Week Ending - January 19

Seven inspiring projects, seven talented makers. Quilting, crochet and baking links to inspire you to create, every day of the week!

Happy Sunday lovely! I hope your week has been kind. We survived birthday week, just - our son in law turned 30 and then last night we hosted an 18th birthday party for our son! Cohen's our youngest so that officially makes us parents of adults, ekkk! It was a fantastic night, but young adults sure make you feel old ;) If only we could bottle their energy and understand their lingo. ;)

I found seven inspiring projects for you this week, so lets go:

  • Lisa from A Spoonful of Sugar released a PDF pattern of her Gifted With Love Pouch. If you're starting your Valentines Day sewing then add this cutie to your list. The design includes a paper pieced heart design and you can fill them with chocolates, gift cards, jewellery or any small gift you want. Really sweet pattern!

  • Another gorgeous idea for Valentines is this Heart Wreath from Amy at the Idea Room. It's made from felt and it's simple and stunning. Amy has put together a video tutorial so you can make your own - I'm going to shop for supplies today so I can make one.
  • Jamielyn at I Heart Naptime has set a challenge to help us expand our social circle. She suggests inviting one family over for a meal that you haven't invited before and she has listed all her Dinner Party Ideas to help with the planning. It is harder to make friends as an adult and this might make it less daunting. 

  • If you're looking for a quick and easy crochet project then give these Easy Crochet Cotton Neck Warmers from Daisy Farm Crafts a try. The pattern is a simple moss stitch and suitable for beginners - great for quick gifts or as an item for stalls etc. 
  • I love these Child-Size Crochet Bandana's from Heidi at Speckless. She also includes tips for making larger sizes and two options for finishing the bandana's. A great project for your yarn scraps that the kids will love.
  • 10 Quilt Piecing Tips and Tricks from Sherri at A Quilting Life is a must read for every quilter. She covers all the basics and she's included lots of links to give you more information to help you one your sewing journey. Awesome post!
  • And lastly, Suzy from Suzy Quilts has a great post on How to Sew Pom Pom Trim to a Quilt. She had a photo tutorial to help you out and you'll want to add pom poms to everything. So fun!

And that's it for another week - lots of projects to inspire a crafty week ahead.

Next week on the blog I'll be discussing Creativity and Mental Health and in Part Three of my Classic Quilt Blocks series I'll be sharing some fun layout options for your Bow Tie blocks.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Happy Week Ending :)
