Fun Pinterest Finds

Pinning Frenzy

So what do you do when you’re stuck at home with sick children and don’t feel that crash hot yourself? Head to Pinterest of course! I thought I’d share a few of my recent discoveries.

These first three are from Svetlana Sotak’s boards.

I’ve had a go at sashiko but hadn’t thought to use a green thread – this one ended up in my Gifts board too.

Did you know that the name Debra (and that be me) means “bee”?

Then I found this cushion on Gina Martin’s boards – this is definitely going onto my Gifts board.

She put a message on the back too for the sewing-fail days.

Mini quilts are catching my eye too at the moment and this one from Tessa Marie as everything I like – colour and text!

Then I went on a bit of a fitness tangent and pinned some fitball exercises.

Once I got over that I was back to fabric. A stitchery pattern from Mollie at Wild Olive.

So now I feel inspired to start 10 new projects and had a dig at fashion while I was at it. Here’s the link to my boards and I’d love it if you shared your Pinterest board link below so I can follow you too.
