It's summer--wonderful summer with clear blue skies, relaxing days, and lots of "quilty-sewy" things I want to get finished. But I've been a little distracted. One of those distractions has been Strawberry Fields...this dreamy bundle just says "vintage summer" to me. And of course the possibilities are endless with this fabric--how does one decide?
And then I've been a little distracted by SarahJane's cute-as-can-be embroidery patterns. The new stitcheries will all be available soon with iron-on transfers, but I couldn't wait and had to order one to get started on. It really wasn't too hard to trace the design myself. Just one more lazy afternoon or evening should give me the time to finish this up.
Another distraction has been the new-to-me British magazine Mollie Makes. I found this copy today at Barnes & Noble. This is the first issue, and the second issue just came out--I'll be buying that one as soon as I can find it. This new magazine is just full of page after page of gorgeous eye-candy, vintage inspiration, beautiful work spaces, and everything a "quilty-sewy" girl like me loves.
Hope you're distracted by some fun things right about now, too!
