Oliver + S' new book Little Things to Sew. I want to make almost all of the projects in this book! There is so much cuteness in there from little red riding hood capes to sunhats. Oh, why isn't there more time in my day?
I used four different colors of tulle that I bought at Joannes-a 2 yards of bright pink, a 2 yards of a soft pink, a 2 yards of a salmon and four yards of a soft yellow.
Other random things that are going on include:
- I have been trying out contacts this past week, and I have been loving them. I haven't worn contacts for six years, but I wore them for about twelve years straight before that. I think my head looks bigger; isn't that weird?
-If you aren't on pinterest yet, you should check it out. I have been loving it! Here is a link to my boards:
You can request an invite if you don't have one already, and it usually appears within a couple of days.
-There is a Front Range Modern Quilt Guild Meeting on Monday, so if you live in the Denver/Colorado Springs area check it out! It is a lot of fun, and the people are all great and inspirational.
-Elsie Marley's Kids Week starts next week. I am plotting what I can make, and while I know I won't have an hour a day, I am determined to make something.
-I am also up for the challenge behind The Summer of No Pants. It will have to be the summer of some pants for me though because I don't own enough skirts and dresses for this to completely work!
-This morning when I checked my email I saw the Kate Spain commented on my Barcelona Skirt that I made from her Central Park fabric. I about died! It made my day because she is one of my favorite designers, and she likes my skirt.:) Has this ever happened to you? It makes me wonder how she stumbled upon that posting, and is she really an Auburn fan. Either way, she said "Go Auburn" which made me very happy, indeed.:)
Have a happy rest of your week! I am so glad that it is Thursday.
