In the fine traditon of whacky Oregon summer weather, it's crazy hot out here! Ok, ok, it's about 90. That's not crazy hot to some. Having never had any tolerance for the heat (I wilt like the gentle flower that I am...heh heh heh), some days 70 is too hot... Continue reading

Today I'm considering what to do with this blog. Do I like blogging? Yes. Why? Sometimes I have thoughts about things and it would make my friends insane if I sent them every home dec link I love. Its also nice to be able to show fam/friends what I'm up... Continue reading

hello? is it me you're looking for? I'm such an intermittent blogger. The last vestiges of winter/early spring are here in PDX and I'm so. very. sick. of. rain. I do really love rain, but seriously. It's time to lighten up out here! To that effect, I made new *ultra*girly*... Continue reading

It snowed last night! They always say it's going to, but it never does. I had my doubts. They were unfounded. It's always "Snowpocalypse 2011" on the news, whenever a flake may fall. Just keep calm, people! Drive slower. That solves most problems. Theo loves watching the snow fall, you... Continue reading

I thought this was going to be my picture for the day: Slightly out of focus, because candlelight will do that, it was dark this morning... because this was about to happen: We were all very curious. This had not been part of the forecast... Big clumps of snow, like... Continue reading

(found last year at an antique shop) Never thought I'd ever post this early in the morning. But my coffee was ready on time, the pets didn't put up a fuss during feeding time and so far (in this hour) things have been going smoothly. It's quiet, of course, and... Continue reading

This morning I sat in the cold winter sun with Theo, our morning ritual; he purrs, I groggily drink coffee. I don't want to forget that time, ever, because he's such a little buddy. And so I'm doing a little year-long project, one picture a day to remember the little... Continue reading

Sew Mama Sew has a little sewing survey, looking back at 2010 and forward at 2011. They always have fun conversations going on over there, count me in! Looking back on the sewing scene of 2010, what trends stand out in your mind? Designers using 'new' fabrics for their lines.... Continue reading

What? I have a blog? Huh, fancy that. Ahhh, prime blogging season; January 2nd till July 4th. Good times! What have I been up to? Well, lots of working at the hospital, my brother + sister in law + nephew came for Christmas, some more work, then some work! I... Continue reading

Summer happened! What is it about summer in the blogging world? Things slow down, take a breather, even if they don't mean to. It's an unexpected mental vacation. I love summer this year, a distinct departure from years past. Certainly, having central air plays a huge roll! The (cozy) apartment... Continue reading

Got this fabric from a lovely little Etsy shop in Japan, I can't stop staring at it, the details, the colors, the cuteness! Every time I buy fabric online, when it comes in the mail it's like opening a present. Wait...is that why I buy fabric online? hm. Continue reading

I mentioned this project in a prior post and started on it last week. With all of the comings and goings of the newest member of the pack, my 'make one quilt square per week' idea went to the dogs out the window. I'm a bit behind, but I do... Continue reading

Things are settling down over here at Casa de Cozy Notions. The kitties are getting used to the pooch, how he jumps up suddenly (um, suddenly for THEM, as they pre-think their movements half an hour in advance) and his happy tail fwapping them in the face. In the meantime,... Continue reading

well, given the ridiculous amount of rain we've had (record breaking, actually), on a scale of 'Fab!' to 'Let's just pave this and call it good', I'd give it a decided...'Meh.' There's the good, the bad and the ugly. Ugly: Bad: Good!: Really good. Really, really good. yum. can it... Continue reading

Just what do we have here? Meet the newest member of the Cozy Notions family! This is Hennessey! What's that? A dog in a 3 cat house? Things seem to be going ok so far. We're still settling in, might be light on the posts this week. Because all this... Continue reading

ok, so I HAVE to know. WHAT do you do with all of your fabric scraps? I have mine in a big bin. It's the only thing I could think of that didn't have me tweaking out in an organizational fit. I could spend HOURS sorting them by size or... Continue reading

This little ottoman from Ikea was desperate for a new look. It's the perfect size, so no need to trade it in, but the cover has seen better days! They don't make this one anymore, so I couldn't buy a new cover... Tooled around and found a slipcover tutorial that... Continue reading

Wow, that was unexpected! I didn't anticipate leaving this space for 6 days straight! Just finishing up 5 days off from work, which, despite the weather, was *very* refreshing! For the first 3 days, I convalesced as I was sick with the same sniffles it seems all of Oregon has!... Continue reading

April showers bring.....uh....June flowers? I started this quilt a little while ago, intending to have it done by May. Eh, life happens, right? The design is a version of the Easy Lap Quilt in Bend the Rules Sewing. I just kind of made it up as I went along, which... Continue reading

Who doesn't love a terrarium? They're cute, compact and practically self sustaining. Well, folks, I have failed at them in the past. Hi, I'm Jessica and I'm a Chronic Overwaterer. ('hi, Jessica!') No more! I'm turning over a new leaf (groan). I have a small collection of tillandsia (air plants)... Continue reading

( Is it proper to say "Happy Memorial Day"? It's not a 'happy' occasion, really. ) How is your Memorial Day treating you? Lots of fun sales out there! Got some good deals on fabric and notions and also did a little online trolling. LOVE LOVE LOVE this American Flag... Continue reading

Oh, I have a stash, alright! My stash of fabric is infamous among my crafty friends. Infamous due to sheer size and the fact that I'm loathe to cut into it! It's been said that I don't actually sew, I just collect fabric. Well! Now that I have space to... Continue reading
