Casita Update - Keeping Up With Chris

Definitely time to de-clutter.  The task at hand is to toss old patterns and fabrics that I know I won't use; that's my goal.  Sewing, embroidery, knitting, crochet, gourd carving, rubber stamping, artsy stuff...too many hobbies.  I have been dabbling with machine embroidery most recently.  I am better at sewing garments than I am at making bags, purses, and small crafty items.  Why is that, I wonder?  Here's my most recent art piece; I call it "Olangee" (translation: Orange).

Mike and Me - The Wedding

Here we are...Michael and me...dancing at his wedding. As you might note, I'm not wearing the fabulous silver knit outfit that I sewed up (see May posting for picture). Instead, I opted for a traditional "Mother of the Groom" kind of suit which I found at Macy's. I did change the buttons on the jacket to pearl buttons surrounded by rhinestones, for added sparkle to the outfit. As for my other outfit...the sparkly is in my closet. I will wear it (I promise) another time. Mike and Ali are very happily married and we all had a great time celebrating in Boise, Idaho.
