New Inspiration

When I was a stay at home mum I used to spend a lot of time reading blogs, all sorts of blogs, quilt blogs, craft blogs, food blogs, lifestyle blogs even wooden spoon making blogs. They connected me with other like minded people, inspired me and provided some escapism from my life.  Over the past few years a lot of my favourites have disappeared, so I thought I would find some new inspiration.  Here's a little list of  mostly new to me blogs and what I like about them.
The most beautiful photos, the gorgeous colour palettes, her regular posts, in fact she is almost inspiring me to totally change my style and colour palette.  Lots to drool over here.

This is a Finnish blog,  (a translate option is available) again beautiful creative colourful quilts.

I have been reading this blog pretty much since I discovered the world of blogging all those years ago,.  Kate an Australian writes about her family, their lives and their organic farm. Lots of lovely photos of food, knitting, family and everyday life.

A Tennessee quilter who likes colour, very textured quilting and just creates amazing quilts.

Another Australian blog,  Interesting posts discussing all sorts of crafting topics and people, gorgeous photos of stitchers, knitters,  food and foliage.

Quilts, cats, yoga, sometimes books, interesting places and food too.

Another Australian quilter, EPP fanatic,  Beautiful photos and colours, always inspiring.

Plants, flowers, beautiful gardens - lots of colour and beauty

Happy reading everyone.  Hope that you all have a fabulous weekend, let me know if you have any favourite blogs too.
