Happy Monday friends, how was the weekend? I barely remember what I did, but I'm pretty sure it involved going and getting the latest Cotton Time from Kinokuniya, and some sewing. I had told Bari all about the bookstore and she went and blogged about it here. She has some great photos. Just seeing them had me in the car heading down there early Saturday.
Here's something that isn't too hard to find if you have a Barnes and Noble near by. Mollie Makes is a delightful new magazine. It's a British import so it sports a hefty price tag, but it seemed worth it. The photography is lush and the projects are fun. It's a youthful magazine but seems to embrace a different aesthetic than some of the other hip sewing magazines who's audience is the younger crowd of sewists. The projects seems more sophisticated, even though they might be a bit fanciful, like those apple cozies. I could appreciate those and imagine being that pretentious mom who sends her kid to school with an apple wearing a jacket. For me those days are gone, maybe there's still time for you!
