I really enjoy being connected to other crafty types via Twitter. It's a great resource for finding useful information, and the ability to bookmark, or 'favourite' tweets is a feature I use on a daily basis.

Here are some links which I thought might be useful to share:

via @designsponge/@metropolismag: cool site that lets you find info on individual buildings in your area (architecture + design-wise)

via @thelifecraft KNITTERS! Are you capable of designing a hat? Have you seen this competition in aid of Mencap?
closing date: 31 August

via @justforfunhmn For you ladies (or gents) who cross-stitch, here is an online Celtic alphabet chart generator:

via @wildcatdesigns Useful, detailed blog post on calculating yarn requirements for a knitted garment

and also via @wildcatdesigns Check out the Edinburgh Festivals 2010 Craft Trail map!

I also stumbled across a couple of blogs I had to share: the first being a post about the most amazing party ever over at My Life My Loves: and the second being the home of this weekend's featured seller over on Etsy, Aunt June, who blogs over at I couldn't resist picking up some of this fantastic fabric for a new project that I am very very excited about, and Lauren, who runs the shop, is a complete doll. I wasn't surprised at all that her blog was funny and sweet and bursting with colour and ideas.
