weekend reading

Have I got a lot of links for you. That's what happens when you don't post for a month but do keep bookmarking cool stuff! 

First up, I have to mention my newest music obsession. A friend invited me to go see Father John Misty with her last week. I had heard some of his music here and there on KXT and had given his newest album, Pure Comedy, a few listens. I've had his other albums for a while as well but hadn't really given them a good listen. So we go to the show and you guys. I was blown away. It was one of the best shows I have been to this year (and trust me, I have gone to tons of shows this year) and I had all of his songs stuck in my head. I made a playlist from the setlist of the show and listened to it all day long after the show. Then I started listening to I Love You, Honeybear and found that I didn't want to stop listening to it, so I think I have heard it approximately 100 times this week. I'm in love. I ended up driving a not insignificant number of miles to pick up some FJM vinyl because that is who I am as a person. If you ever get the chance to see him, whether you know his music or not, please go. 

Now that my fangirling is done, let's get onto some other links!

Um yes, I would like to make the top and dress versions of this pattern

Fabric bleeds, ugh! They're the worst. Suzy did a great job of providing lots of options for fixing and preventing them.

Loved this peek into Abigail Halpin's sketchbook.

Fast fashion has a price, people

When you're taking a break from things that hurt your arm, you gotta have SOME entertainment. This list helps

Amy Blackwell is my new fave artist, especially her Girl with a Pigeon piece!

It's October which means cooler weather is (hopefully) on its way. What better way to warm up than with red wine hot chocolate?!

The quilt police are the worst but Karlee found a silver lining and made THE RADDEST quilt! Also, if anyone ever ripped one of my quilts in half y'all would hear about it bc I'd be in prison for murdering said person.

Def have been watching this video off and on for a few weeks now. I already lurve Lisa Hannigan but that orchestra is amazing!


Digging this playlist.

This made me laugh so hard that I was crying and snorting. 

I wanna knit this top and this blanket real bad.

And finally, The Knit Show with Vickie Howell has finally premiered on YouTube! I have been watching it every morning while I eat breakfast and it's a great way to start my day. 

See y'all next week!
