The Blind Hem Revealed!

After viewing this tutorial from Grosgain, I finally understand the Blind Hem. Thanks Grosgain!

Peach Wine Coolers

Don't these look YUMMY? I can't wait to try them! Who wants to come to my house for a party? Annie over at Annie's Eats, one of my favorite food blogs, posted these yummy looking (and sounding) peach wine coolers.

Sounds like a great excuse to have a party, I love new drink recipes!

Craft Hope

As you know from this post. I was working on some charity projects earlier this year. I missed the deadline to participate with the Etsy Quiltsy Team in the Pillowcases for Haiti :-( I was sad that I didn't get to send any pillowcases. But Craft Hope is teaming up with Conkerr Cancer to collect pillowcases for Children's Hospitals. Check out their post on this new project.

I picked out some cute fabrics when I was planning to make some pillowcases with the Etsy Quiltsy Team, so here are some of the pillowcases I'm planning on making.

That Girl! Summer Jacket Knit-Along

This pattern and knit-along have come across my blog reader twice now. And after admiring it, but know that I wouldn't wear it...I finally came up with the perfect recipient (actually I have two perfect recipients, I might have to make two!) I'm usually not much of a sweater knitter but there is something about this cute little jacket that just calls to me. So I'm going to give it a go. Some of the knitters in the knit along are nearly finished and the photos that they have been posting are amazing! I can only hope that mine will turn out as good!
