Things that caught my eye!

Over the course of a couple of weeks each month I take note of some interesting and clever ideas and projects I come across on the web, and then I get all excited sharing them with you!
People are so talented and creative, and what a blast that we can access their ideas through blogs and websites! I know it's making my Christmas gift making a lot easier...

Embroidered To-Do List
Allison has a tutorial for this fantastic to-do list! It is embroidered, then framed. You replace the glass in the frame and use a whiteboard marker to fill in your lists! I know this is going in some Christmas stockings...
Visit her tutorial HERE.

Vintage Styled Message Board
I *love* boards, so when I saw Jaime's vintage inspired message board I was in message board heaven.
So easy to make, and soooo pretty!!
Visit her tutorial HERE.

Jaime also has an easy tute for this neutral themed wreath. Hers is for autumn, but imagine it for Christmas? Gorgeous.
See HERE for the tutorial.

Crochet Bunting
Something different for Christmas decorating? Don't you love this crochet doiley bunting?! 
Mix the doilies with fabrics in colours you've chosen for Christmas and you have something vintage and so *you*.
You'll find this and many more ideas HERE at  Crochet Concupiscence!

Double Hexie Pillow
Kerri from Lovely Little Handmades shared the loveliest tutorial the other day for a double hexie pillow!
Next year I will spend a day making this for myself...
Check it out for yourself HERE.

Birdie Brown
How cute is this little birdie stitchery?! Visit Birdie Brown HERE to download it.
I can see it stitched on soooooo many things...

Felt Mouse Tutorial
Bronwyn Hayes is at it again! This time she has a tutorial for a wee felt Mouseling!

Cups on a Tea Towel
Kerryanne English is the best shabbylicious lady I know, and she shows how to put together a sweet tea towel HERE on her blog!

Well there you are my friends - lots of lovely things to see and make. 

PS: Prayers for all those affected by the super storm in the USA. {{{{hugs}}}
