Hard at Work

I know that I haven't posted for a while, but I have been busy sewing. Really I have! Here are a few pictures as proof.
This is a tote bag that I have been developing so I can offer it as a workshop to accompany my guild trunk shows. It has six 3-dimensional techniques that I enjoy teaching. I have a 3-D jacket in my fashion show that also incorporates many of these techniques and is another example of what you can do with these ideas.

This is my version of a tree skirt for a new pattern that Wendy is writing. The colors in my photo are bit yellowed/darkened, but this is the best I could get. Suffice it to say that those are true reds and the center and borders are more creamy than yellow. Wendy's version is a very elegant skirt in shades of cream in a variety of textures and fabrics with gold lame' triangles. It's always difficult for me to come up with something different after she's made a beautiful sample, but I enjoy the challenge :-)

The rest of what I've been working on are samples for teaching next semester so I can't show those yet. Soon, I hope!
