My Muse...

If you're looking for a little escape from the rain and drizzle, click this link about Celia Birtwell, a lovely designer who created beautiful garments. I have decided to create some new sketches and designs inspired by Ms. Birtwell, for my first children's collection. Enjoy the sounds of the birds while you view these wonderful pieces. Close your eyes and disappear into spring and your own secret place.

Silk Fabric from LONDON has arrived!

I'm so excited that this lovely fabric has just arrived from London. I paid way too much for it, I forgot that you need to double the UK price, to get the proper price in US dollars...Oh well!
This fabric will be added to the linings of my new designs!
I will show you the design as soon as I finish knitting the rest of it!

Finally went to the movies!

I know that it's not such a big deal to some but I can count how many times I have actually gone to the movies this year! I guess I lead a boring...well mostly a life filled with too much work and not enough fun, LIFE. I went to see Julie/ Julia and loved it. Light, charming and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
I have quite a busy day tomorrow at work, not looking forward to it...I'm looking forward to completing a few new designs and I have dreamed up a lovely delicious to share right now, kind of like the Brie I just bought at Whole Foods today, totally inspired by the movie! I covered it with raspberries and honey drizzled on top, quite decadent for a little snack, but we must take good care of ourselves every now and then!

My Daughter's Big Night!

My lovely daughter Elise, will have her first art show tomorrow evening at The Silver Circle Studio, in Putnam, CT. I'm so proud of her! She will have seven pieces in the show. Her style is a reflection of her love of fashion, music and design. She dreams to be a textile designer some day!
