This weekend I was thankful to have Rose+Twill featured as one of Charleston Grit‘s local Mother’s Day gifts in their post “Be Mom’s Favorite“. Charleston Grit is one of the blogs for Charleston Magazine, a local staple. Sweet!
I also worked most of the weekend (for those of you who don’t know me personally, I also waitress 4 days a week, mostly on weekends. Gotta pay those bills until quilting makes me rich! Yeah….cough, cough).
I did have time to whip up some commissioned pillows for my friend Rory of SPOTstyles. She recently relocated from Charleston to Augusta, and wanted to fill up her amazing velvet sofa in her new craft room with some pops of color. Give her blog a look-see for great DIYs and decorating tips.
Sunday, though, I did not work. This is different for me. I ALWAYS work brunch…but since the hubby was off yesterday as well I decided to give up my shift. So we went and ATE brunch instead! And then relaxed all day! The weather was perfect so we just hung out on the porch with the pups. And did nothing. And it was glorious.
Pillows for Rory’s craft room. Her post about thrifting all of her decor finds for this room is here.
The week before last, I was working on a quilt for a friend’s wedding gift so obviously I couldn’t post anything about it or it wouldn’t be a surprise. Although these days, pretty much everyone I know could probably guess that they’re getting something handmade from me if they have an occasion. The quilt I made for her and her husband is listed in the shop as a custom option, because I love how the herringbone pattern came out and want to make a hundred more! I feel like it’s so versatile too, it could be feminine or masculine depending on what you back it with.
