A Round Tuit 272

Happy Monday from Cairns!
 (although I know some of you haven't yet reached Monday)
We had another busy weekend with our kids sporting and school activities, but from now till the end of the year things are calming down and we're looking forward to some relaxing weekends spent at home in the garden!

On the blog, I've started my new project of getting prepared nice and early for Christmas by finding eco- and budget friendly crafting projects. Last week I started with Stockings and made some cute Magnetic Christmas Wish List Stockings for our fridge - so everyone can now start thinking of ideas for Christmas presents!

This and every week until Christmas, I'll be looking at a different theme and sharing more projects and tutorials! I hope you'll stop by often and check them out!

I've also just spent time updating My Free Sewing Tutorials Pages.

 I am now sharing over 100 free tutorials, each of which as a free downloadable PDF version too!
To check them all out - go here.

So - how about YOU? what have you been up to this past week?  Let's get this party started and find out!


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 crochet and sewing 
Peacock Butterfly Bag from Happy in Red:

For those featured, feel free to grab a 'featured on' button here.

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!
By linking up here you're giving me permission to use photos from your post in features here on my blog.
I will feature my favourites on this post next week.
