This is the blouse I was working on. I will be wearing it at my brother's daughter's wedding on Friday night. I leave tomorrow to fly to Minnesota for a week.

Starting to begin getting some of the things done that I have started sometime ago. I love doing hand work, so I was happy to get busy doing this one. I have made this purse before. I enjoyed putting some old lace on, a polymer clay face, some buttons, beads, quilt stitching and I practiced embroidery stitches from Judith Baker Montano. I love her books. If you like to embroidery you should take a look at her books. She has a app that you can down load so many stitches for a price.

Finally having time to take a look at the things that I brought back from Paris. These beads were made by a Paris Artist and I liked the colors and the way she strung them. This is my version using her beads. These are colors I wear a lot so they should fit in to my wardrobe very well.

I signed up for Sandra Betzina's bias class with Craftsy on line. This is the skirt pattern she is using. I liked the blouse and decided to try it. I made up a muslin and am working on the adjustments I have to make to cut out the fabric. I like the way the skirt looks and will follow her instructions with that one soon.
