Thank you to everyone who came out to hear Laura Gunn at Modern Domestic last night! It was wonderful to have her and her Mom, Elinor Peace Bailey, here. I'm (selfishly) hoping for lots more of these events in the future. A special shout-out to members of the American Sewing Guild (Portland Chapter) who joined us last night as well. Joan (from Portland Modern Quilt Guild) wrote a lovely recap of the event, including detailed photos of the demo. (There are a few more pictures on flickr-- if you have some additional photos, please feel free to add them to the group!).
I buckled and bought some of the Cosmo Cricket yesterday. I'm working on some new grocery bags, "If we were meant to pop out of bed, we'd all sleep in toasters." That cracks me up. I'm also spending the weekend getting to know my new serger better. Have you seen the new Michael Miller knits in the store?? I'm testing out the black and grey stripe and will report back.
