There's no shortage of gadgets at our house, and I admit, I'm always up for a new one. So when my sister-in-law gifted me with one last weekend, I was more than pleased. It's a seam ripper with a twist - "innovative thread removers on each end." It's called a seam-fix, and believe it or not, there's even a youtube video showing how to use it. Now that's really random, but of course doesn't mean I'm not anxious to give it a try. I'm sure I'll have a chance soon.
On a more serious note, there was a really thoughtful and thought-provoking post by Jacquie of Tallgrass Prairie Studio yesterday on the private lives behind our public faces. It's worth a read.
Also yesterday, I was able to visit Drygoods Design, a little(!) shop tucked in behind the delicious Anchored Ship Coffee Bar. I chatted with Drygoods' owner, Keli (we happen to cross paths on Instagram) about her new venture, MAKE*DO*MEND, an adjacent craft and sewing studio, which sounds like a really special place. I can't help but wish it were closer to my home!
online shop too. You might even consider checking it out soon, as they are having a mighty fine "spend $40 and save 40% on fabric" sale through 12/1, with the use of the posted coupon code.
Speaking of Instagram, I don't know if I've ever mentioned that I'm there - just look for aquilterstable. Fun times.
And to end on a totally random note, I thought I'd share a pic hubby took last weekend when we traveled to Eastern Washington. When I peeked out the window in the morning, I thought it had snowed, but no, it was just really heavy frost. I love the shot he took.
Linking up with Really Random Thursday.
