A Little Update on Kim & Kris…and The DIY Dish!

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Hi everyone! Wow, the time has just flown since the end of our last season! We really appreciate all of the kind emails people have sent us, asking about the show. We have missed you!

As you may have seen our announcement on Facebook, we are taking a small break from filming new episodes. We’ve had to make room for some exciting projects…and a little bit of life-balance as well. Although you have not seen new episodes of The DIY Dish, there are a few other places you may have seen our projects and what we have been up to!

For example, Kris recently shared a fantastic project on Studio 5! You are going to LOVE the look of chenille blankets with this easy technique she shares! Not into blankets? How about some gorgeous throw pillows using the same technique! Take a look…

We also had a column in the Spring 2012 issue of Where Women Cook Magazine! It is on newstands now.

In the magazine, we share a few things: a delicious quiche made by our friend, Cindy, a small (but darling!) spring project, and….oh…ya…Kris had a FLOOD in her quilt shop this past January! Yes, we share the story behind that, too. Let’s just say that over 3,000 gallons of water in a quilt shop isn’t something to jump for joy about. ;) You can pick up your copy of this gorgeous magazine today! Here’s a sneak peek:Our days have been filled with cleaning, writing patterns, running a quilt shop, grocery shopping,writing a new book that will be in stores, taking kids from here to there and everywhere.  (You get the picture, right?) :)  We’ve also been speaking at a few different women conferences about such things as creativity, balance (still working on that!), bringing beauty into your life and home, etc. We love meeting new friends, learning from them, and of course,  sharing our love for all things DIY.

So when will we be back with new episodes? We don’t have the perfect answer for that, but we hope it will be soon. We can’t wait to share what else we’ve been up to and hope that you will stay around in the meantime.

Our very best wishes,
Kim & Kris
