Narrow down time & a very useful link

Happy Royal Friday!!

Friday at last, and not just an ordinary Friday, but the Royal Wedding Friday.!!! Are you celebrating somehow? I know that in U.K. today is a bank holiday {lucky lucky guys--3day weekend:)}. But what I loved the most from this whole experience, is the inspirational crafts that have been featuring all over the blogland this week!!! 

Like this quilted flag Lily has made over at Lily's Quilts.  Isn't it awesome??

or this cozy pillow from Julie over at Less than Perfect Life of Bliss. She also has a tutorial on how to make this cutie!!

p.s. Fish Chris would you like it for your sofa?? hehehe


Anyway to return to my ordinary life, I've narrowed down my favorite projects for Mother's Day to 4 or 5 or maybe a bit more. 



I was thinking that I should definitely give the mug rug a try!!! Thank you Sarah for opening my eyes and providing me with the most useful link Mug Rug Madness from Two more seconds


And now about this useful link, while I was browsing the net the previous days, I stopped by this wonderful blog Chasing Cottons.  Rebecca has started a free online quilting class 101 for beginners!!! Needless to say that all you ladies are awesome quilters, but for a beginner like me, this is a quilter's paradise!!! She posts her lessons every Wednesday, and she is already on Week 4---Sewing, fact which means that I have a lot of reading to do!!!

Well, I'm off to watch a live broadcast of the Royal Wedding!!!


Hope you have a Happy Friday and a sew lovely weekend:)



 




p.s. I have a new signature!!! yippe!!
