An Update.

his&her christmas stockings// a little late to sharing+blogging.Happy Tuesday afternoon to you all! As I mentioned last week, one of my goals for 2013 is to focus more on sharing my creations here on the blog. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you probably have a pretty good idea of how much I love Instagram (I'm @canoercreations) -- especially the pretty filters & quick+easy sharing. It really is one of my favorite ways to share little snapshots into my everyday life, but I've found my DSLR+blog seem to get neglected. So here's to 2013! Ready to see what I've been working on?

his&her christmas stockings// a little late to sharing+blogging.
Hopefully you aren't completely over the holidays because I'm pretty excited to share these his & her stockings with you! Using the "quilt as you go" technique (QAYG) I stitched these two stockings up using a fresh combination of greens, pinks, and grays. Who says you have to stick with the traditional red & green for Christmas! I'm really looking forward to using these for years to come. You can read more about them here.

Another goal for the New Year is to finish it and I'm on a mission! So much so that I finished 3 quilt tops in the first week of January. One of which is this granny square quilt I started almost a year ago. I'm looking forward to sharing my finish it progress this year! If you'd like to join me, hop on over to Twitter & Instagram and tag your pictures with #finishit2013. Let's inspire each other!

something new// toe up socks!
Most of my projects shared here on the blog are sewing & quilting related but everyone once in a while it's nice to try something new! Inspired by Amanda of Hey Porkchop! I've started knitting a sock using the book called Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson. I'm using this pretty indigo yarn that has specks of glitter -- love it! I'm enjoying this little knitting project so much that I've already picked out yarn for the next two socks. 

Talk soon!
xo, megan. 


  1. I love the stockings! Great colors and love the QAYG method-that may a great way for me to learn.
    I have been following the other finishes on FB...love them!

  2. fun fun! and yes, I need you to blog more, especially about those damn socks and why you've been keeping it a secret that you know how to knit socks.

  3. I *love* these stockings! When I first saw the sneak peek of them, I already had them pinned/tagged/whatever as todos-for next year. They're just so damn great.

    I should not be this excited about piecework Xmas stockings. But there it is.

  4. I love the stockings AND all of your quilt projects. Can you pin your stockings on your Pinterest board? Looking forward to more fun stuff in 2013!

  5. I was so excited to see your stockings as I am making stockings too!!
