I am so inspired by this beautiful crochet blanket from the ladies of The Purl Bee. I love the idea to just make one giant Granny Square as a blanket. The colors are gorgeous too! But the best part is that they have a really good tutorial for making Granny Squares! Now I just need to graduate to making giant Granny Squares.
Hello and and welcome again to our Thursday Poll!
Last week we voted on short skirts, and chose Bindi’s Studded Skirt as our current favorite!
This week I want to ask you about tunics (and dresses that can sort of double as tunics) since I have been hoping to add a few more to my wardrobe shortly! Check out of few of the ones we currently have in our collection below.
First the Santa Cruz River Tunic is shown below in grey.
Next is our 60 Miles North Dress in eggplant.
One of our former design team employees, Michelle, recently dug up our Art Director Doub’s glove project from many years ago, and posted it on her blog! You can see it above, it’s pretty fabulous – I couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys as well!
Here’s a little note from Doub about where the inspiration for this project came from:
Well what became fascinating for me when I started the glove project was how elaborately detailed each pair of gloves were. And with each glove it’s delicate little details really dictated each design. I had become obsessed with gloves and was scouring the city for them mainly for the strange need to cut one of the pair up into a silhouette. I still have such an appreciation for the amazing craftsmanship and design of gloves.
It really is a very inspiring project! And speaking of inspiration, our friend Michelle’s blog is called Inspiration Resource, and aptly so! You should definitely check it out if you feel so inclined…

I am totally amazed by this piece by Lynette Andreasen! She found an antique silver platter and embroidered an outline of an old image of her father’s family onto it. When I first saw the top picture, I thought it was embroidered leather and that it was very cool – so you can imagine my reaction when I found it was a silver platter – even cooler! Check out Lynette’s pictures too; she has an interesting little artist’s statement there.
