happy Friday, friends! It is the last Friday of April. This month totally zoomed by and I'm shocked that Monday is the first of May. I try my best to make Fridays about joy here in my Cozy Burrow, so today's post is full of flowers, stitching, and a few highlights from the week. I... Continue Reading →
Friday | The One Before School Break
It is the Friday before school vacation week! We're taking the week off from Blackberry Bluff School and Colton will be on a break from all of his programs. It might sound like a vacation but I'll likely be busier than ever and will yearn for a vacation of my own once the week ends.... Continue Reading →
The Case of the Mystery Gauge Swatch
Thank you everyone for your well wishes in my last post. Colton is pretty much back to normal but the rest of us are struggling. And it always makes the weekends hard when one child isn't sick but the rest of us are. Colton was pretty bored and impatient with us, especially given that we... Continue Reading →
Friday | A March Knitting Update
First of all - Thank you all for your well-wishes on Wednesday's post. Colton is still coughing, but he was fever-free yesterday so I'm pretty sure he's going to school today (for the first day this week!). I'm still fighting a fever but am feeling much better overall. And last night I was up and... Continue Reading →

Less | A Knitting Lesson
It's the last Monday of the month, which means Carolyn is hosting an official one little word link-up! Be sure to visit her and the other bloggers sharing their words this week -- it's always a treat to read everyone's progress. I've been writing about my own word a lot this year, but this entry...

Farmer’s Wife Quilt
Some of you may remember when The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt Book was first published back in 2009. It got really popular in quilting circles around 2013 and 2014 and Quiltstagram exploded with beautiful examples like Camille Roskelley's. While going through things in my little sewing nook, I found a box full of my own... Continue Reading →
Four Finished Quilt Tops?
Friday! It's been such a strange week. I can confidently say that we're on the mend now but I still don't have the lung power to hop on my spin bike, which I've been missing lately. I'm looking forward to having everyone home this weekend without the cloud of illness hanging over us! I was... Continue Reading →
Friday! | Annie Bayliss Update & Baking
Has the weather been strange in your neck of the woods? It has been so strange here! It's almost felt like spring - there's no snow on the ground, lots of rain, plenty of mud. I don't know what's in store for the rest of the winter, but I hope it's somewhat pleasant. Maybe we'll... Continue Reading →
