A Round Tuit 147

I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely weekend. 
We've been enjoying a long weekend with Daddy home so some good quality family time.
I'm also trying to help our eldest daughter practice changing between all 21 gears on her fancy new bike! She and I are participating in our first triathlon in just 9 weeks time, so our training has started!!
Cycling, swimming and running practice together each week! - sometimes it's hard to keep up with a 9 year old's energy!!


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 
patchwork cross pillow from Made with my two hands:
Doesn't it look great? And in the background you can see the quilt she made - the same design but on a larger scale. And all of that was made from businessmen's shirts bought from the op shop! Fabulous!!
Karen has a lovely blog with lots of great recycling and upcycling ideas, so do go and take a look at:

Next, this easy envelope pillow tutorial from Suburb's Mama:
I love simple straightforward tutorials and this is a great one - plus it's the same way I make cushion covers!
Rita has a beautiful blog with lots of different topics and ideas! So why not go and say hello at:

Finally, this cute mini bag from Etcetorize:
I loved the look of this bag so much - I went to her original  adult size bag post and pinned it to try out myself sometime!
Tamara always has heaps of fabulous stuff on her blog, so go and take a look right now!!

For those featured, feel free to grab a 'featured on' button from my buttons page.
Now it's your turn:
Link up your own projects - old or new - no rules - just share your creativity and inspiration!
I'd love if you grabbed the button - then you can have your very own Round Tuit!
And of course we all love visitors and comments so do visit some of the other links!
