Rounding some things up….

This morning I was greeted with beautiful Fall-like weather. I was wondering if I was dreaming for a second, because I’m just so used to going outside at 6am to hot, sticky nastiness. Yep, even at 6am. Man, I hope that weather comes back soon. I don’t know how much of the hot, sticky mess I can take anymore!

With that glimpse of the Fall, it reminded me that Fall always makes me think of a change, and well, some things are about to change around here. :)

A new venture...

Any guess as to what those fabric cuts will be used for? Nothing to do with quilts, that’s for sure. These fabric cuts are going to be made into dog bandanas. Ever since I brought my dog to the groomer and got her a bandana, I got inspired. I think she looks adorable in one, but paying almost $10 for one bandana was really crazy to pay. So, I figured there had to be a better, CHEAPER way to make this work!

These bandanas aren’t all for Millie, though. They are going to be in an ETSY SHOP! That’s right…The Nifty Foodie is opening an Etsy shop. :) I’m really excited about this, and I hope this little idea brings on at least one sale! :)

While I’m working on my little ol’ future shop, here’s the status of a couple of quilts I’ve been working on, which are actually both almost done!

This is the charm pack quilt that I mentioned a while back. It’s all sandwiched up and ready to be quilted. Wahoo! The quilt was done in this charm pack and has Kona cotton (in Snow) in between the rows.

This is an Amy Butler quilt (fabrics are here) that I made in a class. OMGosh…I absolutely LOVE this quilt. I quilted it by doing the “stitch in the ditch” technique, and can’t wait to bind it.

I can’t wait to see all of these projects finished, and start working on some new ones too. Gosh, I love sewing!


  1. Good luck with the etsy shop! If I had a dog, I would want to outfit it with one of your bandanas. :-) They are super cute.!

  2. Congrats on opening your Etsy shop :)

  3. Oooh…I love these colors! Blue and green go together so well – so pretty!
