Dear Busy Ones,
Do you know The Hundred Dresses? By Eleanor Estes? It's been on my mind because I have wanted to show you this wonderful project, 100 Acts of Sewing. I had the pleasure of meeting this fine person at the Maker Faire a few years ago. You can purchase her dress pattern here, on Etsy.
When you aren't sewing up a dress in homage to Sonya Philip, you can read Eleanor Estes books. I expect you might think that you don't have time for reading children's authors. To this objection, I quote another great author, Kate Douglas Wiggan, from Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm: "When joy and duty clash, let duty go to smash."
Feeling a little less busy yet? Here's something related, I think, and quite possibly my favorite youtube video.
