Return from the Red Rocks

Ah, really, there is nothing like the feeling of driving into Sedona. There is something about seeing those majestic red rock formations that just forces me to relax.

Vintage Linen Quilts

I am so excited to finally share with you a project I have been working on for a while. You see, when my MIL and FIL moved to Phoenix, we helped them to unpack and get settled. While unpacking, many family heirlooms were shared. My MIL’s mother, Sarah, was a sewer and an embroiderer. Among
