Sorry for the slowdown over the weekend – my internet connection was doing some crazy slow things and so I was unable to log on – and my lovely in-house IT assistant (ie. husband) was away – so I just had to muddle through. But despite lack of posts on sunday the rest of the week was fabulously creative. I wanted to start this weeks newsletter with this youtube video on Christian the lion – the story of a lion cub adopted by two young artists in London in the 70′s and then released to the wild – very moving.
For the kids: What art supplies can you not live without? : gum wrapper folding : felt mushroom : do-si-do book - clever and great instructions : lino printing : and a something for the garden – a pinecone bird feeder.
Yarn: hula hoop weaving - this looks so fun : felt earrings pattern : cute crochet covered rock fish : amigurumi lessons : crochet lipbalm cosy : and don’t miss this book review on this fabulous knitting book – boutique knits .
Thanks for reading and happy crafty week!
