It seems as though weaving has become the blogger hobby du jour and I'm the latest to hop on the bandwagon. This towel was my first project after a sample towel and although it's almost completely done in plain weave, I keep peering at it up close to marvel at the fact that I made fabric with thread. Kind of a similar (but distinct) feeling to knitting.

Stayed home with the flu for a couple days last week but I can only handle laying about and perusing the Netflix catalog for so long before I get antsy, so I dug this fabric out of a box and got to sewing. I left the edges unfinished mostly out of laziness, but I'm enjoying raw hems more and more as a deliberate design choice.

Buena Vista Summer 2013

Another new line that I'm all about. Handmade in small editions by Ava Kaufman (who I had the pleasure of meeting last summer while passing through Point Reyes), this first collection from Buena Vista is incredibly strong and inexplicably thrilling. Each piece feels steeped in the present: carefully crafted with quiet details. You would pass a girl wearing Buena Vista without much thought but she would stick in your mind all day long.

The Row x Linda Farrow sunglasses (top, left, bottom) and Acne sunglasses (right)

Those Olsens make a mean pair of shades. Second prize goes to Acne for the perfect shade of blush.

A few days ago, I quickly put together a basic tote bag to refresh my sewing skills for a couple sewing projects I've been meaning to get to (for like, a year). I think I got the proportions about right, but it could still use a little tweaking. Even so, I'm always surprised and thrilled by the high of filling a functional void by making something useable for myself. Joy in the small things. And of course, all done with a little help from resident napping dog, Toby.
