I have two close friends who have just bought their first house together and are having a party tonight. Since we are in full swing of the holiday season a pair of homemade stockings seemed fitting. I recycled 2 great sweaters and added matching red wool loops. I hope Santa stuffs these full!

To kick off the holiday season I visited the coastal town of Rockland with my boyfriend and his family. We spent our day shopping at the boutiques and vintage shops on Main Street. Boy, was it chilly! I swear I spotted at least eight snowflakes! To warm up we stopped at Rock City for a round of delicious hot drinks and perused the shelves at Hello Hello Books. A personal highlight, the Farnsworth Museum offered a beautiful array of art accompanied by holiday music. We wrapped up the day by watching the holiday parade, complete with a giant lobster float decorated in red lights, a lit sailboat, and a classic red truck hauling the perfect little Christmas tree. If you should find yourself in the mid coast Maine region this holiday I highly recommend stopping by for a festive visit!
I am thrilled that Deb the lovely lady behind the delicious blog, smitten kitchen has published her first cookbook! While I was out shopping last weekend I discovered the beautiful mouthwatering book. This will be going to the top of my wish list for Santa!!
I finished my sweater quilt this past weekend and it is now up in the shop! This quilt is crafted of beautiful upcycled wool and cotton sweater swatches. Ivory, creams and oatmeal with pops of light and charcoal grays result in a calming organic palette. The quilt has 100% cotton batting, is backed with 100% prewashed cotton indigo gray fabric, and has been finished with hand-sewn edges.
Perfect as a cozy throw on your couch or an additional layer on a twin bed this quilt is ideal for cool, crisp days.
