the "Jenny" purse


This small purse is a custom order for a client named Jenny. She specified the size, handles, inside pockets and picked out the fabric. I think it turned out well- it's a cute size that can hold the essentials. Maybe I'll make some more in other colors...

Sewing Studio WIP







So- I am still trying to figure out how to arrange the new studio. What looks good on paper doesn't necessarily work out when you move the pieces in the real world- UGH!!! Oh well- it is a WIP-work in progress. Feel free to give me advice....and if you want to come over and take some of the things I can't fit anymore- let me know!

Custom ordered baby quilt. I am quite happy with this! The center fabrics were all from my stash. The border fabric is from Joannes and it ties it all together nicely- I think it's happy!

Custom order. Customer has a yellow dress that matches the yellow in the fabric- going to her sons' rehearsal dinner on a boat. This was fun to do! Inspired by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gardenhouse/5687795038/in/photostream/

Bride's "Necessity" Bag





This is a custom order for a bride- to keep 'necessities" in during her big day. It matches the colors of the bridesmaids dresses. Lots of pockets for different items.

New bag


This is my newest bag- vintage tablecloth piece and several coordinating newer fabrics. The double button is vintage. I decided to really mix up the fabrics on this one-with the back being completely different- you don't see the back much so I didn't want to waste my precious vintage tablecloth pieces on that- show them off on the front! I think it's fun- happy, bright colors.

Sewing....



Finished these 2 projects today. The pillow is made from a beautiful wool coat that belonged to a friend's Aunt. I had to put the labels and one of the buttons on it - how cool! The wool is sooo soft!
The bag is for another friend- I've had the fabric for years- she probably doesn't even remember I have it...I can be SO slow! I had fun with the adjustable strap.
Now- what to make next????? hmmmmmm

Spring Break



Lucky for me, my daughter, Kelsey, spent some time with me at the Gallery working on her art project. We had a lot of fun and both got work done, too! Those of you in WI , or who have heard of our political situation, may recognize what she is trying to portray in this painting....the finished product may be for sale soon!
She's back at school now and it's very quiet here without her!
