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!

No source, just cuteness overload.  I don't think I could ever bring myself to cut up a quilt like that, however.

Maisy and Bee on Instagram.  She makes the cutest peg dolls.

Nostalgia at the Stone House.  Embroidered pillows.

I had that mug once upon a time. Greengate. Love me some Greengate.  Couldn't find the source for this but I found this  . . . 

Ellis and Higgs. Quilted Petal tutorial. 

Fabric Tea Cup Coasters.  Fab Art DIY. Free Pattern.

Beautiful Spring Time Coasters.  Maize Hutton. No link though. The blog is shut down. Cute embroidered round cotton yarn coasters.

Crochet with Raymond.  Crochet Granny Tea Cosy.

Pattern Center.  39 easy pouches to organize your stuff. Crochet.

Look What I Made. Crochet Pansy Bunting.

Fab Art DIY  Berry Pie Pot Holder 

Wil Tip Top  Summer Nails.

Blogging Perspective.  I should have started sooner, lol  Its too late for me now.  Save yourself!

Again too late.  I guess I have just never been overly concerned about things like this. Perhaps I should have been.

I have always love LOVED this stuff!

Always a handy list to have.

Another handy cheat sheet  . . . 

This could also come in handy.

Craftsy Hacks.

From Britain With Love.  So cute.

Again, no source.

I am not getting much this morning.  I keep hitting dead ends.

Again, I can't help sharing this. Its so cute.

I think its time to give up for this week!  Again, no source!

Cindy and I had a great day together yesterday.  We loaded up the car and headed off to Value Village. It is about 45 minutes or so away from us, maybe even an hour. I had a whole big bag of things to get rid of.  I had a couple of newish blanket. They were slippery. I don't like slippery.  I also had a bedspread and shams, made from that microfiber stuff, which I also do not like.  I had thought it was cotton.

After dropping off all the stuff, Cindy went in and got Dad some books to read.  He is a funny man. He likes to read romance novels.  He doesn't like to read anything else. I have bought him good books, real writing, in the past. He doesn't like or appreciate them. He prefers the trashy novel.

Then we went to the pet store to pick up some Churo treats for the cats.  Michaels. I got some pipe cleaners and some beads but we had a good boo around.  They are bringing in self checkouts there. I hate self checkouts.  I think they will all be self checkouts for the most part soon. YUCK!

Then we went to the Running Man, which is a small Costco outlet.  I got a few bits there.  Bags of unsalted mixed nuts to make my granola. Some jam. I like the Asian frozen Noodles with vegetables and frozen fried Rice. 

We finished off at Jonny's for fish and chips.  Naughty but very nice.  Then we went and put gas in the car, I picked up a prescription and home again, home again, jiggity jig.  Day gone.  But we had so much fun together.  We always send our brother photos of our dinner when we go to Jonny's to make him drool. 

He and his wife just celebrated their 37th Wedding Anniversary.  I remember going to Ottawa for their wedding.  We all flew up from Nova Scotia (mom, dad, myself) and my sister flew up from Windsor. It was such a beautiful wedding.  Love them both very much and wish them many, many more years of happily wedded bliss!

And with that I will leave you with a thought for the day  . . .
