To be a bit cliché, this shoemaker is a professional Web Developer and her child is this blog, but it was past time to launch what I have of a new design. All the content is still here, everything else is a work in progress (kind of like most of my sewing projects)!
I’ve made enough progress on my WIP list from July that I feel comfortable starting a new project, finally. And, it’s one I’m keeping.
This one has been in my brain since the end of May, when we traveled to Missouri and I got the chance to stop at Sew To Speak Shoppe in Columbus, OH (I’m in love and want to move there, just for this shop). Among my purchases was a small FQ stack of Cut Out & Keep by Heather Moore for Cloud9 Fabrics.
If you’re in the area, pack up your machine and current project, and come join us. I’m thinking I can finally finish the rotary cutting mat bag I started last month. In the mean time, I have two quilts to finish by the end of the month, but sorry, can’t talk about them until they’re delivered!
It just closed at the Cincinnati Art Museum, which owns most of the pieces in the show.
If you can’t wait for June—or don’t live near Utica—a book of the same title is available. The book is authored by Cynthia Amneus, the associate curator of costume and textiles at the Cincinnati Art Museum; Sara Long Butler, Professor of Costume Studies at Miami University in Ohio; and Katherine Jellison, Associate Professor of History at Ohio University. It’s on my wishlist, but I haven’t yet looked through a printed copy.
If you happen to know if it’s opening at another museum in between Cincinnati and MWPAI, let us know in the comments.
