Goodness! I completely forgot to add gifts from the kitchen! Serves me right for searching the site for ‘tutorial’, but neglecting ‘recipe’. The list has now been updated with some lovely treats from the kitchen.

And for anyone who hasn’t heard, @Abbeeroad will be teaching a class on how to make her Clothesline Necklaces here on LC via Zoom, in December! If you sign up for the class (cost $5), you can also order a kit with all the supplies you’ll need from Abbee for just $5 more.


What an awesome roundup of tutorials to get us inspired. Thanks so much for posting this!
