Presents 2009

I was very happy that this year I made sure a few of my presents were specially handmade.

Since this was the first year my son was attending pre-school, I made three little christmas angels for each of his teachers.

An Angel

And I had to make at least on of my son's gifts! He loved it, a cute little stuffed owl that he calls, "Gufo", that's owl in Italian. He does not go to bed without him.

And for my husband I made him a nice hat, with a lovely pinstriped lining!

A Bouquet

And using remenants from my wedding dress I made a bouquet of flowers for my mother-in-law.

We had a wonderful Christmas, now back to making thing for my shop!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! And Happy 2010!!

That Darn Internet!

Our internet is acting up and at the moment I do not have time to sit down and figure out the problem. (I am the computer technician of the house.) It just has something to doing with uploading photos! So frustrating!!
Therefore I have not been able to post my two newest posts. But at the moment I am in the middle of several projects for clients, plus Christmas present making.
As soon as I figure it out I will post those two additional blog!
I hope everyone is having happy holidays!!!

The Week.

Apart from having a cold and my son having the chicken-pox I continued to move along!

One to my list, now I have a dress ( which I am awaiting fabric) , a men's hat, and a blouse to complete. The list never seems to get shorter, and that's a good thing because it means I continue to work!!

Dress Project

So I sent off the package to the UK! It not only contained the desired dress, but a matching bolero and matching headpiece! I hope she enjoys!!


I completed the black woolen women's hat with black veil!

I love creating such classic lovliess! I am so glad people still request them and wear them!!

A Little Sweetness

And since we are now into December and all the Christmas decorations around town are now up I was in the holiday mood.

Candy Striped Fascinator

Using a buckram wire based disk, I constructed this lovely fascinator / headpiece!

I had the feathers, the fabric, and the veiling! It was completed yesterday morning! More photos and purchasing can be found in my Etsy shop.

I am off to the workroom!!
