Loving: All Stitched Up Edition

A mishap involving some plant watering, a slippery patio, and a serious lack of grace landed me at the emergency room Sunday afternoon getting three stitches in my shin. Good times.

Surprisingly, in addition to the pain (actually not that bad) and the humiliation (worse than the pain), I felt a bit of the bad assery, as I've gone four decades without a single stitch, and now I feel like I have an official battle wound. Of course my battle is aiding wilting plants trying to survive the punishing Texas heat, but it's a battle nonetheless...

So in honor of my stitches I'm going to love on some knots again (this is becoming a bit of a trend for me -- the knots, not the stitches...hopefully -- witness here and here).

Let's start with Liz Robb's insanely lovely fiber art above (via Remodelista). Her instagram has become one of my faves. Just full of goodness...


Then there's the matter of Electric Feather's insanely chic knotty Infinite Halter Top.


And my beautiful and talented friend Amy Nordstrom's Lattice Cuff. I wear that bad boy nearly every. single. day.


Also a bit enamored of Callahan's lovely crochet dresses...


and a still life of sculptural knotted accessories, both via Lisa Says Gah (a favorite new online shop and blog)...Obsessed. Full stop.


And last but not least, my go-to summer weekend tote in all it's rope-tastic, macrame goodness...

This is inspiring for the look I'm using for my new bar cart.

Oh my...can't believe you like Lisa Says Gah! My daughter is the model for the latest campaign! And I looked for your macrame bag the first time you showed it...to no avail...

Who made that bag? and so funny, that Lisa link!
