Purl

One more post before bed…I found this image on Purl‘s blog and just thought it was a great idea! Filling embroidery hoops with great fabrics and using them as art could work wonders at any party, or right in your home. I’ve been obsessed with having a photo-portrait area at my wedding at some point, and instead of just draping some fabric up against the wall, this could be a lot cuter….especially in my wedding colors of green and white. Purl was kind enough to include a tutorial, so here it is. In case you didn’t know, Purl is a great source for fabrics AND knitting supplies of every kind.

Little Birds


While visiting a friend in San Francisco last week, I popped into Doe SF to see what all the hype was about….its a fabulous store with wonderful little treasures, but what really caught my eye was the work of Stephanie Barnes. She makes beautiful stuffed flora and fauna, and I wanted to buy a few of the green mushrooms as decoration at my wedding (maybe on the guest book table), but unfortunately all were sold out already. I guess I’m going to have to stalk her etsy shop to find new ones….
