A Gilded Garment

What is it about anything gold and shiny? I mean, really. With fabrics–I’m like a bird attracted to shiny things. I find myself naturally gravitating to the metallic fabrics whenever I go into a fabric shop, and then while handling them I’m thinking about design possibilities and talking myself into reasons for buying said fabrics.

Statement Kimono

Sure, it was 95 degrees when we took these pictures, but thank goodness for fun kimonos to throw on in the summer air conditioning! You know how it goes…you’re boiling hot on a 90 some degree day in the middle of summer and all you really want to do is jump in a pool or […]

The Fuzzy Bomber Jacket

It’s funny, as I sit here posting this and looking at the photos which were taken yesterday, and then look outside the window…something is missing. The snow. As you’ll see in the pics…there is snow on the ground. And less than 24 hours later, it is all gone. Weird how it can take a while […]

Winter Cozy

It’s that time. Time to start cozying up for winter. The cold kind of stinks, yeah…but that just means there’s all this opportunity for warming up and staying toasty :) To be honest, in the winter I am often donning a hat and scarf when I’m sitting at my sewing machine and with tea or […]
