Happy Weekending!

It's the weekend, yay! Although I'm all work and no play at the moment, I'm loving every minute of it. I'm working away on my last project (the felt dress) and it's coming along nicely. I'm just working on sewing all the pearls on the dress...all this hand sewing is making me very happy. What's better then sitting in bed, watching movies and sewing? Not much I think.

There is still lots to do before I fly for a visit home for Christmas on Wednesday but the vacay is in sight (and so is rest and a whole lot of doing nothing--well maybe reading).

Happy weekend dear readers. Thanks for visiting.

We're getting close...

I only have a week and a half left of school before Christmas break! This year I am going home to Ontario for 3 weeks. I am so looking forward to it.

But before that there is much to finish at school. The most exciting thing I'm working on right now is a dress, made of nuno felt, print screened, machine embroidered, shibori and hand stitched pearls, all in a gradation of black to white. Here are some pics of me making the nuno felt for the dress.

I also just finished a project in weaving where the whole thing is woven using the warp threads as weft. It's pretty cool I have to say. I also ombred the warp (dyed it a gradation of black to white-see pic below for weaving action).

K, It's Sunday. I'm recovering from a lovely day thrift shopping yesterday--it was great, lots of great deals!
