A few of the wow moments, or things I discover each week that tickle my fancy. I hope that they may inspire or tickle yours too!
I quite like this knitted baby blanket. I love the hounds tooth pattern and the red ruffled edge. It is a pattern which you can find free on Ravelry. It is most unusual I think.
I also think these crochet chrysanthemum dishcloths are really cute. Also found on Ravelry.
I love this little christmas gift box. It's a free printable from Just Something I Made. It would be perfect for those smaller gifts that can be a bit awkward to wrap. I think it's really cute and I love the colours.
Now this is an unusual way to use your Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter and cookies! Flip it upside down and turn it into a reindeer! I love it! Found on Megann's Kitchen. There is no recipe for the cookie, just the icing. But a good gingerbread cookie is not hard to find.
This is a Merry and Bright Garland, with full instructions on the blog, Creative Breathing. This lady doesn't blog any more, but she's left all of her tutorials etc. up for people to use. It's a fab resource really of all sorts of felt and paper crafts.
Is this not the sweetest needle felted scottie dog? I love scottie dogs. My ex mil had a scottie dog named Fergie. He was lovely. This is from the Etsy shop Miss Bumbles, based over here in London.
I could not find a source for this, but I don't think it would be all that hard to figure out. I think he is just about the sweetest snowman I have ever seen and he looks really simple to make!
I think these Christmas coasters are A D O R A B L E. I found it on Flickr.
No instructions, but how hard can they be. They would be a great way to use up fabric scraps.
Cottage Magpie. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. It's red and white. It's polka dots. It's buttons.
What a brilliant idea for a child's advent calendar and it doesn't involve candy! Just some ingenuity and some white pompoms! I love it. Found on Oopsy Daisy. She's got a lot of brilliant ideas on her page for all sorts.
And that's it for this weeks Friday Finds. Lots of Christmasy stuff I know, but it widll be here before we know it. The time to prepare is now! I hope you saw something you can use or which has inspired you to want to create something new!
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
There’s nothing more important
than the small gestures
that allow us to be who we are.
Cooking in The English Kitchen today . . . Pork Chops and Beans. Unusually delicious.
We have the Elder Missionaries coming to us for supper tonight! I am off to start the prep.
