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.

Did you see the amazing phone book dress : and I am truly inspired by these story vignettes ‘sugar boxes’ : and for something totally crazy – the puffy collar pattern : and how to carve a kuksa cup.

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.

Stitching: embroidery pattern – super cute : pillowcase apron : woven picot stitch.

Paper: I loved this faux feather paper wreath : paper doily lanterns : saving sewing patterns - a very handy idea : teacup card : quick sketchbook.

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 .

refashion: leg warmers : and a crossover top for kids.

Thanks for reading and happy crafty week!
