Back In The Saddle Again!

. . . and I couldn't be happier! After a very, very long hiatus, I finally have my very own creative space.

Things are still in a bit of a shambles. I'm waiting on my handy man hubby to help put up the shelves this weekend. In the meantime, the yarn and notions are still in boxes and a variety of things haven't found a home yet.

But I set up my sewing station and couldn't help myself -- I started designing.

After the Fiber Arts Fiesta in Albuquerque last week, I visited my friend Joann Winkler at Vintage Cowgirl in Old Town. She has some of my garments in her boutique. I was so inspired after looking at her new selections for this year that I sketched out a plan for a new jacket. So yesterday, I pulled out my inspiration notebook and using two pieces of rayon chenille fabric which had been woven of the same warp but different wefts, I began to cut and sew. Today I have a completed garment. Yeehah!

  1. Wow, Lois! That jacket is beautiful! You have certainly been blessed with creativity and the 'know how' of putting things together and creating something beautiful! I love it!
