Things are very busy in my studio these days with multiple projects going on at the same time. Some days it is really difficult to keep up with everything going on, including my blog posts. I have so many things I want to share with you, especially some of the things being made in the studio for the holidays and all the special gifts for my granddaughters, family and friends. The projects are piling up fast and so is all the fabric and notions, a gal could get lost for days in there. My quiet work space is starting to rival Santa’s workshop and has become a super studio.
I know I promised more bling projects and I have several in the works, but I had to put them aside to work on multiple birthday gifts for my oldest granddaughter’s 5Th birthday, which happens in just a couple of weeks. I have been working on a pretty blue fairy wall hanging which I blinged out (don’t know if is a real word but it is in my studio) and a very cute purple coat to help keep her warm all winter. Not to mention cutting out dozens of Christmas stockings, which I am making to donate to charity. You will see that project in a future post. For now, I thought I would share a photo or two of the fairy wall hanging and the coat in progress, just so you know what I have been up to and why my new posting was so late.
My granddaughter loves blue and has a thing for flower fairies. She is just like her Grammie; bling is her thing, so we add it to all her wall hangings.
I added lots of rhinestones and some butterflies to give dimension and sparkle. She is going to love this hanging over her bed.
This was the pre-cutting stage of her coat; I used deep purple fleece and a really cute pattern from McCall’s.
Honey is inspecting my pattern layout; she always inspects all my projects even if they don’t need it, wouldn’t want to get into trouble with the pattern police. Good job Honey, keep up the good work.
These are the pockets with the flowers and buttons I chose to brighten up the dark purple. We are going to have a tough time getting her to take it off at bedtime. I have almost completed her coat, I should be done in a day or so as planned, just in time for the cold, wet weather.
I really wanted to give you a sneak peak at the Christmas stockings I am making but realized at the last moment I haven’t downloaded those photos yet, darn it. I guess you will just have to wait to see the full posting of the stockings and the elegant bling projects I am working on. Thanks for letting me share my current studio projects with you. See you soon.
If you like bling, you might want to look at past posts; see the list on the right hand side of the blog under the month of October.
