On Another Note 3

Hello and welcome to On Another Note where I share links to beautiful things I found in Blogland! Sometimes it is hard to find them all yourself and these you don't want to miss!

I just love this block by Jess and she wrote a great tutorial on her blog Shadow Star for do. Good Stitches Cheer Circle | Jess K Quilts


Shadow Star is a color popping block that would make a lovely quilt! I could see using this block in a tote bag, purse or pillow! Make sure you book mark this one! You can find Jess on Instagram at Jess K (@jesskquilts) • Instagram photos and videos

OMG! I love Violet, when I saw this turtle on Kim's blog My Go-Go Life: Monday Motivation! {free pattern link in post}! If you like soft toys this is a must make! Find Kim on Instagram Kim Niedzwiecki (@gogokim) • Instagram photos and videos


This little wallet sure looks handy and a great gift idea made by Ashley Nickels, part of the Dear Handmade Life Team, for Simple DIY Fabric Wallet - Dear Handmade Life. The tutorial is easy to follow! So check it out for yourself you can make up a few for your favorite people. They look like they would make great business card holders too! You can find Ashley on Instagram at Ashley Nickels (@alphabetashley) • Instagram photos and videos her feed is full on inspiration!


Have a great Monday we are dealing with Pink Eye! Parent alert this is not serious if treated! You or your child can catch it anywhere, not just from school. If your child gets red swollen eyes call your pediatrician!


My poor little man. Drops 4 times a day and no school until Thursday! It came on over night Friday with a little crust on the right eye. Got drops called in by pediatrician on Saturday. On Monday, we have it in both eyes, ugh! Think we will be playing some games! Create and be unique! Lisa

Nuts About ? Blog Hop and Giveaway




I have always loved a good blog hop and this is a great one so far! Nuts About ? was thought up by Marian of Seams To Be Sew! She is such a sweet hostess. Thank you Marian for all your hard work. I spent a great deal of time thinking about what I am nuts about! My family (yes, but not for a hop), I truly love pincushions, but I really do have a thing for pillows!

I am Nuts for - Pillows

Don't you just love Charlie Harper! I do! Sometimes a print is just to perfect to cut up. Do a little straight line quilting and make pretty pillows for your couch. The lighting in my house was bad today, so out on the lawn for photos.

Here are a few I have made over the last 8 months! Great way to practice invisible zippers!

Making couch cushions kind of brightens up a room! Holidays is just one reason to make a pillow or two!

Even the neck pillow got recovered! Love the blue roses by Cotton + Steel! It is removeable.

These were all made using Lori Holt patterns from her book, Farm Girl Vintage (I am nuts over that book too)! I made the one below as a gift when my daughter was ill! It really cheered up her room!

Please go stop in and visit the other blogger's for today!

One Monthly Goal

Oh, how can it already be February? I have a lot going on with family but everyone needs to make time (even a little) for themselves during stressful times. So my goal this month is to make one row, any row from the book All In A Row!

Red Letter Quilts: OMG: One Monthly Goal Linkup - Time for February Goals!

Maybe I will make Pat Sloan's row of laundry on the line! The contest runs from February 1, 2016 to March 15, 2016. Each row you make is an entry into the contest.

Allinarowquiltalong to find out more on facebook!

I love the idea that the money made feeds kids! One reason to buy the book (feed kids) but the best reason is that most of the rows are made to be quick and easy!

To get the book for yourself Martingale - Moda All-Stars All in a Row (Print version + eBook bundle)

I am not in anyway associated with this contest, I just want to win!

Thank you, Lisa

I am linking up with the others for OMG at Red Letter Quilts
