On Saturday nights I try and make time to visit some of my favourite blogs, and also follow links to new ones. This Saturday night I found some really clever tutorials, free designs, and some patterns I purchased, so I thought I'd share the links with you - after all, it's great to be inspired by others!
I recently came across Clara and Jennie's blog, CLOVER & VIOLET. What a friendly and inspiring pair this mother and daughter are! Apart from their free BOM "Garden Steps", they also share sweet ideas that are simple but oh-so-pretty. Below is a tiny granny square that Clara made into a wee pin cushion. I am going to make
one a few of these!
Heidi from Sewing Daisies has really started a buzz with her crochet edged squares! I've seen a number of bloggers are starting their own - I'd love to do this too but can someone lend me a spare couple of months, please?! One day, eh?...
If you'd like to learn another way to crochet around fabric be sure to check out Miss Abigail's tutorial HERE.
I am really going to do this - even bought an awl a little while ago as preparation.
I am LOVING this new-to-me designer! Charlotte Lyons. Her stitchery designs have my heart a beating!
I have bought two of her pre-printed designs to stitch after I finish that sampler I've been working on (see previous blog post). Check out her shop HERE, or just drool over the two I have purchased...
Can't wait for them to arrive!
Bronwyn Hayes is a fellow Aussie designer, and may I also say that she is one of the most generous with her free designs!
Her latest freebie is this really cute Butterfly Stitchery...
Mr E's school holiday break has now drawn to a close, so after taking me for a ride today to Bowen, he's trying to make the most of these last hours of freedom.
Easy dinner - scones and tea like my nana used to do every Sunday night.
Do you have simple Sunday dinners too? If so, what do you make?
Now to iron his shirts, plan his lunches for the week, and get back into the groove of our school term life.
