a good week

It was a great week....
What's better than some boys sloshing around in a creek?

Today I was lucky enough to receive some really good mail.
The Sugar City team put together a beautiful quarterly. I am truly inspired by their projects and hope to start on some of them soon.

And an adorable doll dress from Susannah at art nest. What a beautiful little dress with incredible details like bias binding on the armholes and neck. Just lovely!

A friend brought over an enormous collection of vintage thread she found at an estate sale. They are all so beautiful that I cannot imagine actually sewing with them. I love the wooden spools. The kids had fun stacking them up while I was taking pictures of the thread (which they didn't find strange at all!).

I'm off to sew jester costumes with yards and yards of polyester knit; really gross stuff but entirely appropriate for these costumes (to be worn on stage for a couple of minutes or so). I *might* share them here.
