Other people's cleverness...

Because I'll be absent for Kezzie's wedding over the next couple of days I thought I'd share some wonderful ideas from other clever people to keep you occupied (as if you needed MORE things to try?)...

Have you ever wanted to hone your zipper skills? Jennie from Clover and Violet has a wonderful zipper tute HERE...

Want to dress up your cardy? I love THIS tute!!

One skill I am yet to try is 'quilt as you go', and Maureen Cracknell has an excellent tute to show me how! Check it out HERE.

Do you travel much? THIS travel sewing kit tutorial could be just what you need!

 Need some Christmas ideas? The lovely Val Laird is hosting 'Seven Weeks of Christmas Giving' on her blog, with a free pattern shared weekly for seven weeks! Visit Val HERE.
Now I'd best head back to the craft room as I have a frame to paint red, a stitchery to mount in the frame, a quilt label to attach, and two shortcakes to bake - all today!!
May your own weekend be blessed.
I know ours will be.

Hello Jenny and the rest of your family. Hope that the sun will be shining on the wedding couples and that you also will injoy the day, be careful not to have to many things that you have to do, remember that that day never comes again where your oldist gets married.
Best regards from
