HI there! Is anyone still reading? I have completely fallen off the face of the blogging world lately, and to be honest it's been nice, as if this's what summer's for... But I feel the guilt and separation growing, so here I am, back at it before I forget my typepad login completely.
On the sewing front, my charming little students and I are making trees strait out of Amanda Soule's book. It's a great way to use some precious scraps and Finn went nuts when he saw the one I am making for him, as in grabbing it, running away screaming "mine!" and then placing it lovingly on the floor to sit by. This is the first time since Finn was born 2.5 years ago that he has shown any interest for something I handmade for him, apart from blankets. So this is HUGE.
Here is a peek of the WIP:
I also talked myself into buying Larissa's new pattern. It's a decoupage with painstakingly detailed instructions.
Here is a picture I lifted from her blog:
I like everything this woman creates, which makes me a silly groupie I guess, oh well! She is very nice too, did I mention that?
Because I am in full blown link mode I want to share another great creative find, via Larrissa: Karen Larsen is a illustrator with the funiest/cutest style. You can read her blog Box of Birds here and admire this felt squirrel brooch from her shop.
If you are still reading by this point, may I also point out a fashion redo project from my com-padre at The Sewing Republic? An adorable Shirt Dress that would look amazing with leggings. I am making that one as soon as the husband is diverting his eyes from his closet! (edit: I think it would be fabulous out of a flannel shirt in the winter!)
FINALLY! let's end this epic post on the song that has been living in my head as of late. Maybe I can plant it i yours. Wink!
