Ok, I have been bad about blogging again!
















I still have been creating all kinds of cool stuff though! I also managed to paint my kitchen a nice sunny, buttery yellow and I made some retro curtains and hung an old wooden ladder over my antique table to dry my lavender and hydrangeas on.....I have to say, it turned out awesome looking...Looks like an old farmhouse kitchen which was kind of my idea. I have been scouring the local antique stores for red handled rolling pins and have found four so far so I have those hanging on the walls too and I like it a lot...Now all I need is a redone gas pump...Why do I want one? I don't know, I just do...and a coke cooler....ya never know, it could happen...





The fashion show that I have been talking about happened last Saturday...It was a whole lot of fun and we made a lot of money for hospice. I got a lot of requests to make things and some commissions out of it so that was cool....I did get my jacket done and it turned out good....I will maybe take a pic of it tomorrow...It was quite the embellished outfit. Nothing I will ever wear but it was perfect for the show. I actually have some one that wants to buy it and the vest too, so that is a great thing. I don't ever want to sew something with a lining again though...All that slippery stuff sliding all over the place! It is just more work than I want to do. I did buy some beautiful hand dyed silk and a pattern to make the coolest in the world three way wrap. We will see if I ever get to it!





I have been making some atc's the last few days trying to get things rolling again on one of my groups....They are all fabric with stuff on them and the theme is fabric with a bit of orange.....I also am working on a quilt with a "solo" panel...It is very 60's looking and has a beautiful raspberry batik as a base. I am going to call it "raspberry float." Also am showing a picture of my latest spread in the "color me silly" group altered journal round robin....Rachelle's theme is "pleasure" and yes I had some naughty ideas but I was good and did a layout on sewing and how it gives me pleasure.....I just have one more book to do then hopefully, I will get mine back full of gorgeous art! Currently, it is still lost somewhere in the Canadian wilds, but one can hope, right? Now back to the first season of Carnivale on dvd......Very strange so far, but I have been sucked in......

You are too funny on the pleasure journal! Probably best you kept it clean. I love the witch you made. And that's great that you got some comissions from the show. Way to go.
