Sorry. I seriously just got tired and dumped all of my Quilt Market pics into flickr (see them here).
I've been sewing a lot and the fun part is that lot's of it has been fun sewing (as opposed to business sewing which is tedious but having money is fun so there's that....). Last month we got to escape the Arizona heat by driving to California for the wedding of the middle son of our best friends ever. I was so happy to make the bow ties for the groom and his guys and a necktie for the grooms dad (who officiated the wedding and was the best man at our wedding nearly 27 years ago). Don't they look great? I used my bow tie pattern and this tutoral designed by Georgia Solorzano at Puking Pastilles. It a great pattern and I highly recommend it. The fabric is a poly/taffeta type and it was great to sew with and I loved the finished look. I'm so used to working with quilting cottons that I wasn't sure how this fabric would work. It worked great it turns out!
The beautiful bride wanted a tulle garter which I'd never even heard of (kids these days!). The one she really liked was 92.00 (yeah really) so I went to work trying to recreate the look and it was truly fun. I searched high and low for the lace embellishment and found something sort of similar. I dyed it with a combination of tea and grey dye from Dharma Trading Co. and got this great taupe color. Then I trimmed it down to a reasonable size and added some little beads for a touch of bling.
