My Friday Finds . . .

A few of the things  I find each week that pique my interest, bring me joy, inspire me to learn, create, do, become . . . maybe they will do the same for you!    
Crochet a block a week Blanket by Sharon Blignaut on Ravelry.  Very pretty. 
Dishfunctional Designs.  Birds on china. Inspiration. Everything is so pretty. 
The High Fibre on Etsy.  Quality hand printed fabric goods, such as flour sack dish towels, etc. 

Grass Harp on Ravelry.  Bethlehem Stars.  

 Love Crochet.  Christmas Tree Garland by Crochet with Kate.  You might want to start this on early. 

Homemade @ My Place.  Granny chain garland.  Great scrap buster! 

Jean Herman on Ravelry.  Christmas Lights garland.  Another scrap buster. Free as well.  


No source, just a novel way of repairing sweaters.  I love this. 


The Do's and Don'ts of Darning.  No source. Is darning a lost art?  I hope not!  

Take Care - Repair.  A photographic tutorial.  

Charlotte L on Ravelry.  Bike Mittens. Great idea! 

Yardage Chart.  


A bit of eye candy only.  Love how the different coloued buttons on the closure, make a plain sweater pop. 

Kate Elizabeth. Tutorial on the Larksfoot Pattern for crochet.

Design Peak.  Simple, yet gorgeous slippers.  

Niki's Homemade Crafts.  Microwave soup bowl cosy. What a great idea.  Sometimes bowls and dishes can be so hot when you are taking them out of the microwave! 

I am so in love with these little embroidered dollies. I can't find a source.  Aren't they beautiful?   


Odd Knit.  Knitted Apples.  

Knitted Toadstools. Merrin Curley. I love these.   

Instructables.  Knitted Fish.  Cute!  

And those are my finds for this week.  I hope there was something of interest here for you! 

A thought to carry with you  . . .

Never be afraid to try something new,
beause life gets boring if  you 
always stay within the 
limits of what you already know.

And I do too! 


  1. Hi, Marie! Oh, my goodness... the blue/white crochet blanket is STUNNING!! That is a lot of work and motifs there--love the blue & white. Oh, how sweet is the china birds necklace--what a clever way to repurose a bit of china. I had that same pattern for the crocheted Christmas Lights garland on my list last year, but didn't get to making... maybe this year! Thanks for the darning link... I've been reading more about how to do that. With doing more hand knit things, it's good to know how to repair things. So many fun craft ideas here today. Your Salmon Pot Pie looks/sounds very tasty--great for Fish Friday. :) Good to catch up with you, my friend... Hope all of you there have a good and blessed weekend ahead! LOVE YOU!! ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

    1. Thanks Tracy. I had wanted to do the Christmas Lights garland last year also, but didn't. Maybe this year as you say! Love and big hugs to you all as well! xoxo

  2. You need those toadstoools..cute cute cute things!

    1. I just need to learn how to knit on four needles Monique! I have tried in the past and haven't yet sorted it! xoxo

  3. Lovely ideas...thank you!!
