Girl Party!

As many of you know, my sister got married yesterday.  I'm a little biased, but I'm pretty sure it was the most wonderful wedding I've ever seen!  It consumed pretty much all of my making time this summer, and it totally paid off. Everything was perfect.  I don't have have pictures yet (sorry!), but I'll get some soon.

In the meantime, here's some bachelorette party fun!  Much classier than Party City's options, in my opinion.

I made Claire a tulle veil and giant bachelorette button/pin/award, which she actually wore in public, along with the awesome sequin dress that I brought for her to wear. And the giant gold jewelry. The rest of us had matching (and much smaller) buttons.  All the pink and orange paper I used came from this awesome vintage wrapping paper.

All us lovely ladies in Fells Point, Baltimore.

It was a fun night!

Cathedral Window Process

I have a lot of travel coming up in the next month and half and so, and I always need a little project to work on for long hours in cars.  I've been wanting to try the cathedral window quilt for quite a while, so I got some pieces ready for my trip to Baltimore about a week and half ago.  There is a fantastic tutorial at the Hyena In Petticoats blog.

It's perfect for me, all hand stitched, I can use my pretty vintage fabric scraps, it incorporates some origami folding, you stitch the squares together as you go, and it's not backed, so I can stitch squares together until i'm bored, and then it'll be done!  I'm thinking my first attempt will end in pillow size.

Here are a few process photos, it's great fun!

Website Updates!

I spent the last few days working hard to get my website up to date and doing a little rearranging.  There are a few more projects that will be coming in the near future, but it's looking good!  I also added my senior show artist statement to the Alphabet (Geometric) project for those of you who are interested in reading what I learned in my 4 years of undergrad!
