Spring inspiration



We had our first CRAFT:a creative community meeting yesterday and it was a blast. It was so nice to see old friends and meet some new soon to be friends. Well the first spring show is scheduled the first Sunday in March and I really need to get my butt in gear. I purchased some cute Russian nesting dolls fabric (remember the $40 spool of thread?) and made a new bag. But the fabric has inspired me to do something else. Go take a look at the "New" picture album and let me know what you think. Real art is not my forte, so please be kind. Not that I think this is real art but you know what I mean, I prefer fabric and thread. I think she will be on a messenger bag of some sort . I am also working on a full apron, not the half apron I usually do. I have found a great pattern (I know, I'm breaking down and will "try" to use one), and will see how it works. The pattern may be found at www.montessoribyhand.blogspot.com if you care to peek. I contacted her and have permission to sell goods using her patterns. I don't know if you realize how nice that is most goods made from patterns may not be sold. But as long as she gets the kudos she is cool with it. And by now you know about the Boo boo bags that will be available for spring. Of course I will have the usual suspects...handbags, wristlets, aprons, comp book covers, kid art books, water bottle holders.

Hello Kim,
Thank you so much for your kind words about my babushka dolls! It is a little thrill for me every time someone buys one! I see you make your own sweet version too. She is wonderful!
