I've been feeling a bit stressed lately. It's not that I've been running around and doing a lot, I've just had a lot on my mind, and I'm really going all out for the Tour de Fleece, and apparently running a small business is somewhat tense (who knew?). I don't feel like I've had time to decompress. It's like my brain needs to be defragmented. I have therefore decided that today's links need to be a recipe for relaxation. Or, at least, tutorials for a crafty relaxation spot. Make a chair, hand stitch some coasters, whip up a tea ball and some biscotti, and mellow out.

get the links after the jump!

  1. Everyone needs a favourite chair right? Have you ever considered reupholstering an old armchair? I think this tutorial is great; it really gets into the crafty process.
  2. These coasters are perfect - cute, summery, and excellent for protecting your favourite end table.
  3. Make yourself a cup of tea with this tea duck. I think it would make me laugh every single time I used it.
  4. I know biscotti is best suited to coffee, but I wouldn't let that stop me from gobbling up loads of this chocolate spice biscotti with my tea.

What tea, you ask? Anything from my wondeful local shop,

Silk Road

. They do mail order too!
