A few cool things to end the week with …

Grosgrain is ending their month of free patterns with something from me – head on over to check it out – and they wrote some really nice things about me too ;) Thank you Kathleen! Be sure to check out the rest of their month of free patterns and meet some very cool bloggers at the same time.

Parent map featured one our guest contributor tutorials (Marcie from mossymossy) on their 15 homemade gifts that kids can make for teachers roundup.

Make sure you check out this Etsy video – a portrait of a village in Cyprus where the women have been practicing a regional tradition of lace-making since the 15th century. It was recently nominated to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Element collection, but the skill is dying out…. and the famous Lefkaritika lace is being replaced by imported machine-made replicas to meet the demand of tourists. Read a bit more about ithere.
