Welcome to Handmade Monday no 301. Handmade Monday is a link up for handmade crafts and recipes. Creative bloggers can share their tutorials and ideas and we can all be inspired.
I know in the US you are all gearing up for Thanksgiving now. We don’t celebrate that here in the UK. I guess the closest is Harvest Festival but that’s not a big thing and usually just involves schools and churches collecting food donations for local food banks. We celebrated Bonfire night last night, the 5th November. That’s all about bonfires and fireworks and Guy Fawkes not blowing up the houses of parliament in the 1600s, and we’ve had a lot of Diwali celebrations recently. Now we are just in the wind up towards Christmas, it feels like the TV Christmas advert floodgates have been opened. I cannot confirm but I may have spent an afternoon with my crochet watching a sappy Christmas film on one of those 24 hours Christmas film channels already!
Now let’s take a look at the features from last week’s Handmade Monday. Click through on the photos to see the original posts.
Please remember if you want to pin any of these ideas please make sure you click through via the photo to the original project.
Kristie from Love my Little Cottage has painted some beautiful wood slices.
Ulrike has created this amazing lino cut, so much more detailed than any lino cut I’ve ever done. It’s definitely making me what to try this craft again! Plus the subject matter, books and tea is right up my street!
This little bobbly crochet pumpkin is adorable. It’s a free pattern from Maya from The Little Treasures.
