A Round Tuit 307

Happy  Monday!
Today is the last day of my parent's visit to us from the UK. It's been so good to have them here and as always sad to see them go.

I hope you've all had a good week - I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone's been up to!

------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to this week's linky party. A place where you can link up your posts and creations, and be inspired by others.

Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
 
 
 
Here's my favourites from last week's party:
 
First of all, this gorgeous
 Vintage Sheet Quilt from Busy Being Jennifer.



Finally, this beautiful Slouchy Bag from made by ChrissieD.  I've used this pattern myself and it does make a gorgeous bag!

I'd love if you grabbed the button - then you can have your very own Round Tuit!

A Round Tuit 306

Hello and welcome to another week at Creating my way to Success.
I've only been back from holiday for a week but it feels like much longer. So much going on and so much to catch up with!
I have a picture to share with you of what my daughter made yesterday. She's been a bit sick for the past week and forced to rest - so had time to be a little creative!
She made this turtle all by herself with no pattern! So cute!

I'm hoping to find some time to get back to the blog this week. But for now - let's see what everyone else has been up to this past week.

A Round Tuit 305

Hello! I'm back!
I've just returned from an amazing holiday in Japan. Its taking a while to get organised and back into the swing of things, so sorry this post is a bit late!
I will share more of my trip to Japan this week, but for now here's a quick photo of the stunning Golden Temple in Kyoto!

It's been great to see so many fabulous link ups from the parties when I was away - I've had fun browsing through them and picking out my three favourites (see below).

So now it's time to see what everyone's been up to this past week - let's get this party started!

Japanese sewing and origami





Today we head off on a family holiday to Japan, so I thought this would be a good time to showcase the 'Japanese' crafting I've done over the years - from Japanese style bags, to fabric and paper origami and some Japanese fabric too! Hope you like them!





This is still one of my most popular tutorials. These bags are fairly easy to make and super cute.  

I also made a few of them from upcycled old nighties:


And I also tried out a giant version of this bag.




Some Fabric Origami Boxes, square and triangular.











A Handibag made with Japanese Fabric. (made using this tutorial)






Paper Origami Flowers I made for a friend's daughter.


And finally what I recently learned about Origami and 



I hope you enjoyed these Japanese themed features!

If you're interested in seeing some pictures from our trip - I shall be posting some on Instagram and my Facebook page - so please do take a look!

A Round Tuit 303

Happy Monday!

I'm super excited just now as tomorrow we head off to Japan for a family holiday!
I have previously lived in Japan for 3 years teaching English, but it's been several years since I was last there.
It's going to be great fun to go back and see what's changed and what hasn't - and to show our girls it all and see things through their eyes!
I shall be posting pictures on Instagram and my Facebook page if anyone is interested and will be sure to post about the holiday when I return in a couple of weeks!

But for now - let's see what everyone has been up to this past week.
