Friday Favorites 10

Friday, March 11, 2022

Happy Friday! It's time for another Friday Favorites post. This is already my 10th post in this series! I've been enjoying putting these posts together and I hope you're enjoying them too.

- I picked up a bamboo topper for my sewing room cart. It's a cart from ikea, and they recently (I think!) released a cutting board that fits right on top. I'm going to keep my pins and other tools safely tucked away underneath.

- I sowed my first seeds of 2022! I did some winter sowing of rudbeckia, echineacea, and candy tuft. I tried this for the first time last year and it worked great.

- I started a new weaving project this week and I have to give a shoutout to Miss Babs Yowza yarn. It's a huge 560 yard skein of DK, so it's plenty to use for both the warp and weft on a weaving project, which is awesome.

- I've been a long time fan of Helen Dardik's work and she has a new puzzle out, Mushroom Toomuchery*.

- Treated myself to an early birthday gift! This cordless stapler*. I have used the same manual one for many years, but I have trouble squeezing it. I made another piece of quilted artwork (sharing next week I hope), and it felt like a good time to upgrade. It was so much easier to use!

- How cool is Make & Mend's new cashwrap made by Two Hands Design. Makes me what to combine some quilty elements into my woodworking projects.

- Made these Brown Soda Bread Scones from Smitten Kitchen on Wednesday. It was my first time using wheat germ and wheat bran. They turned out really good!

- I went on a little digital pattern buying spree on Etsy this weekend, trying to support some Ukrainian designers. Here are a few of my purchases: this cross stitch pattern bundle*, this crochet pattern*, and this knitting pattern*.

- Dusty enjoying her new litter cabinet!

Have a Great Weekend!

    1. The recipe is at the very bottom of the article!

  2. Thank you for the good idea of supporting Ukrainian artists and their Etsy patterns. A small thing, for us, but hopefully will help them in some way
