Jingle all the way!

I'm participating in the Jingle Bash at Sons of Hermann Hall on November 22, presented by Etsy Dallas! I've been working on new items for the show -- felted ruffled scarves, neck warmers, and lariat style scarves! It should be great.

"Dress Sexy at My Funeral" Treasury

This might be one of my favorite Treasuries that I've been in so far! How funny and stylish and dark. I'm so glad she found my Victorian Flutter Shawl to include. It's a great fit! It is very dramatic and serious, but in a romantic fantasy kind of way. I love all the ruffles she included.


It is not surprising that I did not post anything for the month of September. Opening the new gallery has been completely consuming! What is shocking is that I managed to complete this beautiful new shrug. It sold within a few hours. It is one of my favorite things that I've made this year. It is so delicate and detailed with a really graceful flow. There is tie at the front or it can be left open. I love the colors and how they work together, but most of all I loved the challenge of figuring out how to make it work - how to shape the garment, when to increase, to decrease, and how to finish off.

I don't like to repeat myself and this was truly a one of a kind piece, but I'd like to play with this form again. I see more shrugs in my future.
