Friday Randomly Sharing

Friday, 2 October 2015

Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to FRS where I share what has caught my eye recently - but where you could also share what has interested you - so please make full use of the comment box!

- Have you heard of the Fold Line? Finally there is a platform to share notes and pictures of patterns we use! Think Ravelry for sewist - at least that is what I understood. If you are a knitter, I am sure  you wondered like me why such a platform never existed for sewists (the Burdastyle community is really not that great - or at least I never used it as a resource). I have now registered  you can see my profile here. Please bear in mind that this is really new - I think it was launched yesterday - and therefore it will only work if we all post our makes. It will take time, but it is going to be worth the effort for this to become as good as Ravelry. 


- More baking over at MiH. The Green Kitchen stories posted a new gluten free wholesome muffin recipe, I just had to try it. I made some changes so that I did not have to do more shopping: I changed roll oats for quinoa flakes, the potato starch for tapioca flour, cardamom for nutmeg; and I just made sweetened apple sauce (with coconut sugar) so I used it. It was delicious and wholesome none the less. Also I made the switch from eggs to chia seeds, and it is wonderful, who knew! I did not make a vegan version - but you easily can by replacing the dairy yoghurt by a vegan version. 

- I just pinned this lovely crochet hat - the ribbing part sounds really interesting, so one of the boys is sorted. The other one will get a knitted hat - this one specifically... At what age will they tell to go away and wear my own knits? 

- The crossroads of should and must - so inspiring. I saw the video, but this is the written script (search for Elle Luna)

- The new pattern from Aime comme Marie is called Aime comme Majestic. I think I like it -  in fact it would  be perfect for my work wardrobe - this version made me like and dislike this pattern at the same time (note she is pregnant...).

- Free acorn crochet pattern - I am in! Autumn I am coming to capture you! You could also go for a walk and get some conkers for this DIY

- Love this story about running a second-hand shop

- I love the idea of styling nature in the home - I am not sure I will send a picture to enter (I have no space for that prize), but my house could really do with a jar full of feathers. 

- I loved reading Felicia's commitment to Slow Fashion October. It totally made sense to me and my own path to sustainability. 

- I keep hearing about Periscope - here is a guide on how to use it, maybe I will try it. 

- This refashioned denim shirt - just whoah (although there is no tutorial, such a shame. But I will keep an eye out for it!)


That was my list, what has caught your eye lately?

  1. I havent joined the fold line as yet, you've convinced me! Would be so brilliant to have a ravelry type space for sewing.

  2. The crossroads of should and must was a great read! I love those inspiring words. My difficulty is what my 'must' is exactly. Maybe I need to meditate on that. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I saw that video for the Crossroads of Should and Must, and now I desperately want to read the book! It was so inspiring. And that's so cool that there is a ravelry for sewing, that makes total sense! I bet it's an addictive rabbit hole, just like ravelry... ;)

  6. I have imaginings of flattering a expert pastry chef and having a slight bakery - that's how much I like baking. I love to cook in overall, but my heart lies in puddings. best websites to buy essays
