Hello Everyone,

Whew, what a great weekend I had!! My friend Victoria (a.k.a. Bumble Beans) came for the weekend with her daughter... B. We had a wonderful time sewing and chatting. I am looking forward to seeing her again in just a few short weeks!

Anyway, here is a sneak peek at what I worked on...

Yes, I finally got to play with all those silks that I bought a while back, a little twisting project. And I just love them. I think I need more.

Here is Victoria working. Look at how fast she is sewing, you can barely see her one hand it is a blur. Wow!

Guess who else stopped by? I bet you may have seen this quilt here. We wish she could have stayed longer, but it was oh so good to see her.

Here is Victoria laying out her design on my very handy design floor. By the way, she didn't work on what she had planned on working on, I kind of messed that up for her by giving her a significant part of this design.

Here is how my project started. Beautiful silk squares bordered by black silk. But wait that doesn't look like pinwheels... keep on reading...

Ooops, another curious visitor. My Pavi needed to see what we were doing. I think we had his cat seal of approval.

Here Victoria's beautiful creation. Now what got her started was the circular wagon wheel behind the Virgin Mary. That was my fault. But I just knew that she would transform it into something wonderful. She isn't done yet either. Looking forward to seeing more of this.

This was my creation. All silk dupioni and I just love it!! There will be a tutorial on this one coming very, very soon to this blog!! Also, the tool that I used can be found in my shop, here.

By the way, thank you all so much for you input on my last post. Victoria had to throw a monkey wrench in that and told me she really liked Kona Mango with it... I guess that was only fair, as I messed up her original sewing plans for the weekend.

*** This week's special in the shop... All 1930s repros are marked to $6.95 per yard***

Until Next Time...
