My Web page is back on line. Apparently all it was, was my credit card needed to be updated. Duhhh!
I'm completely hooked on the Design Star Challenge. I loved David's designs. I WANT DAVID TO WIN!!!! Please go vote for him!
Yesterday I started a new Reverse-A-Purse, & finished it today. Eventually it'll probably go to my DDIL, as I made it with her in mind, but for now it will go to Coupville Arts, to be one of my samples for the classes I'll be teaching there next April 29th - May 2nd. So if you want to take my my class, you can come to Whidbey Island & play with me, then the following week, I'm going to stay, & take Rayna Gillman's class. Wanna come too?
The purse actually encompasses all 3 classes I'll be teaching. The Threadpainting class will teach you how to make the flower on the purple side. I pieced this side, & used all commercial prints, except for my hand painted silk sheer, that I layered over the wild print, to tone it down a bit. The print is a challenge fabric from my Calendar Girls group. We were given a fat quarter & told to "do what ever we want with it", so this is what I did.
The strap was made with my thread play technique too.
The reverse side is a more casual, daytime look, with a little ocean wave print, which is perfect for my surfer girl DDIL.
