First Ever Guest Post

Hi everyone!  Today, I'm really excited to have Jan on my blog for my first ever guest post!  Jan and I both participated in the Covert Robin gift exchange.

I feel so lucky that Jan drew my name, and is here today to share with you what she made!  Take it away, Jan:

(Kristen here) Yup, that's my dresser.  Proof that the gift is really up and appreciated!

When I received your name in the covert robin swap I immediately went to your blog and looked around. I notice the quote you pinned from Pinterest "If nothing goes right, look left" and the comment on the colors you wanted to redo your bedroom in and I got the idea to make you a wall hanging. I love the dresden plate pattern and it seemed to fit with the quote so that is what I made. So happy to hear it is on your wall in your bedroom and I hope it is the beginning of the bedroom redo. Enjoy. Jan


As you can see, Jan is a VERY talented quilter!  This is hanging on the wall in my bedroom now, right where I can see it every morning and remember that if things are going wrong, it is important to remember that there's always another option you haven't tried.  You should certainly go check out her blog, where she's posted even more of her amazing work.  You will not be disappointed.  Have a great day, lovelies!


  1. This is 100 percent awesome in every sense of the word. I love it when people care enough to do something like that with their own hands!

  2. Oh my gosh, I want to know how this was done. I'm having visions of using my husbands old ties to make a lap quilt for him (which he's been bugging me about for ages).

    1. I think if you were to email Jan she would be happy to help you! I'm quilting challenged, so I have no idea how she made something so amazing.


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
