Congratulations to Nang! Thanks to all who played along, boy there's nothing like a give-a-way to coax you lurkers into the open, ha! Being the endless pit of validation that I am, this has been a very indulgent week for me. With the face to face of the craft show, and all your nice comments, and etsy purchases I am overwhelmed and spurred on to create more! Yes, I've been away from the sewing machine for all of a week now, and I'm itching. Speaking of which, here is a pile of fabrics that is currently sitting on my sewing table, trying to seduce me with their beauty. These colors are making me drool right now, I just bought the dupioni silk yesterday, and I can't stop looking at it. It's got that shimmery warp/weft thing going on, one is a bright magenta/raspberry and the other is a peachy color. It combines to make that ethereal pinky-peach blush tone that I love so much.
I've got a design in my head simmering, something involving corsetting and harlequin diamonds (again)but I'll have to sit on it for a day or two.
Lest you think I'm all work and no play, I am going to a concert tonight in Boston. We're going to see one of my favorite groups ever Collective Soul. Many people are familar with their 90's hits, but since they've gone Indie, they don't get alot of press. The work they done since then only seems to get better, and the latest album they are out promoting now, AFTERWORDS, might just be my favorite. YOUTH is pretty amazing too. I think they are brilliant. Check them out, you will be surprised. Ok, have a great weekend everyone, and thanks again for the sweet comments!
