Instapot Inspirations Episode #63

While quilting and crafting are our top priorities when it comes to our hobbies, we’re human and we have to stop cutting fabric at some point and eat! This is where our new found love of the Instant Pot has come in handy. Check out our latest episode where we chit chat about our recent cooking successes!

I’ve already shared some of my success with the InstaPot (really, we know it’s Instant Pot but we love to nickname things!) on my Meal Prep Monday post not long ago. Together, Dori and I talk about our interests in learning and doing more with our magical opt of foodie goodness.

#quiltnon2017 was a blast and we even WON SOMETHING! How cool is that! Check out the hashtag on Instagram so see all the great posts from this weekend’s stay-at-home party while all the Quilt Con-goers got to party it up live in Savannah.

Our Annual Thankful Post! Episode #55

It’s that time of year again, hobbyists and crafters! Time to get down and thankful!

We start off our podcast this week promising some future content to be posted! So keep an eye out for these future posts.

We have a few WIPs on deck and a few of them aren’t quilting projects!

Some crochet books have arrived!


If you think it LOOKS soft, just wait till you feel it!


My dad has a gift for dollies. Here is one he made!


I’ve started some creative journaling in my new Sark’s Journal!


A little of the stitching I’ve been doing on my mandala.

Because we are feeling so thankful, we wanted to shout out to a few listeners/friends who reached out with some comments.

  • Thanks Alida over at Tweety Loves Quilting for thinking of us!
  • And to Kati for thinking of us, also! Check her out at Kati’s Quilting and Sewing.
  • Don’t forget to go over and subscribe to Frances at The Off Kilter Quilt! We’re reading her new book Birds in the Air and we’ll share our thoughts on it soon!
  • Julie reached out to ask about the Luminess Airbrush system. We hadn’t used it before but Dori jumped on the chance to try out a new makeup product. She’ll have to share her thoughts when she’s used it! Thanks for listening, Julie!
  • Nonnie from Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams podcast shared a fabulous recipe with us from our Monday post. Definitely worth checking out!

Last year we shared everything we were thankful for and we plan to keep this a annual event. It’s great to take time out of our busy lives to share our appreciation to all of our friends and family! If it wasn’t for all of you, we’d just be two crazy crafters sitting around talking about our hobbies.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
