Hey everyone! I get an hour at lunchtime to sit and play around on the net, and I love love love crafty blogs but most of my subscription list is international. I'd really like to have some UK-based blogs to read, do you lovely lot have any recommendations?

I'm trying to start one up now but I do have one entry up right now to the bead dreams contest entries last year which should give you lots of pretty things to look at on one lunch hour.

If you'd like to contribute tutorials or an article please PM me.

I would recommend http://fourgoodcorners.com - a fun blog where 3/4 of the contributors are UK based!

Also, I am in the process of setting up my own blog - http://fearfulpenguin.com and I am UK based too! Smiley

It really depends on the types of crafts you are interested in.

My blog has sewing, vintage, paper cuts, children's craft, etc. and I have a list of free tutorials at http://ninimakes.typepad.com

My UK favourites are http://mollychicken.blogs.com/my_weblog
She has sewing (the most fantastic stuffed toys ever), childrens items, just generally good fun - and funny! As far as writing goes, she's my favourite to read (many peoples favourite.)

Another is Juju Love Polka Dots. She is a great artist and crafter and has a nice style to her blog. She does a multitude of craft including: felting, beading, painting, sewing.
http://jujulovespolkadots.typepad.com/juju_loves_polka_dots/

Another nice one is Print & Paper. It is just what it sounds like. It is all about prints and patterns and very graphic. Fewer craft related items, but lovely to look at.
http://printpattern.blogspot.com/

Hope one or all of these are of interest to you!

Obviously, with you being both here and on BurdaStyle, it was the first thing that came to my mind. Cheesy
