Since I can't rescue every animal I see that needs a home due to 3 souls currently living under my roof, I've turned my eyes to plants at Home Depot. Look at this Rubber Plant beauty I rescued yesterday. I just need to wash her leaves and she'll be ready to glow (more). 🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿
amespinosa : I have the same one!
millie_marl : I used to clean the leaves of mine with milk
maryomalleyart : I have to force myself to stay away from the plant department at Home Depot due to my overwhelming need to rescue every plant in there!
meigsotoole : @maryomalleyart I know!! I never leave there with out a plant. I got 3 yesterday! My mom rolled her eyes when I said I just wanted to look at the plants for a minute.

One of the many things I love about Roxbury is the old architecture. (That's an old carriage house to the left.) We have so many beautiful buildings, parks, and detail here. Our street is one of the last neighborhoods in Boston to have brick sidewalks. Horatio Harris park still has the very first street lights the city had. #Roxbury #fromwhereistand Those little things by the window are succulent leaves I'm propagating. 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱

dropdeadandwrought : I was thinking you went back to the home you moved out of. Is that your sisters place?
meigsotoole : @dropdeadandwrought no. I grew up in JP, my family still lives there. I live in Roxbury now.
dropdeadandwrought : A few friends have moved there too because of affordability. It's also good for kids and doggies I hear. I like Roslindale too. I just miss my soul town-Boston in general.

71/365 #yearofmaking: Adventures in sewing - I had such a great time sewing this top. I learned a lot, and was reminded of things I forgot. Something I forgot unfortunately is how sensitive my skin is (I learned this from knitting big time), so when I tried the top on even with a tank it's unbearable on my skin. 😭😭😭😭😭 As we say here in Boston, irregardless I learned a bunch and reignited something once really loved to do. I think I'll hang the top above my work area to remind myself of everything I'm learning on my #yearofmaking. All very good stuff! #makemarch #100actsofsewing @creativelive

meigsotoole : @pikaland true true. But you make things every day!
heroincredible : Loooove the pink! +1 to long sleeve shirt as layer underneath. I have one by Three Dots that would be perfect but gap has a bunch of cotton ones too.
meigsotoole : @heroincredible I love Three Dots! I'll definitely check out the gap, thanks for the tip.
jenacoray : pretty!
dropdeadandwrought : We don't connect enough for you to know this but you have always been a hero to me. I just keep it under wraps. ⭐️ @meigsotoole
meigsotoole : @dropdeadandwrought thank you. Take care of yourself.
dropdeadandwrought : I'll do my best 😘
dropdeadandwrought : Would still love your help with my biz. Just tell me were to click to pay!!! @meigsotoole

Making bias tape for the first time ever! The top is almost done! Fixed the bunching under the arms, I was totally not paying attention to @sonyaphilip's directions. I love learning new skills around hobbies I've always been afraid of branching out in. Sonya turned me onto @woolful's podcast where they talk specifically about this (ep 9 with @karentempler/@fringesupplyco and @thecraftsessions)'s all a skill, if you know how to sew/knit etc you're already there! Highly recommend Woolful podcast for all you fiber loving ladies...I listened all day yesterday as I sewed and felt so inspired and content. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– #yearofmaking #makemarch #100actsofsewing @creativelive

meigsotoole : @sonyaphilip it is so true. I talked a lot about this with @kpwerker on the podcast last year. It's so funny the limitations we set.
sonyaphilip : @thecraftsessions you put so many of my own thoughts so elegantly into words, thank you.
sonyaphilip : @meigsotoole exactly and so young too - I'm not an artist. Kids saying that about themselves like it's preordained.
meigsotoole : @sonyaphilip yes. That's one of the things that has been so eye opening for me with #yearofmaking...allowing myself to get outside my comfort zone. Can't wait to chat. We're gonna have so much to talk about. ☺️
meigsotoole : @thecraftsessions thank you, it's a print I made with @jenhewett's online block printing class. Yes, that podcast really resonated with me. All so true.
ccerruti : Oooooh
havecompany : girl we are on the same damn page, right down to the bias tape
meigsotoole : @havecompany ha! I love it. Hey have safe trip home! Loved the visit with @secretholidayco. I get to meet her finally in a few weeks.

Met @jamiejhagen for coffee this morning, a bobbin tagged along, wrapping itself all over Ula cafe until a woman let me know. πŸ˜€ #yearofmaking

craftivista : Yesss! You were just showing how you are totally all craft all the time! ;)
sonyaphilip : Sewing problems.
meigsotoole : @craftivista so good. At first I was embarrassed...then realized nope. 😊
wonderthreads : So funny! This happened to me once at a rest stop (a spool weaving a trail from my car to the bathroom) and I felt the same way. πŸ‘
meigsotoole : @wonderthreads I love it!
meigsotoole : @sonyaphilip πŸ˜‚
thegabfab : Lol πŸ’—
jamiejhagen : @meigsotoole well that's amazing!

70/365 #yearofmaking: The top is coming together. Sadly, even though @sonyaphilip sent me a link to a tutorial, I still made bunchy armpits. I wasn't paying attention. Gonna redo tomorrow! It's been over 10 years since I've sewn clothing for myself, so I've gotta be patient. (Don't tell anyone but I already have a @sewaholic long skirt, @wikstenmade top, and another Sonya pattern ready to get cracking on. 0-60 is how I like to do things πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)

meigsotoole : @makermaker yeah I don't know what I did wrong. Was tired towards the end and just wasn't paying attention.
sonyaphilip : Shoot! That is frustrating. I'm pretty sure you can undo just the armpits and re-stitch it rather than taking the whole seam out. @makermaker is right, it's all about the angle - making it *not* ninety degrees. Let me know if you need help.
sonyaphilip : (I do love that print)
meigsotoole : @sonyaphilip thank you, it's totally me. I was going too fast I need iron flat the edges and I think I'll be ok.
sonyaphilip : @meigsotoole As I always say, why do something once when you can do it two or three times? Cement that learning! I am a Born-Again-Ironer. Pressing those seams flat will make a big difference.
meigsotoole : @sonyaphilip LOL. My Grampa used to say "Give it the old college try 6 or 7 times!" πŸ˜‚
sonyaphilip : @meigsotoole your Grampa sounds like a man after my own heart!
brienne_moody : Beautiful, armpits or no:)
