Our anniversary day was just lovely. Thanks for those wonderful hugs and best wishes!
The Hobbit was brilliant, and afterwards we just chilled out at home in the air conditioning as it was a scorcher outside.
I spent a little 'me' time roaming some blogs through the evening and thought I'd share these two clever tutorials I found on my travels...
HERE is a great one showing how to make this travel sewing kit...
....and over at Tea Rose Home, Sachiko shares her tutorial for a sweet felt cathedral window pincushion or coaster HERE.
I thought both of these would be good for learning new skills, so I'll try to make time next month and give them a go. What about you?
Remember my "Moment to Shine" blog post back in November?
You can read it HERE if you missed it.
Sharon over at Lilabelle Lane had the same thought and recently threw out a challenge to herself, and to anyone like her, to refrain from buying fabrics for the next 6 months. It's her Fabriholics Anonymous challenge, and you can read all about it HERE on her blog.
There is a growing movement in 'crafty blogdom' lately to use what we have and not mindlessly accumulate more fabric than is sensibly needed.
For myself, I'm enjoying 'shopping' from my own fabric shelves these days!
When we moved I was able to go through all I had and gave some to charity, just leaving myself with fabric I really like and want to make something with.
I wrote notes to remind myself why I bought some of those materials, and plan to make those projects a reality in the next year or so.
That's what's ahead in my blog next year. Maybe I'll inspire you to do something similar?
have a blessed day,
