Weekends are already so hectic here, with kids sport and activities taking up the whole of Saturday morning – school working bees or cleaning the house filling in the remainder of Saturday – which leaves only Sunday to get anything done – gardening, mending, general household maintenance – when is a girl supposes to craft?

Anyway just received the latest mixtape zine in the mail – and there is a little article from me in there about crafting with kids – love the cover and there is a handy little pullout calendar too. Also Ina sent me this link to Melanie Falick books – where Larissa – author of the fab book knitalong is organising a charity knitting event.

Here is the lowdown of the good stuff from this past week at whipup:

I loved this mother helping out her artist son : and these knitted corset chair covers are fantastic – there is a pattern too : contributor Kelly sent in this article on an easy way to make your own fabric labels : craftzine shares how to organise your families activities : mrXstitch – is my blog of the week : and the marble champ quilt pattern has got to be my pattern of the week.

Just for fun: Ann Wood shares her horse making technique : mmm homemade body scrub – good enough to eat : and something to eat – homemade pasta : crochet a merfish necklace.

recycle with flair: candy wrapper belt: sleeves to capris so clever.

babies: tie motif bib – very cute : puzzle patches bib is fantastic : make a sitting cat or bunny softie .

just because you need it: patchwork button pouch : laptop sleeve : patchwork lampshade : book review – sew what bags! : sew a placemat zipper pouch

Well I am off to enjoy the last sunshine of May and sneak in some weekend sewing – happy crafty weekend!
