Saturday Digest

►I've never watched Downton Abbey, but I hear it's a great show.  Knowing that it inspired this line of fabric from Kathy Hall, makes me want to watch it.  The above print is called The Dowager's Paisley in Ebony.  The entire collection can be viewed here at Hawthorne Threads.

You may enjoy the collages of the fabric collections here at The Fabric Depot blog.

►Now this looks like fun!  Printing using polystyrene.

►And, from the same site, Total Art Soul,  bird seed ornaments.  I'd like to make these with the kids.

►I made these Chocolate-Pumpkin Cupcakes this week.  Big thumbs up to them.  Recipe makes about 16 cupcakes.

►I never could do a decent cartwheel.  Found out last night that I still can't.
Thank goodness I didn't break anything. :)

Have a great weekend!


  1. Your cartwheel needs to be one of your "action thingamabobs" you do
    Oh you must go back and watch DA. Worth it for sure. A perfect gather round the girls and eat cupcakes kinda thing.

  2. I read that Downton Abbey had inspired a fabric designer - I'd love to look at it all. Will check out your link after commenting.
    I could never do a cartwheel either, and I'm not going to try any more.

  3. The fabric is very pretty! I followed Downtown Abbey - the clothes and the interior design was very pretty. Your pumpkins look very delicious!

  4. I enjoyed the printing link. It looks like a linoleum block print without the hassle (and danger of gouging your hand)

  5. Those cupcakes look heavenly!! Hmmm...may have to make them for my husband's bday this weekend??


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
