No stopping this Sister Act, though! When the creative juices begin flowing, watch out, and watch this space.....below!
You can see some finished blocks here.
1 a.m Helena cannot stop!
A week or so ago, I wrote that my sister is visiting and I mentioned then that she came across my small selection of unique fabrics and offered to do something with them.
Well, my sister and I are still in the midst of these gorgeous beaded, sequinned and richly decorative fabrics and we're still having a wonderful time with them. There are little sparkly bits of sequins and beads all over the floor, the result of chopping them up for the One-of-a-Kind selections I am now selling in my Etsy shop. The first six packages that we made initially flew off the shelf, so we knew that not only did we love these fabrics, they were beautiful to others too. So that inspired us to continue.
This has been a labour of love because to put each selection together takes a lot of choosing, arranging, deciding which piece goes with each other, and what the story is behind the fabrics. And each selection, ultimately, feels like a piece of art just in placing the pieces together.
So here are some of our latest selections put together, on Etsy there are more photos of the fabrics.
|The precious piece of beading in the centre was the inspiration for this selection. Below the beading is pleated organza which reminds me of Jean Butler in Riverdance.|
|After Helena put this together, she called me over to look. At the same moment we both said to each other "Russian Roulette". A little telepathy here.|
|Aunt Maude is sitting primly in her stuffed parlour chair. She reached deep into her closet (at least 60 years back) for just the right outfit to greet her many guests.|
|Northern Princess started out as "Soft Spring", but somehow as we were working on it, we mislaid two pieces of fabric, and therefore we had to substitute two others. Suddenly we had the "Northern Princess".|
