I bought an album by Sophie Hunger. She is worth a listen. Check her out.


 

I really like Kellie Davis of Mother Fitness Revolution. I was introduced to her web site by Bret Contreras site (who calls himself The Glute Guy-which I think quite charming, albeit goofy) 😉 The two coauthored the upcoming book, Strong Curves, which I preordered, I never pre-order! I am quite excited about this book. Marianne has worked with Bret. In the fitness world it seems that people mentor and teach one another, it is quite an interesting place.


 

I own one piece of jewelry from these folk. I check them out now and again. Lil’ shopping. Then I head over here. I own a pair of boots from CYDWOQ. She says shyly. Riches! Honest to goodness riches. Those boots were comfortable from day one. Amazing. And they will last for quite a long time. These boots can be resoled, and there is a great cobbler in the neighborhood. My Man bought me a shirt sold at J Crew, made of Liberty of London cloth yesterday (I wish you could actually see the print). There will be many a fun day in that shirt! 


 

The Graffiti Breast Pockets are coming along. They need a super shift, a change, an intensity of color, additional motif, something. I have begun to push them in a new direction.

In Episode 6 of the last Mad Men season (4?), Peggy has this print by David Weidman hanging in her office, which I love. I am embroidering my version of these daisies onto the pocket at upper right.

Today I have a doctor appointment in the morning, then I plan to take my sewing supplies to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to stitch/draw. Excitement.

  1. Hope all goes well at the doctor’s office. Enjoy your time at MoMa. I suppose that is another reason I should return to NY – never got a chance to see it!

  2. I hope it was a gold star day at the doc’s. I love shopping with you! LOL! D gets two thumbs up on the blouse. I love J. Crew and then combine it with Liberty – yeah! The eye candy on this post is amazing. I love the etsy shop and what they are offering. Then I started browsing through what was showing at the MET. I could spend days on end there just seeing what they are exhibiting now. The Asian art, Klee, Warhol, etc., bliss! xoxo
