The weather here in Missouri is gloomy, but mild. Can't wait for Spring to get here. It's been a long cold Winter. Today I decided to make what I call a fabric gift book with pockets to stick things in and small places for them to write on and of course vintage photos. There is nothing I like to do better than make a project to give to a friend. Here are a few of the fabrics I am thinking of using. Seems I always lean towards the creams, browns, greens and a splash of red. All my favorites.
Tomorrow my sister is coming down and we are going to go to some of our favorite antique malls and a couple of antique shops we have never been to. We are always looking for old things to use on our projects She lives about an hour away from me so our trips are always great fun.
Yesterday I worked on this collage. I am going to hang it with the piece of satin laying at the top. Hope everyone has a great day. Let's all wish for Spring and maybe it will happen sooner.
I love old and time worn things and that is what I portray in my art. Old fabrics are my passion and I am always on the hunt for them. I live with my husband and our little dog cricket in a suburb of St. Louis MO. I have two daughters and four beautiful grand daughters.
