Hello blog friends.  I hope you all had a nice weekend and are having a good week so far.

I'm so happy and honored when my INSTAGRAM friends make some of the crochet projects and recipes that I share there, on Instagram, and here on the blog.

I was so happy when Angela @shropshirecrafter on Instagram made a crocheted leaf that I shared with everyone in a post I did HERE.  Her crocheted leaf is on the left, and look how pretty and amazing it turned out.  I love the yarn color you chose for the leaf and thanks for making it.

I was also happy when Ping from @theloation_masalachic on Instagram made the pasta dish that I made HERE.  Ping made the pasta dish but substituted the kale for broccoli.  That pasta dish sure looks good!  Thanks again for taking the time to make one of my recipes that I shared on the blog.

Thanks ladies, I am so glad I was able to inspire you both with crocheting the leaf and cooking the pasta dish.

Let's keep inspiring each other with our projects and recipes!  Keep sending me photos of your recipes and projects you make and are sharing on Instagram, and I will mention you here on the blog.

  1. I still haven't tried the leaf pattern, but I want to, Julie! It's so nice when our friends try out our ideas or recipes. It makes it all worthwhile!

  2. That is very exciting!! You're inspiring so many people!

  3. It is a thrill when we see we have inspired someone with our blog isn't it Julie? I wish I had your crochet talents.

  4. It's great that they shared that with you. I find so much inspiration on blogs on a daily basis. That's what makes blogging fun. ♥

  5. Hi Juli,
    The crocheted leaf is neat! Thanks for the mentioned. I love your recipes as they are easy to follow and with tasty results. And I trust your recipes! Thank you for sharing as always. I tried commenting earlier on my phone but it didn't get through. So I hope it doesn't come out twice!

  6. Kind of makes blogging all worth it, doesn't it, Julie? Great projects! It's easy to see why others would be inspired.

  7. How fun that they shared their results with you! Both look awesome!

  8. How lovely to see the photo of my autumn crocheted leaf! I'm so pleased it gave you happiness Julie. I think blogs and bloggers are a wonderful source of sharing ideas and inspiring people.

    Thank you for the mention, and happy blogging.

  9. That is the best part of blogging and Instagram isn't it? When someone makes a recipe you posted or something you made, it just lifts you up so much!

  10. I'm not surprised that you are inspiring people on Instagram, Julie! You are always an inspiration! Love the crocheted leaf! xx K

  11. Instagram is great. Sometimes I think what did I do, before blogging. This is like a full time job....LOL

  12. Hi Julie, Congrats on being such an inspiration to so many. How special to know that others are trying your ideas and creations and others are enjoying them so much. This is the beauty of blogging and sharing. Instagram is a wonderful source. I am new there as a just a couple weeks but I already can see, it's fabulous and so welcoming!

  13. I have never had roasted beets. We have them pickled sometimes but never roasted. My mother used to make a dish where they were in a 'sauce' and served warm. That was very good, too. xo Diana

  14. Julie,
    Congrats!! I don't do twitter or instagram or a lot of social media because I just do not have the time for it.
    Thanks so much for your visits and kind words!!
