Threading Your Way ~ Features

Over here in Australia, sun hats are a must. I wear hats, all year round and I have a lot so I can co-ordinate with each outfit. However, I have never sewn a hat for myself. I've sewn a couple for kids, but I wasn't overly happy with the results.

Whilst I may wear hats all year round, I also love wearing scarves, whether it be to dress up an outfit or for warmth. It's our first day of Winter and definitely cold enough for scarves and beanies here. Looking at all the knitted and crocheted garments makes me want to begin knitting again, or maybe teach myself to crochet. NO!!! I can't... I've committed to making my first quilt this month and I can't procrastinate any longer.

For those of you who are new to Threading My Way, all of our 22 link parties are themed and ongoing. You can add links to any party at any time. A new ongoing party begins each Sunday. Features, which are usually done each Saturday, can be chosen from any of the parties. There's a list at the bottom of the post.
    Our features for this week...

    The most viewed Hats, Bonnets, Beanies and Scarves posts from last week:
    • Ruffled Hats by Christie, from Joyfoolery. You can't beat ruffles for making something pretty and girlie.
    • Vintage Reversible Bonnet by Cass, from Cass Can Sew. Simply gorgeous, but so practical.
    And two scarves which also caught my eye:
    • Leaves Print Scarf, by Terrie from Terrie ~.~Smiling. Terrie makes amazing scarves from fabrics she has dyed herself using leaves.
    • Mythral Scarf from Het Groene Kamertie. It's our second day of Winter and I could use a beautiful, warm scarf like this.
    A tutorial showing how to make a fabulous quilt that can be used as a play mat:
    An awesome cross stitch cushion. Do you call them cushions or pillows where you live? When we were little, pillows were the things we put our heads on to sleep and cushions were the things we put behind our backs on lounges:
    And two ever so adorable little articles of girls' clothing:

      Head on over and visit these talented ladies. 

      Each week, I will place a blog button, belonging to the blog which was most viewed, in my sidebar. This week the most viewed link is the Ruffled Hats. Christie, look out for your blog button in my sidebar.

      Feel free to grab a button if you've been featured...

      I look forward to seeing more of your creativity...

      1. I love how much I learn about your part of the world by following your blog. Keep warm this winter! I think it's excellent that hats are so essential there. I only throw on a hat if I have to run out before I've hopped in the shower! eek!

      2. Thank you so much for the feature Pam!
        I love the look of that smocked dress, it looks like so much work, but what a beautiful result!

        1. My apologies, Liz. I omitted your name and had the wrong blog next to the link to your play mat. It's all fixed now...
