One Lovely Blog


Talk about quilty love out there, I actually got nominated by two different bloggers! After what a felt like an impossible month at school, it was nice to be recognized for my blog work. Thank you ladies for your kind words, this is exactly what keeps me blogging :) 

Check out their One Lovely Blog Awards posts linked above, then stay a while and check out the rest of their blogs! These two don't disappoint. 

Project from 2014

the other stuff I don't blog about ... 

1.  Glacier National Park or the Taj Mahal would be my ideal vacation spots.  Both are beautiful for different reasons.  Now to decide where to go first.

2.  Bridges have always been a fascination to me, even the boring ones that go over the highway.  If I wasn't teaching crazy middle schoolers I might be designing bridges.

3.  Growing up I always hated coffee and carrots, now I love them.  Although I still don't touch ketchup. Yuck.

4.  One of my cousins and I have an inventoried box of junk (yep, we clean out the junk drawers) that we pass back and forth. It started with her cleaning out her junk drawer into my oversized bag in high school and me not noticing until I pulled out some cat food in a baggy.  Since then it has gone back and forth. Last year I gave it to her as a surprise present in her car, wrapped and everything. It will be interesting to see how it gets returned. Usually when we least expect it.

5.  If cake is offered to me, I cannot resist. Or pie, I cannot resist that either.

6.  Fall is my favorite season. It's cool and crisp, the leaves change colors, and I get to wear my sweater collection.

7.  When I am not blogging or sewing, I love to bake (see fact #5).  Baking could easily be my second favorite hobby.

Recent Projects & Posts


Here is my list of go to blogs, these are my kind of blogs.  The kind where I can just kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy. I would highly recommend giving them a try.

  1. Wow, thanks so much for the nomination! I really enjoyed getting to know more about you. The box of junk is fascinating and I think I would be scared of how it would be delivered back to me!

  2. I'm with Yvonne! I'd be worried about finding weeks old cat food in my car! What a fun way for the two of you to interact though!

    Thanks so much for the nomination! I guess I'll have to find some time to blog soon!

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination. I feel the same way about you - love kicking back with a glass of wine (or tea these days since I can't drink for 6 more months) and catching up with someone who feels like an old friend.

  4. Thanks so much for the nomination. That is a pretty cool list of bloggers you have there, and I feel honoured to be among them.
    I wish I could bake like you do. Small families and baking are not a great combo. I take cooking classes and then have no one to feed! I am pretty good at savoury dishes, especially winter soups and stews, which I love.
    I have a cardigan collection.

  5. You sure do have one lovely blog, Chelsea. Nice to get a chance to learn a little more about you. What a pretty collage... Your projects are lovely, too!!!
