I always meant to make “Read This” a regular feature, but then I didn’t. So to begin with, I’m going to recommend two bloggers who curate link love posts consistently, and who do such a fantastic job of it that I pretty much always find half a dozen things I want to read from them:
» Bobbi from Today I’m Bobbi does This and That (nearly) every Friday, which covers everything from politics to events to design to random funny and charming things to brighten your day. I’m in it primarily for the “important” stuff, which I don’t get a lot of elsewhere, but I loved this Sarah Jessica Parker interview she linked on March 21. So sweet.
» Sarah from XO Sarah does Blog Love every Saturday. She focuses on articles about small business, entrepreneurship and design. I really needed this post about fear of failure that she linked last week. I just realized I also have this post she wrote bookmarked, which runs along the same lines. Super worth a read.
And now, because I’m too lazy to figure out how to transfer my Chrome bookmarks to my tablet and I always find myself wishing I had my sewing bookmarks handy on there, all the non-clothing sewing-related stuff I’ve got in my bookmarks:
PATTERNS AND TUTORIALS

I hope someone else finds this useful, but if not, at least I will! Happy sewing to me!
