5 Friday Finds #40

this post contains affiliate links

Hello! How has your week been? 

It has been a busy one around here, I am always so surprised how quickly Friday rolls around! 
I am feeling quite organised that I have managed to get a Friday Finds post up on a Friday!  That hasn't happened for a while. :) 
I'm hoping next week that I'll have lots of newsy posts to get up here, lots of new things in the shop and I have been making lots of things for the up coming market season that I'd like to share with you all. 

Anyway, today my 5 Friday Finds from Etsy are here ! 
Enjoy! 
---------------------------------------------------------


1. Michelle Robinson from PoppyandBliss has done it again with this gorgeous geometric pattern made using tunisian crochet.  I'm loving the colours, and I have been wanting to give tunisian crochet a try, so here is the perfect project fro me! :) 

-------------------------------------------------------


2. EEchingHandmade is the shop of a very talented doll maker named Kho Tain Ching, I just love these amazing characters! Have a look in her sold section to see how clever she is and for lots of gorgeous dolls that have found new forever homes.  She must have trouble keeping her shop stocked as I think new dolls would be snapped up pretty quickly! :) 
-------------------------------------------------


3. I love the range of laser cut buttons for sale at katrinkles, Katy Westcott's shop is full of very cute buttons like these leaves, that can have simple embroidery added for a lovely touch. :) 
----------------------------------


4. These rainbow spotted bowls from  Baskakova caught my eye, I do have a soft spot for colourful ceramics! Anna Baskakova is the talented ceramicist from London who makes these lovelies! :) 
--------------------------------------


5. Speaking of colour, I love the slightly retro feel to the colours in this print found at hillarybird , the shop of illustrator Hillary Bird.  There are lots of other gorgeous prints to check out in this beautiful shop! :)

That's it for today! 
I hope you have a lovely weekend and do something that makes you happy. :) 
Talk soon!

  2. I love that cushion too! I spend ridonkulous money on a UK copy of Simply Crochet a little while ago which came with a tunisian crochet hook so I'm busting to give it a go. Just 2 more WIPs to finish first!

    1. I'm going to have a go at Tunisian Crochet too, it gives such a great effect with all the colour work! You are very disciplined finishing WIPs before starting something new, I always say I'm going to to that, but tend to get carried away with new ideas! :)
      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, I'm terrible at responding but I'm going to try to be more consistent! xxx

  7. Just ran across this and thought you'd enjoy checking it out. A different way to picture crochet (pixel graph, quicker). Have a great day!

  9. The geometric shapes and diagonals seem to be right on trend right now - triangles, diamonds, and bold zig zags. Good luck with the Tunisian crochet (it is called 'tricot' in Australia). It is a great technique for playing with colours. I think I have the same magazine as Red Haired Amazona Crochets. One can never have enough hooks and the tricot hooks can be hard to find so I grab them when I can ;-) Have fun!
