Some of this and some of that!

 Hello again, 

This week has been an incredibly busy one~I'll share about it in next week's blog post~ so not much time for creating or writing a long blog post, but I did find some time to share some cute and sweet projects that I found around the web.

Simply click on the link below the photo to go to the various sites. Enjoy!

A sweet little key ring made with some simple paper-piecing:

If you are in need of some coasters, how about these cuties?

A great catch-all for keys and other small items~ A coiled fabric basket made with lots and lots of scrappy strips:

A pretty little scissors case to hold and protect your small scissors:

While scrolling around the Internet I kept seeing photos of quilts that all came from the same pattern. So I of course had to go searching for it and found this link:  https://amzn.to/3h9H9Sh. The original pattern is fairly muted-looking, but some of the varieties are quite bright. See for yourself. This is the original: 
And here are some varieties: 



Wouldn't this pattern be a great scrap buster? 


And finally, not at all sewing or fabric related, but I had to share this amazing looking pastry! And did you know calories don't count on weekends? ;)
