Friday Finds . . .
A few of the things I find each week which pique my curiosity or inspire me to want to do something, create something, cook something, or become a better person! I hope they will pique your curiosity or inspire you in some way as well!
Old Fashioned Paperback Book Cover. A free crochet pattern from Oombawka Design.
Cosmetic Zip Pouches, made using only 2 fat quarters of fabric. From Polka Dot Chair.
I love this craft bag. I might make myself one of these to take to the hospital with me when Todd is having his treatments. From Sew Sweetness, a free pattern.
How to remove permanent marker from every thing.
Store and organize board games in a shoe organiser. Brilliant!
This is so cute. A Christmas Tree Cheese Ball. From The Girl Who Ate Everything.
DIY Rosemary Wreath Placecards. From Tesco Living.
Painted Confetti Dish Towels. From Dandee.
Decoupage Hangers. You need wooden ones for this. So pretty. From Prima.
Pretty pillow cases from Decor 8. I love pretty pillow cases.
A rag quilt tutorial. From Fleece Fun.
Shirley Temple anyone? I have always wondered how to make one. From Culinary Hill.
From Ravelry. Christmas Balls Ornament set. Not free but not expensive either. Maybe for next year. I can't decide which one is the cutest.
How to make mittens from an old sweather. From Good Homes Designs. Sweet.
From Pulling Curls. Real Tips for real families. I don't know anyone who could use this. I am always looking to be more organised. It's my artsy craftsy self who is totally disorganised.
And those are my finds for this week. I hope you found something of value that you can use. I find lots more than this, but these are things I think you just might like. I hope that you did!
I finished it. And I have another one sketched. You are the first to see it. I called it "Bringing Home the Tree." And I have another one started. I went upstairs yesterday afternoon to go to the loo and ended up in the craftroom and sat down and just started sketching. I was lost in my own little world and didn't even notice it getting darker until Mitzie came up and nudged me to tell me it was time to get her supper. That's what it is like when you are in the depths of creation. Everything else disappears except for what is springing out of your fingertips . . .
A thought to carry with you . . .
"Our Heavenly Father’s plan
contains the ultimate
expressions of true love.
All that we hold dear, even our families,
our friends, our joy, our knowledge,
our testimonies, would vanish
were it not for our Father and
His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ."
~Thomas S Monson
That is the greatest gift of all.
Have you got time to bake one more Christmas Cookie? I hope you do. These Italian Christmas Biscotti are fabulous! Buttery little soft sugar cookie pillows of delight. Recipe in The English Kitchen today.
Have a great Friday! Don't forget!
