introducing...

Julie Rose Sews Romano one pretty thing
well, hello there darlings.  today is the first installment of a new feature called 'one pretty thing,' where I'll share one of my favorite possessions with you and give you a peek into my home and my workspace!

today I'd like you to meet my little green squirrel.  I got this little guy a few weeks ago I think he's such a cutie!  I love how it looks like a tiny shaped hedge, or a stone sculpture covered in moss.

when I'm sewing, he lives on the windowsill of my craft room, but the rest of the time he stays right on my sewing machine. 

right now I'm making a dress from a beautiful vintage silk dupioni that my dad chose for me at an estate sale a few years ago-- it's almost finished, so you'll be seeing it soon!  

are you working on any fashion or craft adventures?

    1. Aw, thanks! A contest is a great idea, none of the names 've come up with are grabbing me. I'm so glad you like the 'one pretty thing' feature, there's a new one going up tomorrow!
