Sew Sweet+ London

::Yes, it is the chair again, I saw it at Anthro a while ago.
If you see it just sit in it, don't look at the price--too sad::
I've come across another great blog link!
This one came from Soule Mama, on her book list, and I was attracted to it because of the great refurbished cardigan on the cover. Sewing Bits and Pieces looks like a fun book to give ideas for all of those scrap pieces of fabric you have in your possession. I can only imagine what cute things you could do with the projects!
The author, Sandi Henderson, also has a website (with a free projects page!) and a blog called Portabello Pixie. Both have cute designs and
I'm looking forward to getting ideas and projects from her!

In other news, we are getting ready for my Mom to meet my Dad in the UK.
He is there on business and will be until the end of May. Thankfully Mom will be able to spend the next two weeks with him. Us girls will be staying with our grandparents in the hill country of Burnet, Texas. In addition to a crash course in Spanish, we'll be busy cooking, sewing, knitting, walking, and studying. I'm enjoying the pleasures of living "out in the country":
fresh wildflowers every day,
being able to look across the street and see nothing but wildflowers and pecan trees,
hearing the windchimes,
and beautiful sunsets.
Now, I'm not saying it's perfect!
After all, who wants to miss important phone calls on account of the spotty service?
At any rate, I am so excited for my Mom. England is so lovely and they are staying in such a sweet little hotel! Although London is very expensive, I'm sure Mom will have no lack of things to do. They don't charge you to walk around; she could even feed the birds by St. Pauls--
it's only tuppence a bag...
