Long time no see

I can not believe it has been just over a month since my last post. Not sure what I have been doing, but there you go.
Once we got back from market it was time to start summer demos. Last summer we did free demos every other Wednesday. Our customers seem to really like them and we packed the shop. I offered to do the first demo since I knew the boss was really busy.  And I was really excited to do a couple of things we saw at Market.
At the big Clover booth they had an awesome display of Kanzashi flowers. I was in love. ( you know how I am). As soon as we got home P ordered them so that I could make some. I made some flowers.

I made some pony tail holders, a headband, and a hair comb.

I embellished a T-Shirt.

I also made a Fascinator.

They were lots of fun to make. I plan to make more for embellishments.

I also made this bag for the shop in some fun summer colors. The bag is The Trixie Bag. I taught a class on the bag at the end of June. It is always fun to see how projects come out in other fabrics.

More later. Still haave two demos to tell you about. And a class that I took.
Keep stitching.


  1. there you are! Those flowers are fabulous! Love the Fascinator - have you found a suitable do to wear it to? The Trixie bag looks like lots of fun - you've been busy!

  2. Great to hear from you! Are the flowers fabric origami? They are really stunning!


  3. All of the flowers are very pretty, and the large white one reminds me of the dahlias Mother used to grow. Beautiful! Are they difficult to make? ---"Love"

  4. Those flowers do look like a lot of fun to make. I think my daughter would have a blast trying this out. Did you need a special tool to make them or just a set of instructions?

  5. What a fun-filled post! Awesome flowers, especially the fascinator, and that bag is adorable.

  6. What a busy gal you have been. These flowers do look like fun! Ohhh, something else to add to the "I want to do" list.


  7. Love the flowers! I just bought two of these template sizes and can't wait to try them out myself!
