A Multi-Category Post

I have been looking back through some of the common topics I blog about here, seeking some inspiration:

On the trails, at the market, in my garden, Etsy buys, Sunday stash, and progress reports.

We went hiking last weekend on a trail close to our house, but I didn’t bring my camera. Since I can’t have a post without a picture, I am going to share a few more pictures from our adventures in New York.

Our outdoor farmers market ended in early November.

Our gardening season is over, which I’m happy about. By September, I get burned out on gardening and yard work. After raking leaves a couple times in October, I am really done.

I have been doing a little etsy shopping lately, so I can’t wait to receive those handmade goodies.

I haven’t ordered any new fabric in a long time, but I did visit this cool fabric shop in New York City. It’s about two to three blocks from my brother-in-law’s office, in the most quaint and quiet neighborhood.

The City Quilter shop

I did buy a couple pieces of fabric. No plans for it yet; I just had to have it. You know how that is.

I haven’t sewn anything new in a couple weeks, so I don’t have a progress report to share. I received a commission request today, so now I am excited to have a sewing mission to work on!

I haven’t cooked much or baked at all since Thanksgiving, so I don’t have any recipes to report on. This weekend I am hoping to bake some sugar cookie cut-outs to decorate, and peanut butter blossoms, which I adore.

I will leave you with that picture of my sister-in-law and brother-in-laws adorable kitties. We had so much fun hanging out with them too. Hope everyone is having a good week!

  • ooohhhh, look at those sweet baby faces!

    I’m totally coveting those music prints, there’s even a banjo, which my sweetie is into now (it used to be Martin guitars, but for the last year, everything is about the banjo!)

  • Love the picture of the bridge…and the tree…and the storefront of the City Quilter…I’d heard about that shop! How fun that you got to visit!

  • Such variety! The look on those cats faces says, “Step back or pay!” So glad your back (selfish, I know!)!

  • Dear Terri, it’s always nice to look back thru our little bubble space topics to get some inspiration. It’s almost year end and i’ve been thinking and re-visiting what i have done in year 2009. 🙂 Prolby a good year end topic.

    Thanks for sharing your walk at the parks, your goodies, your inspiration, things you make, your garden, and bits of your family. 🙂 Each time i come knocking on your bubble space, i always always enjoyed myself and always leave with a huge smile.

    Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

  • Hmmm, so are you a musical sort of person? Those are pretty cool fabrics!

  • Love the New York pictures, such a great place! And the musical fabric is great, I can’t wait to see what you decide to make with that.

    Cute kitties!

  • I really love that bridge, and those kitties are cute! I’m glad to take a break from the garden as well; although, I’m not enjoying this freezing cold weather we’ve had the last few days here!!

    I’m excited to see what you commissioned project is when it’s all finished!! Have a great weekend!!
