Saturday Sparks Link Party 72

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 72!
Another week to spread the love and show off your latest inspiring posts. 
Another week to celebrate the creative sparks of others.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 71.

Needle Felting Fun at Artistic Endeavors 101. Brooke shows off her first 3-D needle felting project and shares some tips for beginners. I am fascinated with needle felting and have collected quite a bit of inspiration on my Needle Felting Board on Pinterest. This delightful little guy looks like a great starting option.

Pattern Hack:  Double Ruffle Capris at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. Jamie shares a free pattern and tutorial for these oh-so-cute Double Ruffle Capris pants. I imagine any little girl would love to have a pair of these - so fun!
Mobile Mud Kitchen at Kids Activities Blog. The simplest ideas are sometimes the best ideas such as this Mobile Mud Kitchen from Jackie. Mud pies and make believe - one of life's simple pleasures!
Table 2 with Instructions at My Do-it-yourself. Uwe shares his repurposed table made from discarded fruit crates. Love the center space feature for the potted plant.
A Vintage Wedding Dress for Africa at My Sweet Mission. Heather has passed along her vintage wedding dress with the hope that it will bring the joy and happiness she felt so many years ago to many other women.  She explains all the details in this post.
What have you been chewing on lately? at An Extraordinary Day. Diane shares a thought provoking post and challenges us to join her in 'training'.
Wrapping Gifts with Baby's Breath at T-Shirt & Jeans. Nicki shows us how she wraps gifts with plain, natural packaging and bits of baby's breath for a soft, romantic look.
Almost Sourdough at Yesterfood. Joy shares a mock sourdough bread recipe that does not require a starter.  She describes the finished bread as "a tender, hearty, pleasantly chewy loaf".  We love our homemade bread around here, so I just may have to give this recipe a try.
Strawberry Poke Cake at Swanky Recipes. Jessica shares a yummy recipe for Strawberry Poke Cake just in time for strawberry season.

Utica Greens Recipe at Upstate Ramblings. Anne received some fresh escarole in her CSA box and instantly knew she would be making 'Utica Greens', a traditional recipe from Upstate New York.
Sweet Sprinkles Popcorn at Eliza Ellis. Eliza threw a last minute party and shares a simple sweet and salty popcorn recipe that was a big hit with the kids.
