Looking Forward to 2017
Stop reading now if you don't want to read some politics and philosophizing. 2016...where to start?  It's been kind of a soggy year.  Right now I have fuzzy brain due to some cold medicine, but looking back...soggy is the best adjective I can come up with t...

Fall Knitting
I don't have much time for sewing, but I do have the odd 20 minutes free here and there, and that's perfect for knitting something not-too-complicated.  I'm in the middle of several lace projects, but that doesn't match the "not-too-complicated" requirement...

The name says it all!  I finished this t-shirt a couple of weeks ago and as per usual, haven't had time to take proper pictures. So the kitchen mirror takes it again! I combined two Southwestern style prints and I love the combination; it screams ME!!! I ha...

Jewelry Making + a Sneak Peek
I've been refreshing my jewelry-making skills.  Here's my most recent creation (last night, ha!) all curled up resting while the glue is drying.  Speaking of, the close-up helps me see a glob there to scrape off! I was inspired by a tutorial I spotted on Pi...

Color Work
I fell off the bandwagon a bit with the Colette Wardrobe Architect project, but I'm back now! I recently made these color palettes for the fall season, using the Colour Lovers website : And several years ago I made this bright palette, which I think still r...

More or Less Finished Objects
This combination of short-pants and waistcoat are basically completed.  It's for a costume, so I plan to add some bling bing, but these are the basic pieces. Made from Simplicity 2556, a Project Runaway pattern.  I think this pattern may be out of print.  I...

Colette Wardrobe Architect Experimentation: Silhouettes with Pants/Leggings (aka Fun with Polyvore)
Continuing with my Colette Wardrobe Architect experimentation, here are my other Polyvore creations, this time, with pants.  Or leggings, because I do sometimes wear those with a tunic or long shirt.  All of these silhouettes are for the fall or winter seas...
