My Friday Finds . . .


A few of the things I find each week that inspire me to want to do better, to create, to become better, to read more, to watch, to just DO something! Things that delight, inspire, and bring me joy.  Maybe they will do the same thing for you!  

Ravelry Many Mini's Table Runner. I love this. What fun! Crochet.

Color Me Happy Blanket by Eight by Six. I love Amanda's color choices.

Agnes Garumi.  Daisy Granny Square Pillow covers. What fun!

Paint your own Brick Book Library for outdoors!  What a fab yard/garden decoration.  From Kalumni.

Fish for Friday, but in the form of a knitted hat.  How utterly unusual.  Found on Ravelry.   Talk about a conversation starter!

An apron pocket fashioned from a shirt sleeve.  Cute!  I love it!    I found this on Cutie Pinwheel.

A sweet country table topper.  Love the pattern, using calico prints and whites.  Found on  American Patchwork and Quilting.

I love, Love, LOVE the colours in this blanket.   On my wish list.  From Posie Gets Cosie.

I love this crochet shoulder wrap from Drops Design.  I think it looks quite elegant.

Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I ...
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

Cooking in The English Kitchen today, a simple Olive Oil & Maple Granola. The small batch I love granola and I never buy it. Homemade granola always tastes a bazillion times better and is much cheaper in the long run. 

I hope you have a really nice day today.  I always find Good Friday to be a mix of sad and sweet. I am trying to get the best out of it by listening to uplifting music today, reading uplifting  material and I am invited to Cindy's for supper tonight for homemade meat pie! Yum!  Whatever you get up to, don't forget!
