Looking for a quick winter project to sew? You’ve found the right spot!
Today I'm participating in the Color My Summer series being hosted by Kojo Designs and Delia Creates . Each day a new color is celebrated with a fun summer project and today my color is "Purple". So, welcome to all of you that are new to "The Cottage Home" - I'm so glad to have you visiting for Color My Summer ! Summer time means picnics, barbecues, and potlucks!

Here's my little way to help you find some of them--check out my sidebar there . . . I'd like you to meet my Blog Crush of the Week.
