Wednesday Weekly Helen's Closet

Let’s focus on happy news today, shall we?  I am sending all the wonderful Americans I have met over the years lots of love, and any woman out there who feels how I feel today, well, I’m sending you a bunch extra. When times are uncertain and people are scared, the answer is not to point fingers and place blame, but to support and care for each other and for ourselves. We will get through this.  Just keep sewing 🙂

This post is so timely! I was just searching the other day for a listing of sewing podcasts and here you have one. I’m a huge fan of Johanna’s at the Last Stitch so I’m not surprised she would have a helpful list (I don’t know how I missed this on her blog but I’m really grateful you pointed it out!). I have an Inari on it’s way so I was happy to see that lovely black ponte one by the Doing Things Blog. Thank you for posting all these helpful links 🙂

Thanks so much for including my heart pocket tutorial! 🙂
