Calamity Kim has created a lovely quilted cover for her journal and it features a gorgeous piece of vintage tatting in pride of place on the front. It was this piece that had me pouring over her blog to see what I could see.
Kim is the Vice President of the Sarasota Surface Design Guild and is clearly into her crafts. Her craft inspired blog features some lovely patterns, including a gorgeous gnome egg warmer and some lovely fabric flowers.
For me, however, the best post of all in amongst the delights of free patterns and even giant rug giveaways is the more personal side. This is the kind of post that makes you feel for the person behind the blog, and it’s exactly what brings people to a site. I won’t include a direct link – but if you’re visiting Kim’s lovely site and wish to learn more about her I would certainly recommend you do a search for something to say. And once you’ve read that post, call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a few days and say hello – just because.
