Creative Copycat - Weekend Edition #1

Today was a deliciously lazy day. I'm actually feeling a little remorseful that I didn't use more of the time to clean out that closet and start on a new quilt, but c'est la vie. It was still a good day, even if it did end with a heartbreaking loss for our Vols. Football season in the Petree home is a roller coaster, y'all.

I thought each Saturday of this month, I'd share a few lovelies. Just some thoughts, recipes, ideas that I've admired, things that would be fun to create.

  • Autumn is the perfect time for apple pie and I'm thinking Natalie has the perfect recipe.

  • Katie of Dear Mushka is writing this month about the tricks of the trade when it comes to scoring the top notch deals at Goodwill. She also makes absolutely gorgeous jewelry and I would love to have these earrings in pretty much every color. Swoon.

  • Painted pumpkins. Yeah, this is going to happen at some point.

  • Basically, I want to recreate this look all fall/winter long.

  • This potluck quilt is next in the line-up for me. Four years of sewing means I finally have enough scrap fabric to pull this off. I have the strips already cut and can't wait to start piecing it together!

  • I love my iPhone, but truth is it quickly becomes an unhealthy addiction for me. This post over at Momastery and this one about achieving a sane relationship with the Internet have been good reads for me this week. 
Anything else you've seen this week that I should check out?


  1. Leslie, I was scrolling through your list, loving everything (that pie... yum! that outfit... I want to wear it! that quilt? maybe it should be my next one, too!) and then realized that you'd linked to my shop. That was so sweet of you and made my day. Thank you! I'm glad you like the earrings =]

    1. You're shop is INCREDIBLE. The birthday wish list just got a little longer :)

  2. Love the quilt!!! I have two ready to be started, but I'm lacking so much motivation. I've been on the hunt for a quilting buddy, but it seems all the other 27 year olds around aren't so into quilting :)

    1. If I lived closer, I would soooo be your quilting buddy! I pick 2-3 favorite movies and play them on my laptop while I sew. Somehow that gets me in a good rhythm and I get a lot done.


Love me some comments! If you don't have a Google/Gmail ID, please make sure you leave your name and/or email. Also, I moderate my comments so don't be alarmed if it doesn't show up right away. Thanks, y'all!
