Friday Favorites No. 315

If all goes well, this will be my last post before I switch over to my new website. I've spent a lot of time on my treadmill lately, trying to make up for the hours I've spent in this chair working on it. Hopefully you won't really notice much of  a change, since you'll still find me at craftystaci.com. Also, remember if you're following me through Wordpress only, you won't receive future updates from my new site unless you subscribe here. Enough boring computer talk, let's look at pretty things!

Make Winter 2017

If you do any kind of needlework, you know you really can't have too many pincushions. I love how this one from The Family Hearth manages to look like a spool of thread and an embroidery floss card, all at the same time.

I'm fascinated with hand lettering. It's something I haven't been able to master, but this comprehensive collection of links and instructions from Dawn Nicole Designs makes me think it's possible.

Valentine's Day doesn't always have to be about hearts and flowers. This adorable fudge from Hungry Happenings would be a great gift for anyone, even those that aren't into the mushy stuff.

I hate to call it a resolution, but my husband and I made it a goal to start eating more produce. We've already tried some great, and some not-so-great, recipes using lots of vegetables.  The fruit options are pretty limited this time of year, but Dinner at the Zoo found a way to make it work beautifully.

I've been a fan of Spoonflower for years. I wish it was a little more affordable, but I guess I can't complain when I'm getting whatever I want printed on fabric. In fact, I made a memory card wallet for one of my Etsy customers last week with their logo on it using Spoonflower fabric. They also print the backs for the fabric bookmarks I include with each order.

There are lots of talented textile artists sharing their work there, but searching through it can be a little overwhelming. That just got easier with Spoonflower's debut on Etsy. The collection there seems much more curated and manageable to browse. The only question is, which do I need to add to my stash?
