Today I am working from home – I have a sick little boy and have been up and down with him all night – I slept in the spare bed in his room so I could pass the sick bucket to him when needed. This morning I woke with a neck cramp, chickens at the back door, a warm cat and a lovely cup of coffee. I have also finally started actively using Twitter, (thought these quilts on craftster were amazing) Nicole set up an account for whipup ages ago and now its actively being monitored – follow whipup on twitter here – read this article at croqzine about the benefits of twitter for your business.
Featured posts this past week include this article about Rosa Pomar’s designs being ripped off : these finger puppets look fun and easy to knit : I love Lizzie Buckmaster Dove’s work : sort of obsessing over the whole field bag thing - how to make it and what to put in it : did you see Jodi’s upholstered selvedge chair – amazing : I also really dug the paper telephone sculpture : and did you catch the cardboard cities - must make one of these with the kids : and the paper dolls knitted t-shirt is so fantastic – perhaps my highlight for the whole week.
Other tutes featured this week: love the stuffed donkey : the giant granny square : the fabric lunch bag : the ashlar crochet cardigan is very sweet : adjust your dressform for accurate sewing : zippered felt pouch tutorial was very clear : mikes easter crafts roundup will get you started on your easter crafting :
Once again thanks for reading and happy crafting everyone!
Thank you Nicole
