From the kitchen ... nothing much is brewing other than strong, strong coffee today. But Saturday saw Miss 16 whip up a storm. Her Jamie-30-minute-meal this week was green curry, crispy chicken, kimchee slaw, and rice noodles. Definitely not a 30-minute meal, but very much worth the wait.
I am listening to ... my brain whir and clunk as I write the pattern for aforesaid design.
At my machine ... a new design for Homespun, with a Friday deadline!
I am reading ... The Bag Making Bible by Lisa Lam of U-Handbag, an excellent resource for construction methods, and crucial to aforesaid pattern writing ;)
In the mail today ... after sifting through the volumes of Valentines (!), there was this little gift from my ever thoughtful friend Wendy. Knowing my partiality to vintage trims and packaging, she spotted these bells for me recently. They are the sweetest, and their tinkle is a sparkle in my day. Who needs valentines with friends like these?!
But to be sure, a vintage valentine, just for you :) ♥ Bloom x
