favourite blogs – the long thread

Another blog that I started following long before I started blogging myself is The Long Thread .
It’s well laid out, easy to see what’s there, there are links to tutorials on other blogs as well as on The Long Thread. I’m constantly finding new stuff on it that helps me, whatever my project. Ellen has a great eye for colour (important for me ) and an easy writing style (important for dyslexic me) and lots of photos (fun for me).
Ellen has even written a book, 1,2,3, Sew and is writing her second 1,2,3 Quilt (guess what that one’s going to be about)
Look at this photo
Don’t you love her style? I wish my photos were as good as hers (I wish my house had stairs like this as well, but that’s another story).
I love this bag of hers:
and I want to make it, but it’ll have to wait until I’ve finished some of my WIPs.
I love this pencil case of hers, too:
I’m thinking of making two for my aunt-in-australia (aka: my godmother, my favourite aunt), who is an artist. I’ll probably make one for her brushes and another one for her pencils. I’ll use grown-up fabrics of course, or maybe not, live is too short to be a grown-up all the time.
Another two for my to-do list!
