All That Free Stuff


There are just so many good ideas in Bloggy Land. I made these wonderful little pincushions from a free design by polka dot pineapple.

The lovely Arlette is impossibly clever at designing all manner of crafty things. Better still, she generously shares her ideas in easy to follow tutorials. Thanks Arlette!

I have been so fortunate to have formed such wonderful friendships through blogging. A big thanks to Kelli and Nora who have sent me some fantastic presents for my birthday.


Delicious goodies, some great reading and other treats from Kelli



A beautiful table runner, foundation project kit, yo-yo project book
and more delish treats from Nora


I have definitely been spoiled by these lovely ladies. Thank you both very much.

  5. You did a lovely job on the pincushions. I also enjoy Polka Dot Pineapple's clever crafts but I missed the pincushion tutorial. Thanks for pointing me in that direction. Katie sent me one, and I've had requests to copy it. Happy Birthday and enjoy your goodies. -Joanne
