This last week I got two emails with projects that people made out of Party Dress! I have always said that the most fun for me will be seeing what people make with the fabric and it is as fun to see as I imagined! Those sweet Jamma pants were sewn up by Kaitlin, whose sister is Lindsay of Hawthorne Threads. I love the photo! It is from a pattern you can find in Joel Dewberry's new book, "Sewn Spaces". Secondly, Heather of Ala Mode fame made this adorable head hankerchief. I so remember wearing those when I was younger and wonder why I don't wear them now especially out gardening with a mouth full of little hairs that fly all over? Better get on that!
Secondly, she made these hexies and I think they are about the cutest thing ever! And perfect! I should take a picture of the backs- so nicely done.
Heather and I met on the internet and live in the same city and I knew we had to meet. I have other friends from the web who live in the same state that I correspond with and think are just the coolest- Monica, for one. (Who I call the other Mo.) Mo2 and I had our first fabric collections come out at the same time so we had lots of fun going through that together. So last thursday I finally got to meet these lovely ladies in the flesh! We arranged to meet at The Old Spaghetti Factory along with some other fantastic ladies, Violet (my sewing buddy from here in town who has her own line of fabric coming out soon!) Joan, Terri, Tammy,Tracy and Jona. I think the best part about the evening is that it was so much fun and I really felt like we had all done this before! A lot of laughing and a lot of good fabric talk. After dinner we all went to the Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting and learned how to make hexagons. All in all a really fun night- I can't wait to do it again!
On an unrelated note- I am being bombarded with comments regarding counterfit purses and viagra so I turned on the word verification. Hopefully it will stem the flow of these comments. It is a pain to have to enter the word so sorry but I have had enough of these comments!
