Hobbies Up To Here Episode #36

Hey hobbyists and crafters! It’s podcast time…

Wait… Isn’t it Thursday?

Yes. Yes it is. And due to Dori’s pending trip to Ireland (lucky ducky) we are podcasting a day early this week.

Super excited to hear how Dori’s trip goes! She’s already reached out to a few shops in Ireland to visit so I best put in a list of goodies to bring back before she leaves!

Don’t forget to say hi to some sheepies!

Today we have NO TOPIC! So it’s just a sit and chat kind of day. Also included is a small segment from my little man talking about some of his crafty creations, including paracording!

While I may not be sewing or quilting much, I am taking some time to organize my crafty items and do a little journaling/scrapbooking with whatever I find.

Hey hobbyists and crafters! What’s shakin’? It’s summer time and we’re trying to keep as cool as possible in this sticky humidity all while creating and making things with our hands. So take a seat, grab some iced tea and listen to our newest podcast episode.

My mom’s QAYG blanket is done! I looks great especially after a good wash. Now it looks cozy and ready to gift to a new baby!

Now she’s moved on to her new WIP, her music quilt. It’s a bit busy but it’s still a quick and easy pattern to follow. Her work wall really comes in handy to see the whole project in one glance.

I’m SOOOOO close to finishing my Playful Colors quilt, I can taste it! After our podcast I got down and finished those last borders. I’m ready to sandwich this then quilt the top down so I can hurry up and bind it!

My mom and I talked about my love of girl things like lotion and makeup today. It’s a hobby I’ve embraced only in the last 3 or 4 years but one I find very creative and fun.

And yes, I am wearing clothing…

Journalling! It feels good to be crafty these days and making things that are beautiful and inspiring. I never force myself to sit down and write but when I do, I enjoy making my pages bright and colorful.


My mom poured her first doll mold and has started branching out. This is Madison, or it will be. I’m curious to see how her dolls comes together when she paints the faces on. For now, it’s just some human bits and pieces lying around, looking sinister. HAHAHA!

Linking up this week with a few great blogs. Don’t forget to check them all out!
