There were a couple of things that have got me excited this week.
As part of my Stash Less mission I have been looking at wardrobe planning. As part of my visual diary process and I came across this series by the owner of Colette patterns (via Karen). It is called Wardrobe Architect and it is truly amazing. I'm going to go through the process in order to be more thoughtful about what I am making. And I know it will help me be more satisfied with how I spend my limited sewing time.
The second thing I came across was Ysolda's new-to-me technique series. I hadn't checked in with her blog for a while and I am in love with these. She explains technical things in a non technical way - which I so admire as that skill used to be part of my job in ye olden days - and she does it beautifully. She gives you the why and not just the what. My favourites are this one - which in my 10+ years of being a knitter I hadn't come across - and this one on colour dominance is just fantastic. So very good and so well explained.
And the last couple I want to point out are from this here blog. Last week on the blog I asked for your music suggestions and you came up with the goods. So much great new music that I am going to slowly trawl through over the next few weeks. And while you are there, go and read the comments on last weeks post entitled Craft as an Equal. There are so many fantastic ideas and resources in the comments - love it! Many super smart women read this blog and I'm grateful you all pipe up with your thoughts.
P.S. The winners for the giveaway of Kirsten's gorgeous new patterns for Shibui are Lesley Scott and Mion. Mion - you didn't leave your email address so could you please email me at thecraftsessions at gmail dot com. And Lesley - I will pop yours in the post. Congrats! x
