I’ve been sucked into the Pinterest craze and have a board of just beautiful pictures of sewing studios .

 I tend toward posting the perfectly organized ones with clean hard floors. Mostly because I’m stuck with carpet that I can’t pull up and I’m a hoarder in recovery that is just learning to throw all those tiny pieces of fabric away. (But I might NEED them… lol)

 On the other hand, I have a whole room for my hobby and an amazing old drafting table that adjusts heights at the push of a toe.  I like to look at the bright side.

Here is Jamie drafting a purse in “The Sweat Shop” as we like to call my studio. (you can see my hoarding tendencies on the bulletin board behind her) It might not be Pinterest ready but it sure cranks out some pretty things.

Our First Dealer’s Table

Jamie and Meg at the Dealer's Table

Jamie and Meg at the Rhymes With Stitch dealer’s table. It must have been early in the weekend since there are still lots of hats on the table.

And yes, in front of Meg, that is a gen-u-wine Hoss Cartwright hat; one of the few full-size hats that came home with us. Anyone need a last minute cowboy costume?
I love sewing.

Necronomicon 2011

with one comment

Meg, Jamie and Mel in Victoriana

A fun time was had by all at Necronomicon 2011. The Rhymes With Stitch gang had a fab time and looked wonderful.  The costumes were all sewn/repurposed by RWS with the exception of my corset, a 7 year old gold one made by Brute Force Leather , not surprisingly bought at Necro back when we were at the Crown (Sabal Park). My hair was done by the amazing Kristi Leow  from the Mission Aveda and the photos are by our favorite photographer, Kent

I love sewing!

Pictured is Meg’s latest embellishment project – this corset was to be ‘made steampunk’  for the lovely Julie from Stonehill. Meg used fabric paint, ribbon and a tassel to create a new look from a plain black corset.  Modeled by Jamie
