Sew Much Fun

Spent the better part of the weekend making a dress for the Girl Child.
The dress is linen. I love the look of linen but after you sit down once it looks like you have slept in it. She doesn't mind that messy style. The flower is coffee dyed bits and pieces of fabric and lace. Some of the fabric has been stamped with text.

Played with UTEE. The face and wings are out of UTEE.

On drift wood with fibers and copper wire.

Play Time

Hubby is out of town. Both kids are busy having a life. That means I got to play the other night. My desk was in dire need of being cleaned. Rather than throwing away or putting away I decided to see what I could come up with using the pile at hand.

Little dolly. I had found a small spool in a thrift store. The desire was there to alter her face, but I refrained. It was very hard. Looking at her now I think I should have done something. She is all glued and done. Don't you just hate to take things apart after you have them all done? I'll just go with her. She is little only about 6 inches.

I had been making charms for a swap and had all the soldering paraphernalia out. Kinda fun. The guy at the photography studio where daughter had her senior pics done really liked it. Her photos look like crap,so she has to have those retaken.

Some retail (esty)therapy this is from birdfromawire. She does amazing things with wire check her out.
