things on the internet that are awesome

January 22nd, 2010

I’m starting to really enjoy these linkydoo posts (awesome name stolen from miss rae) I hope you don’t mind them too much. Since I’ve started to crochet, I’ve been on the look out for crochet blogs. I found this one (sc) recently and though I can fake reading french a little, really I have no idea what she is saying but her work is lovely enough even without the words.

Erika from fox and owl makes beautiful articulated teddy bears (and kitties and dolls too), but it’s this idea that I’m going to steal. Healthy and hilarious!

Another craft project idea on the list to steal (someone has a flickr set called “ideas I have stolen” that I always thought was fantastic) is this painted square set from mer mag.  Part art part toy and super fantastic all over.

From another blog I can’t read comes this project. Perfect for valentine’s day or mother’s day or just to use up the ridiculous amount of random art we have piled up in the house.

have a great weekend!

    There. I sat down to finally read this blog post and here I am, an hour later, having clicked on every link and subscribed to two other blogs and made favorite an etsy shop (or two, I’ve lost count.) You’re blog is definitely one of the awesome things on the internet!

    You have the best links. Those geometric tiles are the best thing I’ve seen in a while. I need some right NOW.

    Your crochet shade is going to be incredible, once you figure it out. Hang in there…

    People have the best ideas! Fox and Owl has such sweet stuff too.
    The dried apricot chocolate animals would be great for bento boxes.

    Yoink! That’s the sound of me snatching that idea, that you snatched from her.
