A Round Tuit 176

Good Morning from Cairns!
I can't believe that this school term is already a quarter of the way over. An 8 week term really isn't long enough!
One of the things I'm determined to get "A Round To" this term is sorting through my recipes.
I love all those free magazines you get from the supermarket with lovely looking recipes in, and always pick them up, look through them....then put them in my cupboard.

I've been feeling lately like we've become stuck in a rut with the meals we're having, so it's time to search through these magazines, find those tasty recipes AND MAKE THEM! It'll also be a chance to clear out my recipe cupboard, by getting rid of the bulk of the magazines and saving just the tasty recipes in my special book!
Do you try new recipes often? or find yourself eating the same things over and over?
I'll be sure to share anything tasty I find and make!

But for now - let's get to this week's party.


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 fun 
monogram thread holder from Mellywood's Mansion:
I LOVE this idea and want to try and adapt it for something for my own house. Not sure what yet...
Mel always has heaps of great ideas on her blog - so do go and take a look at:

Next, these fun eyeball candle holder jars from So Here's My Life:
This looks like such a fun activity to do with kids - the perfect Halloween craft!
Michelle has lots more fun ideas on her blog, so why not head on over to:
So Here's My Life

Finally, this gorgeous crochet lamp makeover from E Strea Chikitu:
This blog has some beautiful crochet projects and ideas, so head on over to:

    1. Thanks Judy - you have a lovely week too!

  2. What a great idea for storing/displaying thread. Love joining in to A Round Tuit. Always a list of tuits to get finished. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks Joy! That thread holder definitely is popular! You have a great week too!

  3. I'm about to head out for groceries this morning Jill and am going to do the same, go through some of those recipe books I hold on to. I'm not much of a menu planner but think I might go back to it. Helps to be a little more organised at meal times. thanks for the party. xx

    1. We had our first 'new' meal last night Anne, and it was scrummy! A new one to add to my repertoire! Still a massive pile of magazines to go through though, it may take some time!

  5. Thanks for hosting! This is my first time linking up here, but I've added your button to my blog so I'll be back for sure :)
