Sew Hip

I picked up Sew Hip at Barnes and Noble today. It is a sewing magazine from the UK. I have never seen it before. There are several items I would love to try inside, like the Rail Fence Runner, Spiderweb Quilt, and Haberdashery Hairband.

I also picked up the fall issue of Stitch and there are nine Japan inspired projects inside that look quick and easy. I may be able to try some of these right away. I got a new book too Sweet Nothings by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader. I think it will be fun to make some undergarments and nighties.

I was planning to go to the Renaissance Faire today. My daughter was home on a break from college and we wanted to go to the Faire but it was raining pretty hard when we got there so we decided to do a bit of shopping instead. I wore my new Renaissance Costume and I didn't think to take something along to change into so I wore it shopping. My daughter was a bit embarrassed but isn't that part of my job to embarrass my kids. We would have been very cold and wet if we had gone to the Faire.

  1. Did I miss the picture of your finished outfit? I would have gone shopping in my costume too, at least you would have been warm.
    SewHip is one of my fave magazine too, I can't wait to see what you make.
