Enjoying The Net.

Posted on | August 15, 2011 | 7 Comments

One of the things I thoroughly enjoy about the Internet, and blogs specifically, is that so many people are prepared to share their wonderful ideas.

This week I have have enjoyed making several items using tutorials from blogs.

The first one is the S’Mitten Quilt from Erin Russek on her blog One Piece at a Time.  I had a trial run using blues and reds in the mittens. I like the end result so now I can make the rest of the blocks. Thank you Erin for a wonderful pattern.

Another blog with lots of ideas is Bugs and Fishes by Laura Howard.  Laura had a wonderful tutorial for felt owls. Thank you, Laura.

Mine is complete and now just needs filling.

Another blog I regularly visit is The House On The Side Of The Hill. Melody often highlights some lovely tutorials for a variety of crafts – especially on the days for The Teddy Bear’s Picnic. Thank you, Melody.

There are so many ideas out there and definitely not enough time!

    I love the colours you used for your owl! Thanks so much for mentioning my blog & tutorial. Would it be okay for me to include your photo in a blog post about the owls people have been making using my tutorial? I would credit you and include a link to your blog. Laura x

    Hello Karen,

    I have to agree the net is a great recource. We won’t mention the time we spend here though, its all in the name of research isn’t it???
    Love the owls and I wonder what the mittens will become.
    Happy days.

  • I like that owl! I’m going to have to go and check it out. Thanks!

  • You have been busy making really cute things. Ditto on the time issue!

    I am always grateful and amazed at how generous people are, without them I would not be quilting today. The internet is the only way I can learn and I would like to add a big THANK YOU to everyone who shares their ideas and tutorials on line.
