Time for another "I Like" post!
And on Thanksgiving too!
He's holding a 2 year old Westie named Cooper.
We've been looking for a poodle to help make us a family of three again. This weekend at the Sugarloaf craft show we stopped to visit the booth of Jill Stern who makes hand dyed and hand painted clothing/shoes. They had Cooper there in his supervisory capacity.
Now I am in lurve with a Westie!
He has a deep and meaningful look like Cole did. Knowing. Loving.
#2 I like hand made clothing
I managed to only buy one more of Jill's shirts, which brings my total to two.
They are one of a kind and wash easily.
Perfect for the summer with cap sleeves
Perfect for the spring and fall layered over a shirt somewhat like a vest.
I love hand dyed clothing
#3 I like cool coffee cups
#4 I like this designer Fabric with metallic gold in it (click to see the intense gold on fabric on the right)
I bought more fabric!
I was just going to "look" in Capital Quilts in Gaithersburg since we were so close anyway...
In the time it took my husband to park the car and walk in from the parking lot, I already found four fat quarters I "needed".
Very Klimt, no? I LOVE Klimt's work.
He was censored by Nazi Germany. We have to be very careful around here not to censor art, right??
Like opinions, there is room for all. It's an American right to be free to peacefully disagree, to express oneself. Guard Free Speech.
#5 I like.felted items by Ram's Horn Connections, an artist living on a farm in PA.
When asked about her studio, neat or mess, she laughed and said "mess!"
It's my belief that most working artists have a messy studio. At least in my informal interviews that's true.
#6 the Brit TV series recently shown on PBS...
the "Durells in Corfu". You can see the shows online probably. It's my new favorite series on PBS and I'm ticked off the season is so short!!! What fun! I want to be a part of that wacky family. What a wonderful family of individuals each with talents and personality.
#7 the tutorial page at BuzzNBumble
for instance that's a pin cushion!! Adorable! the link is:
I visit a lot of tutorial and pattern pages, as if I can make all the patterns I want to in this life time. I want to make nearly all of these! Thanks girl!
#8 finding a new blog to open my mind to new thought
This woman is focused on clearing out stuff and living a less materialistic life. Link is:
While she takes it to more of an extreme than is right for my life, I learned lots by reading her posts. It's relatively new so there are not many posts, maybe part of her minimalist beliefs lol! Check it out.
#9 I like learning new things and friends who give you stuff
I have been meaning to try needle punch. There are lots of youtube tutorials on how to do it. I am headed out to find the fabric one uses. They recommend weaver's cloth. I have, ahem, plenty of embroidery thread to try.
Now where is a good poodle image???
#10 I like Great Big Fir trees
I start collecting these likes about Saturday... and keep adding items til I publish on Thursday.
That means I add to it all week as I notice something I like which keeps me more positive.
If you did that, you could link to my post with likes of your own. I think it's fun to see things people enjoy along with sewing items because we know we like sewing!
In fact these people have done that, please visit them too!
SO Thankful you visited me!! Love to all this week, LeeAnna
