Going with a bit of a Paris theme in this dress with a matching headband. Size 3T and will be for sale when I get a both or part of a both in Poulsbo. Watch for announcement.
I decided to try to come up with some fun throw pillows, more for sale than personal use; so made this one this afternoon, using a piping foot for the first time.
This last Friday my next door neighbor’s granddaughter beautifully modeled two of my recent dress designs. The top one shown here has a Paris theme with a beret made to wear with the dress. Hadley gave out white carnations to all the women attending the Mother’s Day luncheon. The dress features a T-shirt top with a Paris appliqué taken from the fabric.
The second dress is a class sailor dress with a fun hat to match. Both dresses are available to buy. This is new to me, so I working on pricing. Would love input.
This is another one of my “Fast & Furious” dresses. I had fabric left over from a Fund Raiser I helped on for the Boys & Girls Club, and thought it might be interpreted into a cute T-shirt dress. I am starting to think taking a larger piece and adding it to the top of the dress is more fun than something small. Most people just add a small appliqué to the bodice and it looks a little floaty, so I thought I would try something slightly different. I loved Paris and hope to go back again soon.

Today I was asked to describe my art in ten words or so. The painting shared today is named “Three is Not Company”. What I like to do is make you think about what I have painted and realize there is more than goes into a painting than you might think. It was the day, it was Paris, is amazing how uncomfortable the woman on the right looked as the man in the middle was intensely interested in the woman on the left.
What do you think, is it a good description of my art?
Let me just say first, that I really do LOVE men and have a wonderful husband. I took the photo of these women in Volterra, Italy and they just seemed to be having the best time together. While in Paris I bought a post-card with this man silhouetted walking away. The photo of the castle seemed magical to me. The women seemed to not have a care in the world, so it just fell together.
Love the idea on this but did not like how in the original some of the transfer was a little cloudy. This is great fun to do and watch art dvds while you are playing/working.
Thinking about developing card series using these and putting them on small blocks. Kind of sharing my sense of humor and view on life.
Would love to shear what you think.

While in Paris this last year, it rained and was windy and was still Paris! Even in the rain Paris is beautiful and romantic and my soul longs to go there again. Eat a chocolate croisant for breakfast with the best Capuchino, any where in the world.
