Hats off to us ALL...

picture by marthad
Adam alone in Paradise did grieve
And thought Eden a desert without Eve
Until God pitying his lonesome state
Crowns all his wishes with a lovely mate
Then why should men think mean, or slight her
That could not live in Paradise without her.
From a 17th Century Embroidery Sampler.
(Guess
which book I'm reading at the moment...?)


Aren't women great...? Gals all over the place are doing very nice things.

Melanie is giving blogging folks a discount in her shop. She's a lovely gal.

I met Hannah today (she came to a purse frame class) and she's a lovley gal, too! Make sure you visit her, especially on her Tutorial Tuesdays. Lots of lovely tutorial links.

Jodie... well she's just too clever.... and she shares her ideas generously.

Speaking of tutorials - I really want to try these ideas....
Tutti-Fruitti pins
Hoppo-Bumpo / Maya*Made Stenciling. (In fact Maya has a few tutorial treasures...).
Bell girl inkjet printing
...Lately I have this real yearning to start crocheting, thanks to Lara and her perpetually moving hook....

Life is definitely too short to fit enough crafting in. Thanks to all the lovely generous gals out there.... you're an inspiration!

Gosh, isn't Maya's chair beautiful? Now I know what I'm really aiming for, with my freezer paper malarky!

I love the links to Belinda's shrink plastic pins and Bellgirl's printer fabric. And Lara's crochet is inspirational!
