The sun came out this week, thankgoodness. I should have been sewing this work-in-progress (to be a valentine quilt for E.):
But, instead, I went on a sunny drive to visit this magazine at Borders:
Yes, I "visit" craft magazines because they’re pricey and I am usually only inspired by one or two projects. I prefer to sketch a note to myself about the project, and save the money and space on my shelf. This magazine is different. Unfortunately, it’s in french. I can’t understand a bit of it – a total bummer because they have instructions for all 9 million projects featured in the magazine and I’m left to guess by "reading" the pictures. After my fourth weekly pilgrimage to Borders, I broke down and bought it. And can you blame me? It’s like this magazine was put on the shelf just for me.
I am going to try this crown – some stiffened batiste and maybe a little embroidery as embellishment? What do you think?
Talk about inspiration – four or five pages of just bags!:
I love crafted bitty shoes, and really appreciate the simplicity of these. They remind me of Heather Bailey’s Bitty Booties pattern:
I heart this magazine. I just wish I could read it.
