I know... I'm late, I'm late, I'm late for this announcement. Drum roll, please!
Congratulations, Bari Jo! You've won a copy of the charming new book, Zakka Handmades, by Amy Morinaka of chick chick sewing. (Please email me your details right away, Bari Jo.) Thank you to all who entered the giveaway... I hope you have fun this summer, sewing up all the projects you told me about.
As usual, I have a pile of unfinished projects waiting for me, but when I sat down to sew the other day I wasn't interested in any of them. What I really needed was a little scrap patchwork therapy. Yes, therapy. It calms me (should I be embarassed to admit this?) to sit and cut my irregular shaped scraps into rectangles and squares to make patchwork. So, now I've got three patchwork bibs...
... that I don't really need. I think I'll keep one, give one to a friend, and sell the last in my shop. I've got a few other items to put in the shop as well ~ I'm horrible about that ~ so I'll give you a proper heads-up before I list them.
Big things are happening around here:
- We bought a mini-van. Sob sob!!! I'm an official soccer mom.
- Anne got a summer job at Pinkberry (!)
- Mia is walking at last!
- and Summer is half-way over. Can you believe it?
Enjoy it. xo amy
