Inspiration in April

After my bout of migraines last week and the weekend away, I find myself with nothing to post!  So, I thought I'd jump on a bit of a bandwagon and show you all some links to things that I've got bookmarked or pinned on Pinterest around Blogland.  A word of warning though, this isn't going to be quite like other roundups as there's no toilet roll craft or wreaths to be found here!

First up, Lynne of Lily's Quilts has set up a Flickr group for British Quilters.  I'm British (well, technically I'm English) but I'm not yet a quilter, but I had to join anyway!  If your a Brit and you quilt, come and join...


So, what have I found inspiring this week?
I'm afraid I don't know how to make the photos into links, but I've provided a link below each one.

I love rainbows and I love this embroidery from Belle & Bee

Check out the tiny squares in squares in this quilt from The Plaid Scottie

I love this bag!  Tutorial available on Moda Bake Shop

I am in love with this little bunny, Marcel the Mushroom Collecter, available on Etsy

Bunny Hop Slippers
I might have to knit me some of these slippers, but not in pink.  Free pattern available on All Free Knitting.Com

How beautiful are these name plaques?  See them at Lella Boutique

I love this crocheted bear hat, Alli Crafts has very generously provided us with a tutorial for 3-month and newborn sizes

This mani/pedi kit would make a great present.  Find the tutorial at Positively Splendid

How delicious is this pouch from City House Studio?  Just think of all the rainbow combinations you could do...

I love the things that Roxy Creations makes, I just wish there was more writing in her posts, more about process etc.  She really is an expert sewist and I'd love to learn from her.

Storage tower with 8x4 litre Really Useful Boxes
I saw this Really Useful storage tower in HobbyCraft and I desperately want one.  How fab would that be to store scraps and charms etc by colour?  Unfortunately the £39 price tag is a bit much for me.  If anyone wants to buy them for me, just let me know and I'll give you my address!

Pings and Needles has created her perfect diary/notebook/organiser.  Wish I could get my perfect design together!

I hope you've all enjoyed this inspiration.  It's a long Bank Holiday weekend for us Englandiers now - Friday to Monday, then the same again next weekend so hopefully I'll have plenty to show you in the coming weeks.

Awwwh, aren't those the cutest things ever? There is so much talent out there!!

I hope your migraines are all gone?

GREAT inspiration - I adore Marcel the Mushroom Collector! I hope your migraines are all gone now, hon. BTW, I've been having trouble emailing you - sent one twice, about your comment on my blog, and both times it came back. Not sure what's going on, it's been happening a LOT lately, not just with you.

Thanks for so many cute links!
I also upload the pattern for the hat I made for my Mom last week, just come over to get it if you'd like!
I hope you are much better. Happy Easter to you and your family!!!

A great collection of inspirational goodies. I am in love with the quilt with the lovely orange daisies.

Lots of pretty eye candy (and I now have Roxy Creations blog open in another page, so I can peek at her pretties) - but is an inspirational list complete without toilet paper roll or wreath crafts? Be honest - what would life be like without TP rolls on the walls and a different wreath for every day of the year??!! ;)
