Daily Spotlight: Follow the White Bunny

I’ve sort of already featured Nicole in my post on &Stitches (which, in what I think is an eminently sensible decision, will be putting the magazine on hiatus and focusing on the blog/social media). But Nicole’s work at Follow the White Bunny is so lovely, I just wanted to give her a post of her own! Most importantly, she’s offering a free embroidery pattern at the moment, so I highly recommend you hop over there and check it out (see what I did there?)

Daily Spotlight: The Simple Things

The Simple Things is one of my favourite magazines at the moment – it’s such a feel-good read! The only problem is, it’s not always easy to get hold of (I’ve actually started reading it online). The blog is lovely little fix, with extra articles that didn’t make the magazine. Even better, they’re currently holding a competition to win a subscription!

Today is one month until our wedding! I’m getting excited now – and you can rest assured I will be very busy sewing this weekend.

But more of that later.

Daily Spotlight: &Stitches

If you love embroidery, you’ve probably heard of &Stitches. If you haven’t, it’s a gorgeous online magazine by the very talented ladies from Polka&Bloom and Follow the White Bunny.

Even though the magazine is really affordable, I know that there are times when even a few dollars is too much. That’s why it’s so great that Carina and Nicole have brought their curating skills to the blog, with lots of lovely features  of great embroiderers, as well as articles on stitches and more. It’s definitely worth a peek – and don’t be surprised if you end up wanting the magazine as well!

Daily Spotlight: sew and so

Image

This blog is really close to my heart. Becky and I started making our dresses at roughly the same time. Of course, she’s almost finished, while I’m yet to start the real thing (and her wedding is after mine!). Despite that, seeing how beautifully her dress has turned out has been a big inspiration for me – and the process has been really interesting. It’s great reading, even if you’re not planning to sew a wedding dress.


Daily Spotlight: Swedish Embroidery blog

I’ve been missing my blog lately! But at the moment I just don’t have the time to create proper updates. So I thought I’d do a little series looking at some of my favourite blogs – not just embroidery and sewing, but other craft, cooking, design and more.

Today’s spotlight: Med Nål Och Tråd

Now, obviously I don’t speak any Swedish, so I can’t speak to the content of this blog. But the embroidery? So gorgeous. It cheers me up every time I see it. I love her use of colour, and it makes me so keen to play around with some felt appliqué!

Just a quick one for today, but I’ll be back with more tomorrow. If there are any blogs out there you think I should check out, let me know in the comments!
