Top 5 Hits

Top 5 Hits
Each week I feature my Top 5 Hits from the web.  Each one is fun and creative, enjoy!T

A most remarkable quilt isn’t it? Titled, “Sunday Best” , Cherri @ Cherry House Quilts created it. Moda Bake Shop has the recipe and you can get it for free. Her tip for turning out triangles is tremendous. I also adored this petite pin cushion shared as an added bonus…kind of the “cherry on top!”

In my travels this week, I landed on this outrageously ingenious idea I just had to pass along to all my gardening family and friends, especially Shane who has a huge garden! I don’t have “pumpkin growing” space in mine, but Stacy does. She is a proud wife and mother to three little boys, @ Not Just a Housewife. She shares her secret, a different way to “carve” a pumpkin! You’ll want to see it now and make a note in your gardening log for next Spring.


Now here’s a trick from smart Jodi @ Pleasant Home one of my very favorite daily fixes! For all of you quilters like me, look at how sassy her Quilt Binding unrolls; clean, off the floor, with no tangles. She has me hitting “High C” for COOL!


I’m all about the “Happy” part of Halloween and this cute Halloween Candy Jar meets my criteria! Thanks to Mrs. Owen @ A Pumpkin and a Princess for a terrific idea.


Classy Marla @ Always Nesting provides us with a real treat this week. Just for fun (and for me), go and find your smile at Two Hours of My Life I Will Never Get Back. I think Marla’s provided me with a whole new storage bin to blog about! ;D Love it Marla…
Have an inspired weekend all!

    Thank you for featuring my candy jar, and sharing all of the other ideas! Have a great weekend!


    Super….love the quilt!! And anything for the season…Halloween, I most certainly am interested!! As Halloween is a favorite of mine. The sparkly pumpkin is something I may do for sure.

    Hi Gnee! I found two fun new sites to follow from your post today-thanks! Love the quilt and the pumpkin idea, and what is it we all love about pincushions? I guess they’re just to darn cute!!!

    I saw Marla’s and laughed right along with her!! That’s such a great blog anyway. When I get some time, I’ll definitely be looking at the others. I like the *happy* part of Halloween like as you do, and I’ve already mentioned the husband’s love of the candy corn.

    Thank you so much for adding my quilt to my top 5!!!

  6. Marla @ Always Nesting

    My pumpkin is honored to be featured at Five on Friday. Who would think that my pumpkin project gone bad would be passed along in blogland? LOL, I guess it’s all something we can relate to.

    Hi! I can’t believe we haven’t “met” before in Blog Land. Love your blog– that candy corn machine is so fun. It could help me perpetuate my candy corn habit! Following you from NFF. Would love for you to consider following me back. AND would love for you to link up a project or recipe to our A Crafty Soiree Linky Party. Every Thursday… yesterday’s linky still open.

    Happy Weekend! Malia

    What a beautiful quilt. I would love to try that someday, once I get everything else done that I want to do!!! Love your bewitching bars too. They could make me gain weight just looking at them.

    I haven’t made it to La Jolla Grove yet but to Malawi pizza where Maglebys used to be and loved it. My son and friends went and they have all loved La Jolla. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Awesome features. Thanks so much for your sweet comment and the info on the pum[kin feature. I think I have to do a little better though to really put it out there. Perhaps I will try again.

  12. Sassy Sites!
