Wow, did I score some beautiful stuff! I borrowerd my father's garmin and headed south east to a couple great shops. It was a beautiful day - with an "over the river and through the woods" kind of a drive. Country roads for miles, Amish areas and REALLY old houses to admire & dream about. I have a couple classes coming up and needed to get some special bits for them. Christine Shively and Barbara Willis are coming up for classes this fall. Two of my favorite designers. I won't use all this on the dolls- but will use some - the trims, silks and hand dyed silk velvets were great - awesome threads to embroider with too. Then found hand dyed wools and some great cotton fabrics with words on them. OMG - I LOVE fabric with writing and words - one of them is even in french! Not sure what I will do with it all - but I jut HAD to have it!!! I want to do something different in my living room - robin egg blues, light aqua taupe grey and brown. It seems mellow to me and I need a change. So maybe pillow covers & oh- a doll or something! Not enough time to make everything in my head- you know what I mean? Hopefully this winter when work slows down, I can work on more art. That's the game plan, anyawy.
