Awesome Life Friday #148 - February New Moon TUSAL

Welcome to Awesome Life Friday!

We're so looking forward to seeing what you've been cooking, creating, growing, decorating, reviewing, giving away, and thinking about this week!

While you're here, leave your posts at the other link up we co-host here - Party in Your PJs!  It starts on Tuesday evenings, and runs through Sunday.  I hope you'll join us there as well!

Today is the February New Moon - and that means several needleworkers share their TUSAL (Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long) container of thread snippets from the work they've done this past month.

Honestly, I've done a bit but not as much as I hoped - we have decided to move in March, and that's kept me too busy for much stitching time.  I'll share what I've been working on in a few days, but here's my ORT jar (that's Old Ratty Threads).  Our dog Sasha lost interest as soon as it was clear there was no bacon hiding in there.

And now the best part of Awesome Life Friday -  the FEATURES!

As February hits the halfway point, I'm starting to long for Spring - while we wait look at all the ways to evoke blooms soon to come!

Savory Flower Bread // Treat n' Trick
"This Savory Flower Bread is soft, tender and tasty.  It was made with a basic sweet bread."

Wedding Mason Jars Made with Cut Felt // The Country Chic Cottage
"You can make your own wedding mason jars in minutes with some cut felt and a little twine.  Okay, maybe you are not planning a wedding but these jars are just too cute to resist for any occasion." 

Chocolate Cupcakes with Lavender Buttercream Frosting // Sparkle Living Blog
"Torani’s Lavender syrup is amazing. The lavender isn’t strong and overwhelming like I had worried. Instead, the flavor is light and delicate. It’s absolutely exquisite. Immediately, I knew that this lavender flavor would pair well with chocolate cake."

Fabric Flower Boutonnieres & Faux Leather Steampunk Label Pins //
Blowing Away Out West
"My challenge this month is to create stylish fabric flower boutonnieres and faux leather steampunk lapel pins using those Pinterest pins as inspiration." 

Garden Guide Planning for 2018 with Printables // Comfort Spring Station
"In most of the country, winter is a “downtime” in the garden. For the next few months, you have time to consider what you want to add or change in your garden."

DIY Mason Jar Sconces // Live Craft Love
"I love mason jars.  Like really, really love all the jars.  So how do I work more DIY mason jar ideas into my decor?  Hang them on the wall with a mason jar wall sconce of course."
