Currants - they're so dang cute! #orencofarmersmarket

I just have a couple recent cool-things to share today – alongside this photo of adorable currants from the farmer's market. (Incidentally, if you've been a follower of my little annual summer produce photography project, I'm still doing it, but it's all on Instagram now. Although I am keeping up the traditional Flickr set as well.)

First, Abby has a new blog series called The Pattern That Changed My Life. I'm the guest this week, and I talk about a funny little craft book called Retro Revamp that helped me out of a bad chapter of my life and into the current one. You can read the whole story over there.

Modern Patchwork Summer 2014

…And I just got my copy of the summer issue of Modern Patchwork. I have two projects in here: this Off Center Tote, and this Butterfly Kindle Case. (And isn't that butterfly fabric from Ellen Luckett Baker spectacular?)

There are a ton of beautiful projects in the issue – quilts and pillows, table toppers and coasters – and a great profile of the Cotton + Steel team. Check it out!
