Where have I been and what have I been up to?

After delivering Jolie en Violette, the client let me know that the gift was well received and liked! They've found a perfect spot to hang it already. Yeah!

In the meantime, I've not been able to spend much time working but have spent time creating and figuring what I want to create next. Stay tuned... I haven't decided -- there are too many to choose from.

Oh and I have a little business trip all next week out of town (for the mortgage paying job) -- that may slow me down a bit or not! Time will tell.

Jolie en violette

Delivery was on Monday to the client. She did love it! She said it was exactly what she hoped it would be. Ah another satisfied customer. We talked about another possible quilt for her niece and so we'll see! Yeah!

Dresses, Dresses, Dresses - Finished!!

It's done and I like it so much more than the first one I did! The colors the client picked out are spectacular. The embellishments almost decided which ones went where. Too fun!

I deliver it to the client on Monday. I truly hope she likes it. I'm sure she will.

I present "Jolie en violette"

Dresses, Dresses, Dresses!

Yes it's been over a month since the last post! The mortgage paying job took me out of town for over 18 days then just regrouping. It feels good to get back to my soul fulfilling fun! I kept up my creative journal while traveling and of course had to buy a few things for embellishments on the current project. had a fabulous sale and I got a little carried away but what fun to have those wonderful packages awaiting my return (it was pretty awesome to come home to my husband too)!

So I got things somewhat under control at the office and took three days off this week to get this next commision completed. Another dresses quilt - 9 dresses (panels) with three borders. Accessoring the dresses is the part I cannot wait to start. I had to go shoe, jewelry and purse shopping for each outfit. Those packages will be arriving in the next few days - thank goodness for EBAY!

The quilt came to life today. The nine dresses look great and the colors (fuschia and sage) look great but I added the last border today (after a trip to Vogue Fabrics) of fuschia dupioni silk. Rich colors and the perfect addition to the surround the "closet" of dresses.

Judge for yourself! I'll publish more photos as I get it completed.
