More Spring Romance

Bonjour my friends! Behind the scenes I have been working quite a bit in my sewing lab :) Mixing tea and rit dyes, soaking up all the lace and gauze for these sweet fun custom pieces. I just love how everything looks after a good soak in tea, then the dryer with lavender dryer sheets , when the fabric and lace come out its like they aged 50 years or more! My little Time machine :) All three of these items were a custom order for one sweet lady, now I have one more bag to finish this week for my sweet friend Sandy. Her bag is turning out soooo lovely , I saved some special lace for it. I will be sure to give you all a sneek peek after she sees it. The hat is so special, in person it's just ahhhh.... the last piece is a wrap, I call it the Parisian Gypsy , another piece that came out of the time machine:) Well, besides being sick from the pollen , any allergy sufferers out there? It was never a problem in my younger days but ever since I hit 40 a few years back I have inherited all these weird ailments ! Oh well, til next time, thanks again for all the sweet comments I love to hear from you all!! Hugs, Kimberly


  1. After seeing all these custom things you had made for this lady, I can't wait, my gosh Kimberly this stuff is awesome... everything is absolutely beautiful. I looooove her hang bag, so I can't even imagine what mine is going to look like. I really need to calm down I am so excited. I don't think I have ever seen a hat so romantic as this one... and the shaw wrap is so dreamy. I bet this special lady is going to be in awe and so well pleased with your work. I know my heart is going to leap when I get MY package.

    Thanks sweet Kimberly - your the best my friend!
