We are a super friendly bunch here and most who join are ready, willing and able to come by and visit your blog, leave a comment, share on some sort of social media etc. Sometimes leaving a comment can be a problem though, it seems to depend on what platform you are using. One of our members was kind enough to let me know last week that she can't always leave a comment when she visits some sites. (name/URL isn't an option on the drop down list apparently) Just bear that in mind, no comment doesn't always mean no visit!
What have you been making this week? I've just treated myself to a subscription to Mollie Makes magazine (there was an offer, I couldn't resist!) so I had fun trying out the little mini weaving kit that came with the March issue.
It was all very fiddly so I'm not sure I'm going to suddenly become a weaver but it was fun to play with. I actually know 2 amazing young weavers whose work is well work checking out if you are interested Woven by Laurence and Sophie Graney. What they do is worlds away from my little wall hanging and they both have Instagram feeds full of beautiful inspiration.
Here are the features from last week's Handmade Monday, this week it's all about learning new skills.
There is nothing quite like having an expert show you exactly how to do something properly - for example this clear tutorial from Made by ChrissieD on joining diamonds for your quilt making or patchwork. Just check out her perfect points!
Have you ever made a purse or bag with a purse frame? I've always thought it would be complicated but Tea and a Sewing Machine takes us though the steps, I think I could actually do this!
