Well ....

My bags are packed, our nursery is all set-up, and every surface in my house has been wiped down with my Clorox wipes ... twice  ... yet my littlest man is still comfortably ensconced in his ever-shrinking apartment.

So, of all the things I expected to be doing this afternoon, sitting down at my dusty sewing machine was one of the last on the list.  But, thanks to some beautiful summer weather, hubby and Aiden are happily spending some much needed time in the backyard, and I have some time to play with these lovelies:

These are my favorite prints from Winter's Lane by Kate & Birdie Paper Co for Moda fabrics.  I just love how beautifully the Christmasy Red blends with the cool Mint and the warmer Grey prints!

Several months ago, I came across this beautiful rug on Pinterest:

Tara Rug by Joss and Main, available here

I'm thinking it just might be the inspiration I need for an unexpected afternoon of sewing!

As most of you have probably realized, Google Reader was discontinued as of July 1st - and you only have until July 15th to get your reader data moved over to a new platform!!  If you need help, you can check out this guide from Google!

With all that's been going on in our household lately, I haven't had a whole lot of time to research all the different reader platforms out there.  The majority of the blogs I follow, however, have all joined up with Bloglovin, so I've decided to follow their expert advice and jump on their bandwagon!

You can follow Cora's Quilts on Bloglovin here, or click on the link on my sidebar.  Thanks for stopping by!
