Midwest Needles

Meet Midwest Needles newest mascot. 

Midwest Needles is Kate and Kerith, two girls who like vintage fabric, knitting, crocheting and sewing. {I am lucky enough to own one of their pretty cowls.} If you get a chance stop by their blog to get a peek into their lives or their etsy shop. I love this so much! 

Thanks for working with me girls!

To Do

My to-do lists never seem to stop.

My illustration for Illustration Friday. This weeks theme - chicken! While everyone was thinking about drawing chickens, I had an image of two kids standing outside a haunted house. Come on don't be such a chicken!

Inspired by For Me, For You's Bits of My Weekend, I decided to draw some bits of my weekend. However, my life isn't too exciting - aside from eating some good grapeleaves and playing too much Wii at my mother in laws - it was a pretty uneventful weekend.

Handsome Molly

"Wished I was in London, or some other seaport town, set my foot on a steamship and sail the ocean 'round. Sailing 'round the ocean, sailing 'round the sea, think of Handsome Molly wherever she might be."

A few years ago we almost moved to Asheville, NC, where I had imagined living in a bungalow on some land. We'd grow our own food and I'd play the banjo all day long. Instead we ended up in New Orleans for a year and then Milwaukee for half. Now we are planning on going back to where we started in March. Hello Chicago we now know that you are our home.
