Good morning!

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!


It was a nice read out back with a glass of iced tea. The weather has been so perfect the past few days. Why isn't the whole summer like this?

So what did you guys do?

Thanks for telling us about Kinokuniya. I was raised right off of Saratoga Ave in San Jose, and this looks like a great place to visit on my next trip home.

Well, I will be running right out to look for Mollie Makes. We lost our Borders store a few months ago and I have not been a hug fan of the other, but will make an exception for new inspiration! Waiting, waiting, waiting for your fabric. ~Kelly

I'm so glad you told me about that place except for the fact that they have the entire contents of my wallet. :) Can't wait to get a Mollie Makes!
