I like the idea of learning to sew but I just don’t have much time these days. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good sewing craft magazine and the new Seamwork magazine from the folks at Colette looks beautiful with pieces with classic good looks.
There’s been a lot of tough moments this year but this video reminds me that I love what I do, the people I work with and the challenges we face in helping people connect, communicate and share their lives.
Waving the Hallmark flag today to all the people who have ever written, designed, painted, printed, shipped, distributed, accounted for or did anything else that keeps the cogs turning here. Thanks!
The last week or so, we FINALLY started watching the new series of Dr. Who. I really like Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor in Season One but everyone told m how much they liked David Tennant. We are now well into Season Three and I’m beginning to appreciate the lighter, more playful character that Tennant brings to the Doctor. So glad we finally started watching this and that I have four more seasons left to watch. Dr. Who OD!
What a beautiful, inspiring video about how indie fiber dyer, SweetGeorgia. The colors of her yarns and fibers are bright, vibrant colors and its just fun to see all the colors and how they produce hand dyed fibers in large quantities.
For whatever reason, this week I decided I needed to know how to do a long-tail tubular cast-on. I found this lovely video that Ysolda Teague made (love you, Ysolda! But I promise I’m not a crazy stalker, really.) but I cannot, for the life of me, remember why I needed to know how to do this. Classic case of knitters short-attention span…
Janelle Monáe singing “Tightrope”. I am madly in love with this song and have purchased two versions of it on iTunes and have basically been listening to it on a loop. The dancing and Janelle’s outfit are awesome too.
While expanding my internet circle of inspiration, I found a craft blog that was reminiscing about Molly Ringwald’s character, Andi’s, remix-style handmade wardrobe. I loved her wardrobe! And her Carmen Ghia! And the Psychedelic Furs!
