A Round Tuit 331

Good morning from Cairns!
Today I'm off to work for my first day as a qualified 'learn to swim teacher' ! I'm excited and a little nervous too! I really enjoy working with kids, and a flexible job in the outdoors suits me perfectly!  

Last week I managed lots of sewing a blogging after my girls returned to school following their school holidays.
I spent some time playing around learning how to make this upright pencil case
I found it tricky, but have finally come up with a version of the tutorial that I can follow - and will share that tomorrow!

I also completed the pincushion I was making for a swap I joined in (will share pictures this week) and did a little more crochet, finishing a new dishcloth just to practice keeping my stitches straight and my tension even!

AND, I added the final touches to the Teddy Trophy for my daughter's school.

So how about you? What have you been up to this 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 cute crochet Dinosaur from Vrolijk by Leen.

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 and my Saturday Spotlight feature post next week.

And I'll also pin each feature to the Round Tuit Pinterest Board.
