For the past few months, I've been stitching my way through the alphabet, using the pretty patterns I receive every week as a member of Polka and Bloom's Alphabet Motif Club. I started in September (my first two letters are above) and I'm currently working on K. The letters up through U have been released though, so this weekend I'm hoping to set aside some time to stitch and get caught up. In the meantime, here are a few links to take you into the weekend:
Apartment Therapy did a nice round-up showing quilts in modern interiors.
Target has teamed up with Faribault Woolen Mills in MN to produce a line of products featuring their US-woven wools.
A quilt made from wetsuits.
Rennes makes my favorite leather bags, and I love this honest interview Rennes' owner Julia Okun did on the real costs of producing and selling domestically produced, high-quality goods.
This vintage quilt pin is the perfect way to incorporate a bit of patchwork into your wardrobe, and is going onto my Christmas wish list.
I just discovered Griswold Textile Print, a mill in Rhode Island that produces hand screen-printed fabrics for lots of great makers, including a new favorite, Fayce Textiles.
This Joy embroidery pattern I designed is easy to stitch and a perfect last-minute holiday gift.
Happy weekend, friends!
