Link Love

Remember how I told you all about my gardening plans the other day?  And my new sewing machine a few days later?  Well, I’ve been kind of wrapped up in those things – I don’t have a huge amount of experience with either of them, so I’ve been surfing the web, reading books, trying to learn as much as I can so I can put all my big plans into action.  I thought I’d share some of the websites and blogs that I’ve found useful.  Enjoy!  And by all means, please share any helpful links you may have found as well.

Sewing in a Straight Line – This book looks amazing!  I must have it.  Also, her website is great too.

Tilly and the Buttons – some great info for beginners here.

Keeper of the Home – lots of great home-making ideas here, but I found the Gardening 101 articles to be particularly helpful.

Six Sisters Stuff – a great site for crafts and sewing.  I had this recommended to me by a friend, and I think it’ll be my first sewing project.

Threads Magazine – I just found this one and haven’t had much time to peruse it yet, but it looks like there are some good things here.

Walter Reeves – known as the Georgia Gardener, I have gotten both his flower and vegetable gardening books.  I know this won’t help much if you don’t live in Georgia, but if you do, his site is invaluable.

Pinterest – I can’t stay away from here.  But it is a huge source of inspiration…lots of cool ideas and sites I may not have found on my own.


Hope you all have a great Monday (oxymoronic?), and maybe find some of your own inspiration here…and don’t forget to share!

  1. This is fab, thanks so much for sharing – I bought myself a sewing machine online this evening, having never used one before, so this is perfect timing! Funnily enough, I’ve also had my garden on my list of things to do for the last 2 years – I got side-tracked though when my boyfriend-at-the-time (now husband) proposed, so I obviously had to divert attention and much crafting time to the wedding! The garden’s back on the list now though, along with my knitting, my new sewing machine, and whatever else I add over the coming months… Good luck with all your projects – I look forward to seeing how you get on 🙂

  2. Congrats! Weddings do take a lot of time and attention, but totally worth it! I’m so excited about getting my sewing machine up and running – I’ve put it off until this weekend when I can get my space set up and get some proper supplies. My garden is still in the planning stages, but the link above to the Keeper of the Home has some great articles about how to plan your garden on paper, and that was really helpful for me. I’m super organized and like to be able to see it all laid out before I start any digging. Good luck with your crafting/gardening endeavors as well!

  3. Ummmm…so I love your blog! Thanks for the follow on my blog. I’m following you too, now! Love the recipes. I may have to try the Dobos Torte sometime soon.
