More, new, distracting hobbies.
Let’s Go Weave.
PS- I already tried it. Using a small canvas I had on hand.
It’s harder than it looks!
Apparently, I can still be surprised.
I kind of expected this cover.
Though I am still SO PLEASED.
But this video.
I can’t even get into the painful, beautiful, complex, disheartening, encouraging, ever-changing THING that is the relationship between black women and their hair.
It’s too much.
I will give Vogue an A+ for respecting and including this (clearly joyful!) part of Lupita’s life with the Vogue masses.
And for these insanely beautiful photos.

My garment sewing mojo has taken a little hiatus. Instead, I’ve been reading and day dreaming about a host of other creative endeavors to get stuck into.
It’s Frida. So, obviously, I love it.
I stumbled across it at the perfect time: while focused on projects/additions to bring color to my bland home.
I can’t wait to see them in person!

THE WINNER OF SEWING INDIE MONTH’S
RACHEL OF THE BRODRICK DESIGN STUDIO!
Her mashup of By Hand London’s Anna bodice and Sinbad & Sailor’s Raven Shorts tickled your fancy! That playsuit is envy making!! Check out her blog post to see how she did and stay tuned when her prizes start rolling in!
Thanks for playing, everyone!
I have been sewing. I swear! If can manage to catch the good weather on a day when I have times for photos, you’ll see I’m telling the truth. In the meantime, I’m reading like crazy and FINALLY organizing some neglected areas in my apartment.
Oy! Hate it! ;)
You’ve got one more day to get those Indie Sewing Month projects entered!
To do so, go to THIS post, and click the little image at the bottom of the post.
As for me, I suffered a little bit of inspiration overload! Sorry if I overwhelmed you with all of those awesome options ;)
Despite that, I’ve been a busy sewing bee, but I think I will be turning in early, tonight.
