After today's post I'll be absent from the blog until Friday 17th so I can enjoy those precious few days next week when my girls visit, and also get ahead over the weekend with grocery shopping, meal preparations, and healthy baking before their arrival.
But in case you're in need of things to do while I'm 'away', here's a wonderful variety of free projects I found!
I'm not too great at crochet but I can't stop going back to look at Annette's gorgeous vintage crochet hanger tutorial on her My Rose Valley blog.
She makes them look easy, but are they easy enough for me?
I love the Sawtooth Star block and intend to make this gorgeous quilt pattern from Honey Bear Lane very soon.
Camille Roskelly has the cutest mini quilt pattern HERE on her blog.
Or just click on this photo in the left hand sidebar for the pdf to open and then save it to your computer...
Long before I taught myself surface embroidery I used to cross stitch. In fact, I taught a few of my children to cross stitch as well (including a son).
This little stocking sampler caught my eye recently and reminded me I should return to drafting a small pattern of my own that I'd started last year. But in the meantime, this is really lovely and I might just consider making it for next Valentines.
It's winter here in Australia, though it's yet to find it's way up here to the tropics.
However, even if I don't need it, I want to make one of these sweet draught stoppers!
They'd work really well as a door stop if I fill them with cat litter or sand.
Have a lovely week everyone!
See you on the 17th,
