It's refreshing to see re-use sewing in the mainstream. It might be making it a little harder for me to find my favorite materials at the thrift store, but the UP was never a bastion of style. When we made Erin & Tony's wool blanket, it took us months to collect enough wool sweaters that didn't have Green Bay Packer logos on them.
My neighbor also turned me on to the Soule Mama blog, which I have really come to love. I always wanted to hate blogs because they seemed so self-serving to me (who wants to read all of my mental vomit?), but there are some out there that are actually pretty fun to read. Good writers, good topics, good vibes. Soule Mama is one of them.
So you're probably wondering why I bothered to start a blog myself? Good question, and I've really thought about it. But that's a topic for another post.
