needle & thREAD

needle and thREAD

Real Quick. I'm up to my eyeballs this week. No sewing at all, but I'm touching a LOT of fabric.

Mama in a fabric store with a dear friend.

Better than being a kid in a candy store.

I chose fabrics for drapes for six rooms in my house and a bunch of pillows and cushions and made major paint decisions about every single room above the basement. And then, we threw in some tile for good measure. (That chart looked way prettier before the painter wrote all over it.) My sewing is more than queued up for the next three months:-). My friend Cari promises to help me through this drapery thing.

And I skipped Yarn Along this week. I learned today that I have to tear out and re-start my Sunday Sweater. So, yeah. negative progress, because all I did was make the yarn "used."


I haven't started reading yet, but my advance copy of Desperate arrived today. I had to laugh at the timing and the title and the fact that I wished I could stretch out like that girl on the cover. It's been quite a week.


Does autumn call you into your sewing space? Are you thinking flannel pjs or cozy quilts? 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.
