One Hundred Dresses

I have a mission to make myself
a few sweet summer dresses. 
I  found the perfect A-line dress,
created by talented seamstress Sonya Philip.
She made 100 dress over the year. 
 I'm going to buy her book, complete with A-line pattern.
     You can read more about Sonya here and at 100 acts of sewing.
   I'm crossing my fingers she sews her way to Boston.

Drawing People at the Whitney

Scrolling fav blogs and found this gem from swiss-miss.
If you'er local or a train ride away, this is a definite must.

Jason Polan is inviting you to draw people with him this coming Sunday,
Cookies included. Total winner.

Ring Prints

Beehive is making ART with the kindergarteners at Loker School in Wayland. 
We began this printing series with black tempera paint and cups of assorted sizes, 
printing multiple rings on matt board. 
This week the children took watercolor paint to their prints

A girl and her brush

I just came across this, 
and it set me straight for the day.
It is so worth watching.
I'm off to live my life.

Hudson Valley Seed LIbrary

Christine gave me these seeds for Valentines Day.
The seed packets are little jewel paintings and the packaging is brilliant.   
The big sticker on back is removed and the colorful packet unfolds, seeds tucked away inside with seed info and planting instructions.  I just planted some zzzzzinias. 
Yay and thanks sister!
