Inspirations abound for me.
1860-1940’s fascinate me. The history of the lives of my genealogy lines and what they wore and what they did…oh, just scrum-dilly-um-shish for me and my creativity.
Lady Iris Jean and her family were from an Era only in memory now.
The sewing manuals From my grandmothers with chapters on trousseau preparation, fine linens for a well to do home, fabric choices and care etc…Ohhh to be off this thing and sewing!
Grandmother Viola's Sewing book
I still think I’m Martha Pullens long lost daughter. Like on a soap, whisked away and she never knew about me. Someday I MIGHT be able to afford her reproduction of her family sewing and heirlooms book. For now it’s still up in the $98 range USED…. New you can forget about it.
So I will just go with my passions and design away. Check out some of my posts on the old ways and designing as well as my battle with techNO nightmares. This AM before the sun came up, Rosetta stone kicked me off their live tutor session when my mic driver decided to take that opportunity to totally disappear!
Un daunted I proceed …
Blammo, well not blammo ….more like… the sound of screeching breaks at 3 am with an adolescent at the wheel,right before it hit’s a telephone pole and power to the entire subdivision goes out… BUT …
Layers of lace!
I am posting new items in the store through the rest of the day. That’s right folks it’s a head on assault on this key board today. The words NO! are heard frequently (along with a barrage of comments about FiFi’s mother) from my little office. I never talk like this while I’m sewing!
I’m in the zone, Zen like. Time passes, literal hours and I look up and hubby is standing there grinning ready for supper. But I think I’ve put this off long enough. They really are breathtakingly beautiful.
So out of my safe hermitage, life awaits!
Uploaded the pics,went over soundness of construction like 20 times, sized them,check… Now to Package them and weigh the wee packages, … then onto descriptions, print off the books and then that long sot after “GO” button. Fb may or may not get done…I swear I’ve authorized that darn thing twice and it just asked me to do it AGAIN. Oh-NO Mr Bill comes to mind.(Any other old-timers out there or am I the only one here who FULLY understands what that sounds like?)
We ARE getting there! Hang on for the ride, I hope to miss the telephone pole !
Post script: Why can’t I post to the Fb store site? It says I can only post it on the Artist Logo site? telephone poll number one….
