Freakin' Brilliant!

I used the seamless join technique on the last round of each square for the Moroccan Inspired Throw. This is brilliant!  For super neat, seamless joins, see the tutorial by Sarah London.

Thank you Tanya for including me in your 5 Things I love Saturday posting. Your Little Things Blogged blog is brilliant! So many ideas, such inspiration.

I've got a hankering, a HANKERING I tell you for walking the isles of IKEA again.
IKEA is targeting space poor hipsters with their newly released space saving collection.
We are neither hipsters nor (space) poor, but I just asked The Husband to get me these. 
Brilliant for organising my WIP, hooks and yarn! 

I met up with three super talented ladies this week. Cornel from I love pom-poms blog and the Craft Share get togethers gave me this Freakin' Brilliant stamp. Thank you, it is a winner!
I also met Elsbeth Eksteen, she is a brilliant artist! Take a look at her blog and Purl and the Woodpecker Facebook page.

This old tin mess plate is serving as the background for all the photos I have been taking for the Moroccan Inspired Throw.  Don't you think it makes for a brilliant background? 

I use this Apple SD card reader almost every day. It is included in the Apple Ipad Camera Connection Kit and I use it to import photos directly from the camera's SD card to the ipad for editing on Snapseed.  Brilliant!

Have a fun weekend
