Aren't these lovely?!


Once again I've taken some time to browse the internet for clever and inspiring ideas from other bloggers that I can share with you...

If you're a seaside lover, you might like to make THIS free seahorse cushion from the Matsutake Blog...

AnaZard has made a beautiful use of her leftover selvedge edges in this simply sweet needlebook. I'm all inspired to make one of my own now...

Dottie Angel always finds a unique way to display doilies, and this one is her best yet. All you need are little pots of plants and a nail to hang them on - and doilies of course!

Do you make dolls? Ulla of Ulla's Quilt World has shared this free pattern and tutorial to make her pretty little Angel Doll...

Do you love all things British? I do, and especially Union Jack stuff, so THIS tutorial from Lily's Quilts for a Union Jack tea cosy is going to be made!

If you really do like Union Jack type projects, you can follow my own tutorial for a raw edged Union Jack cushion from 2010...

A year later I made another one in pretty shabby chic colours, this time with folded edges...

And finally this week, something yummy to eat!
How about a very quick and simple Cinnamon Bun in a mug?
This is definitely on the menu this week. 
The recipe can be found HERE.

Enjoy your Saturday!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
