Weekend Favorites

Thanks for your nice comments on my sweater post the other day. I’m always so happy right after a big project comes off the needles – I wear it every chance I get! I’ve decided I do want to put pockets on it. I already knit them last night, in fact. I just have to sew them on. That sounds like a job that would be perfect in front of a British mystery with a nice cup of tea. Mmmmm. Think I’ll be cozying up with that tonight.

Around the Web

I spend some time earlier in the week sharing my favorite crafty links through social media. And then I repeat them here on Fridays.

  • Wait Your Turn for the Swings at Boston’s Adult Playground – something cool via CityLab. This is so neat! I hope it’s still here when we visit this exact area next winter. We rarely leave the hotel during those cold February weekends, but this would totally be worth a short brisk walk.
  • Making Rainbows – colorful polymer clay extrusions from Inspire to Create. Ronit Golan makes some pretty rainbow extruded canes (and show you how she does it) but my favorites are the ones with some dark blue mixed in. I’m a big believer in adding contrast to your polymer extrusions.
  • Ultimate Photo Playlist: Songs That Really Click – a list of tunes by Photojojo. Looking through this list of songs about photography and picture-taking, I feel a new playlist coming on…

Have a happy, Autumnal Friday!

  1. I had to go look at the mail embellishments. So cute! I’ve doodled before on mail, but nothing this elaborate. Have a good weekend!

    1. They’re pretty neat! Enjoy your weekend, too 🙂
