Saturday Stumbles #23


This week I’ve been all over the board on things I’ve searched for, stumbled across or hope to do.

Starting with knitting:

** Waffle Knit Dishcloth Pattern at Homespun Living - Renna posted a link to these dishcloths and amazingly I haven’t seen them before.  Through the years I’ve become a dishcloth snob and really prefer to only use hand knit.  I used a dishcloth pattern at church Monday night to demonstrate the purl stitch to one of the ladies even.  So now that the scarf drive is over and my knitting can be more than scarves I think I might give this a go.

** Sweet Swingers at Debi Birkin Designs – There are just no words to explain how darling I think these are. We happen to be right in the middle of rearranging a few rooms in the house and I keep going back and looking at these to see if perhaps I should knit them for my room.  They make me smile.  :)

And on to quilting/sewing:

** Quilted Coasters at I Can Find The Time – While rearranging the rooms I’m finding a lot of craft supplies that I had apparently forgotten about, including a plethora of quilt fabrics that I still dearly love.  I’ve been looking for patterns for some of the smaller pieces of fabric and these appeal to me as they are both functional and pretty.

** YoYo Kitchen Towels at This & That – As soon as I saw these I just knew they would look quite jaunty hanging in the kitchen.  Quite easy too!

And always food:

** Cheeseburger Runza at June Cleaver Nirvana – So many things going for these – using my bread machine, hand held dinner, reminds me of friends in the city we used to live in (she was the master of these, but I don’t think she called them runzas) and my daughter-in-law’s mom apparently makes fantastic runzas.  All that combined made me definitely want to try these.

Such great blogs Elizabeth. I love the pattern for the waffle dishcloth. I want to try that. And those birds are adorable too. The recipe looks really tasty. Hope you are enjoying the dishcloth that I sent you. I love to knit dishcloths. Enjoy your weekend and hope you get lots of crafting done. Those coasters are sure cute too and look so easy to make. Love & blessings from NC!

Oh, good stuff!! I love those kitchen towels. I've already marked them in hopes of actually trying them one day;)

Thanks for sharing & linking up!

Hi! This is Kathryn from I Can Find The Time and I just wanted to say thank you for featuring my Quilted Coasters!

Thanks for sharing such great links! I had a hard time pulling myself away from the Debi Birkin Designs website. I'm totally enamored with the Sleeping Baby Bunny pattern, and the variety of darling tea cosy's.

All the links appealed to me, and that Cheeseburger Runza redipe is going in my recipe rotation. :-)

Thanks so much for including me on your list! I am a horrible and lazy cook, but the runzas are easy and totally worth it. It is one of my favorite meals.
