A Monster Taggie Blanket

Since I didn’t have enough leftover fabric from the crib sheet to do the backing of Huxley’s monster quilt, I wanted to make something else with some of the fabric.  I settled on a taggie blanket as a great way to use up some of the fabric. One side is pure Monster’s Inc., using the Read More …

WIP Wednesday

I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress in the last week. I finally got around to finishing up the baby quilt for my new nephew, Huxley. I also made him another little gift, but it’s a surprise, so I won’t be sharing that one with you until after I get to give it Read More …

Booklr Questions – Do you watch any booktubers?

Do you watch any booktubers? I can honestly say that I don’t really watch any booktubers.  I know it’s a big thing, but I can’t seem to get interested in the idea.

The best part is their Flash Sale page, which gets updated at 10AM every day.  That means I Read More …

Booklr Questions – What do you get besides books at a bookstore?

What do you get besides books at a bookstore? Since there aren’t any independent bookstores in my area (other than second hand shops), most of my local book shopping happens at Barnes and Noble. I love looking through the periodicals section there, and occasionally pick up one of the more expensive web development magazines that Read More …
