I just got a copy of the new ReadyMade, and my article on Diane Gilleland‘s website DIY Alert is up front in the Re-View section. I’m so pleased!

The Re-Fashion issue is stellar through and through — I especially love Lisa Congdon‘s vintage fabric patchwork pillow, the charming feature on Alyson Fox‘s house, and the Re-Make craft-room organizing ideas.

In other DIY Alert news, Diane has put together a cool little spin-off: a free Crafter’s Guide to Portland, listing dozens of stores, studios, and all kinds of resources here in town, organized by neighborhood.

You can pick up a copy at the DIY Table at the next Crafty Wonderland on June 10. The featured project is awesome, too: Can Cozies for Father’s Day, taught by Jen Neitzel of DIY Lounge. Don’t miss it!

And in case you were wondering what these oh-so-lovely backgrounds in the first two pictures are, Andrew and I stopped at the thrift store in Centralia on the way home yesterday and I picked up a couple of vintage sheets in the spirit of Jenny‘s Thrifty Tuesdays. I’m thinking some little log cabin baby quilts might be on the horizon — I love these prints, and there’s not a pink princess or a blue sports implement in sight. I’m definitely a child of the 70s… yellow, green and orange are big favorites of mine.
