Welcome to Handmade Monday #91. Handmade Monday is a link up, a place for creative bloggers to share their creative projects, tutorials and recipes and a great place for a broswe for some new ideas.
This week was the 5th Blogiversary of Sum of their Stories, it's 5 years that have gone by both fast and slowly at the same time, if that makes any sense! I've got a yarn giveaway to celebrate in partnership with LoveKnitting.com which is super exciting. There are loads of ways to enter so do pop over and have a go.
The other big excitement here in the UK this week is ... Bake Off is back on the tellybox!!
The best thing about the end of the summer is that The Great British Bake Off is back on our screens. We try to have a cake of some sort every week to enjoy whilst we watch, you can't watch all the delicious baking without having something to eat yourself! I gather it's shown in lots of other countries now and some places have their own version too. It really is a bit of a phenomena here, I don't think I know anyone who doesn't watch it!
Right, enough about cake, here are the features from last week's Handmade Monday.
Maya from The Little Treasures makes the most amazing boho jewellery, accessories and much, much more and now and again she shares a tutorial so you can make your own. This is so pretty and would be perfect with the right outfit.
Sandra from Haekelfieber-Austria shared a sweet Bluebeary crocheted toy pattern with us, isn't he cute? Sandra's first language is not English but she's translated the pattern for us, I'd love to give it a try.
I am in love with these artificial coneflowers from Purple Hues and Me, they are just so pretty. They are made from burlap (or hessian as we call it here) and styrofoam balls, isn't that clever?
Congratulations to you all. there is a "YAY I was featured" button for your blog over here if you want to add one to your blog :-)
Handmade Monday has a small but friendly little Facebook group for bloggers who link up their ideas here regularly. If you'd like to join us you'd be welcome. It's not a high pressure, rules filled group but if we come across something that's helped us in our blogging lives we share it in the group.
Handmade Monday is all about building a crafting community, we most definitely are better together, so please do take a moment to visit some of the other projects linked up this week. Share some of your favourites on your social media maybe and leave a nice comment or two.
Let's support one another ^_^
The rules for Handmade Monday are very simple:
Did you make it? Yes - then hooray, we'd love to see it
Add the link to a specific post, not your main blog url
You can link up to 3 posts each week but try to make sure it's not stuff you've shared here before
Mingle - visit some other links - comment - share
If you are not sure of anything more details can be found here
