If you are in the US, have a wonderful holiday. If you are outside of the US, have a wonderful few days. See you on Monday!

Le Tigre (i like em all...even if they all sound pretty much the same)
Operation Ivy (can't of my all time favs)
The Fall (Infotainment Scan)
Pixies (Trompe Le Monde and Surfa Rosa)
Sea and Cake (One Bedroom) (and Sam Prekop - Who's Your New Professor)
Smog (all of it)
Bonnie Prince Billy (Lie Down the Light)
Fleet Foxes (i killed that album..can't listen anymore)
Fugazi (various albums...End Hits is so good)
The Raincoats
The Mountain Goats

Whistle while you work (then take a nap)

Sorry it has been so long! I have not had a day off in at least 6 weeks. I've been having people come in during the week and on weekends to work with me. I've been sewing 7 days a week for SO LONG! If you have sent me an email and I have yet to reply, please accept my apologies. I've been trying not to answer email in the middle of the day as those are my prime sewing hours. And, le sigh, I'm so tired by night time, I never make it all the way through the many messages in my inbox. So, you will hear from just may take me a few days. As well, if you're still waiting for an order. I have not forgotten about you. I promise! I am sewing in batches by style right now, as it is the only way I will get on top of orders. But, I'm so so close! Thanks for being so patient with me! I'll be back with more details on interesting things quite soon. Have a lovely day!

Street With A View

View Larger Map

Take a stroll down Sampsonia Way in Pittsburgh PA (my fav. city). I guarantee you will feel better after this virtual walk. Be sure to peek in doorways and down deep alleyways. Watch out for laser beams and sword fights, confetti storms and chickens. Be prepared for anything.

Click here for more info about Sampsonia Way. Take your walk first, though..:)

**note** i just realized a bunch of people posted about this (i've been on hiatus from blog reading for so long)...sorry to be redundant. i didn't post any credit for this post, because the credit goes to my husband who used to teach at carnegie mellon, where ben is a student.

End of Year Specials

What a lovely morning it is here in Western Mass. The sun is shining (after a dreary of all drearies day yesterday) and we are gearing up for a long sewing day. Before I get started, I wanted to let you know, there are a few things going on over the next month and a half that you may be interested free shipping from! Take a look through the Holiday Gift Guide from Modish to find out how. Also, if you are an antsy pantsy (like we usually are) you can find a few Moop bags at the fabulous Fawn & Forest. They are in stock and ready to ship!

digital poloriods !!!

I really really really want the Tomy xaio. Made by Zink and Tomy, has 5 megapixels, prints on the spot with no ink and it even makes sticky back prints! I love technology.
According to their website, it will be available on November 28th in Japan.
