Skirt Comission

Not quite like the sample pictures she sent. She said surprise her and to put my own spin on it. So I made something that I feel is very versatile. Perfect for any occasion. Made the waist band dip in the front as I was pretty sure she had bellybutton adornment and guess what - I was right.
She asked for some colour with the options being Red, Bright Pink, Purple and Bright Green. I had this wonderful green trim and I dug and found some awesome plaid purple/black trim so the decision was made. I also came across this totally awesome orange fringe that I have and now need to design something to put it on. It actually looked wonderful draped across the skirt but was afraid that it may put to much of a Halloween vibe to it.
She's smiling and she wouldn't take it off before leaving so I guess that means she liked it.

Art Among The Ruins

A quick picture of my tent at The Art Among The Ruins in Newburgh. It was a beautiful sunny day. My new camp table which rolls up worked great and I think I devised a method for a change room. Though people kept asking where I got my curtains or if they were perhaps for sale. I guess I should of bought all the bright sheets GT had that day and resold them(HAHA).
A shot looking down over the hill past some of the flowerbeds.
A slightly different view. I think in the end there were 50 artists participating.
A mushroom that munchkin discovered around the corner of the house at the show. Of course I was dragged over to take a picture. She knows her Mommy's fondness for mushrooms. Aren't they pretty? They were a wonderful combination of browns though towards the end of their lifespan.

Something I completed this weekend for munchkin while I sat and watched Scooby-Doo movies. She luvs the movies but needs me near by for the extra scary creatures.
The pillow is 18 by 18 and perfect for her to sit on or cuddle with. And its PURPLE. So she adores it.

Fighting Back?

Does your fruit fight back. These are some strawberries determined to make it through the season. They are ready and are recruiting from the young ones still on the plants.
I know I am being silly once again.

P 'N' P

P 'N' P aka Pretty in Pink and pale Blue. A petal skirt made with two Tommy Hilfiger golf shirts.
Not normally a pastel person but when I saw these golf shirts I instantly thought flowers thus one petal skirt created. Even left part of the button placket on the front panels which I think are a nice addition to the completed project. But then a top half needed to be made thus the bright pink jacket with some scrap of golf shirts used for embellishing. It fits me perfectly so now I need to find a blonde aprox the same build because I think it would look stupendous with a little cami under the jacket on someone who is tanned and blonde. Isn't it weird how sometimes you can envision a complete look? I probably should make a cami to go with it too. (Pink,blue, off-white - hhhmmm?)
