i'm a model.

(okay, well, sort of...)
a while back, i was overjoyed in being asked by my friend lotta jansdotter to be photographed for her new book. how cool is that? i still can't believe it, but last weekend i found myself sitting at the victory in brooklyn, trying not to look like i really had no idea what i was doing. i'm not sure if i succeeded, but it sure was a lot of fun. i got to model a really cool fabric necklace that lotta made.

lotta's new book is about sewing and it will be published in japan and in the usa in the spring of next year. it looks like it will be a super book, full of beautiful design and craft ideas. i just can't wait to see it. i really love her other two books - if you don't have them yet, go get them here.

oh and also...
two new shops...

+ grace over at design*sponge has a wonderful new shop full of limited editions by some my favorite people. go take a look!

+ the super ladies of brooklyn's sodafine have a new on-line shop.
good stuff!
