Well, I have been working on some projects. I have had an eye for leaves lately and decided to applique some onto brown linen. Makes me think of a photo from Washington last year,when I realized that there really were pink leaves in nature! I made a journal out of the linen piece for another project that is in the works.
I have also been helping S. with a dress for the Homecoming dance.
Note the green tulle, what a lovely first project!!! Anyway, the dress was finished, and I'd love to show you a picture of her wearing it, but she couldn't seem to take a sane photo. This is as close as I could get.
At least her feet didn't hurt during the dance. She hasn't worn matching socks in years now, but I do wish the shoes had been washed!
I had the opportunity for another 'joy' moment this past weekend. I had the privilege of spending some time in a building that I have admired for years. You know those old buildings that could tell stories of ages long ago, the mystery of what those walls could say, so intriguing. A quick tour just won't work, it takes time to soak it in, that was the great part, I had time inside this old place.
While the outside is weathered a bit, the inside has been restored and is beautiful. The woodwork is all original, along with many exposed walls. The small windows on the fourth floor are all trimmed in metal and wood, as is much of the ceiling up there.
