needle & thREAD






I finally finished those dresses! Details, details:

The fabric is Zoe Pearn's Sweet Nothings. It appears to be very sold out. I bought a whole bunch of it for curtains and then decided otherwise. Happy thing, that.

The pattern is Oliver + S Seashore Sundress in a 3, 5, and 12. 

I'm reading Stratford Caldecott's Beauty in the World: Rethinking the Foundations of Education. It's my inspiration before heading into mega planning mode for the coming year. It's an awesome summer read whether you educate your children at home or not. We all need this book.

I'll be back within the week with a review and a giveaway.

What about you? Sewing? Reading? A little of both? What's on your summer reading list? Do you have a summer sewing list?  Or are you embroidering? Pulling a needle with thread through lovely fabric to make life more beautiful somehow? Would you share with us just a single photo (or more) and a brief description of what you're up to? Will you tell us about what you're reading, also? Would you talk sewing and books with us? I'd love that so much.
