Linen Fabric and Yarn Projects – Links


Hello dear friends! I hope you are fine and enjoy your crafty projects or other hobbies! I have some new projects going on and it was really nice to start with fabrics after many days.


Even rain was coming, morning began with sunshine and I knew that my garden table will be occupied.


We managed to share the table with Nelli and also Hanna was with us … you see her dark back on the right … and Nero was behind the rose bushes …


I have been planning one new project and today I picked the fabrics and found matching colours from my quilting Perle threads. The beginning front of the window …


Second project or projects are with yarn and hook …

Nelli didn’t move from the sunny spot. You can guess what I have in my mind …

blue linen and sea pottery

This blue linen yarn is my forever favourite! and I love this piece of sea pottery! = most likely this will be my favourite of the new summer jewelry collection!

* Ric Rac is fun and easy to crochet! I hadn’t done it before but remembered that ‘FOXS LANE’ has tutorial for it. That blog is wonderful with lots of colourful crochet inspiration and garden hapiness!

* Diane ‘From Blank Pages’ has always beautiful ideas! Look how lovely pouches she made with fantastic technique! I want to try this!

* One day I was looking for summer blouse tutorials and found “101 sewing tutorials for summer”!!! They are here: ‘Everything Etsy’.

* One link I found from the above link, is for simple summer dress in ‘While They Snooze’ blog.

* We have all admired the quilt theme at the Olympics! That’s is fantastic! ‘Quilt Inspiration’ has a great post about olympic inspiration and Free patterns!
