This is from the Christmas week snow storm, a bottle of wine, and some boredom. I didn't think it ever got published anywhere.

Snow Fun!!

Charm Bracelet EXPLOSION

I must say BEST FABRIC EVER!!!!

I am calling it "charm bracelet explosion". I was sold when I saw there was a pair of scissors on it, and then I found the unicorn charm. It's silk, and I made some scarves out of my sample yardage. I purchased the rest from the jobber at the Seattle show, and am eagerly awaiting it's arrival.

I have a few of my photos from the shoot back, but am going to wait to post them all entire I have the entire set. I have one style already out and in stores. Ok screw it, here is the style I have out (the yellow print one):

I have stared sewing the hardest garment next. Well it's not that hard, but it is the most time consuming, and I have the most orders for it. I hope to chomp through a lot of it this weekend. Time for bed, I'm on hour 15 of my work day.

Attempting to step outside my own box....a little.

Yesterday Carter (click this to see her esty store) and I made a day trip up to Seattle for the NW Fabric Show. I was excited because one of my favorite jobbers was there, and I totally scored some super sweet fabrics for late Summer/Fall. I also decided to step out of my box a little and get some silks. The prints on them are amazing, and I just got enough to do a few garments and see how people react to them. I am also going to delve into a bit of scarf making. Not the winter variety, the lovely tie in your hair, and around your neck kind.

I realized that I haven't been much for posting photos lately. That is because my poor camera is on the fritz. Hopefully it's something simple, like a bad battery. I will investigate today

Off to sewing spring, which should be in stores this week. Please support your local economy, and SHOP LOCAL!
