Howdy Y'all! I just wanted to direct you to our two awesome stops this week for the Texas Roadtrip QAL, Austin and College Station. Sorry I'm late sending you over to Amanda's blog at What the Bobbin for her amazing and funky Austin block, but if you haven't already checked it out then you must read all out Austin and her the inspiration behind her block.

Texas Roadtrip QAL - Quadrant 4 Download

Howdy! Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! We kept it pretty quiet here in anticipation of our big move in the next week or so. I did refinish our kitchen table and it's on it's 4th coat of polyurethane. I used the same stain (Jacobean) that I did for my vintage sewing table and really loving it! I'll be sure to share pictures once we are in the new house!
