Category Archives: FRIDAY FOLLOW



Well, guess what? It’s Friday and it looks like it’s time for Friday Follow, and even more amazingly, I am on time for once!!

So, who have I followed this week?

I have followed

A great creative blog here with the emphasis on sewing, sewing tips and advice etc. Look forward to seeing what will be made next!

My favourite post? I love this apron, the photos, the how – to – guide. It makes me want to get out my sewing machine again!


And who has followed me?

Knitting, Crochet, Sewing, lots of crafty happiness here. Quite a new blog I think, but one I will definitely be following in the future!

My favourite post? I love this Broomstick Lace Scarf…the colours and the pattern!


Have a good weekend everyone!

I know it is Tuesday, but this week has been offline completely! A little late but here it is!


So who have I followed this week?

I have followed

There’s crochet, craft and food…all good things! If you haven’t already, head over there now and spend an hour or two – lots of ideas and inspiration to be had 🙂


My favourite post? This one: How to make an easy bag for the beach…I know it’s getting cold here now but we can dream on for next year right?!


And who has followed me?

This blog has some lovely crochet goodness in it! Free patterns, cute ideas (loving those crocodile stitch baby boots!) and it looks like there will be lots of crochet to come!


My favourite post? This one definitely because…there is a link to a free minion scarf pattern! Oooooohhhhhh…


Have a happy Tuesday and remember…only 3 more days till the weekend!




This is the first in a new series of posts called Friday Follow. (Yes, I know it’s Thursday today…it’s called organisation and pre-planning!).

I will look at 2 things in these posts.


First, a blog which I have followed recently and second, a blog which has followed ME recently.

So, First up. Who have I followed?


This week I have followed

I really like the mix of posts and the style of writing, as well as the whole ethos and attitude behind it. The focus is on living a good and honest life away from the stress and panic of the rat race, there are posts about earning a living from home, growing your own, self-sufficiency etc.


My favourite post? I would have to say this one… which has a good list of links for making money from home…especially like the writing ones!


And who has followed me recently?


I love the bright, cheerful pictures on this blog – they make me very happy! There are posts on bread-making, gardening, flowers – lots of flowers! – Making and baking, sewing, local wildlife…all sorts! And they are long posts, so obviously a lot of time and effort has gone into each of them.


My favourite post?  I think I will definitely have to try the yummy looking Apple Cake recipe! And parrots in your garden? How lucky!


There are so many good blogs around, it is difficult to keep up with them all. There just isn’t enough time in the world to read every one of them unfortunately. But each week I will try to share 2 with you that I particularly like.
