Love began at the gallery...

Texas chicks gathered
to love on this Colorado babe,

KC Willis
She walked us through her pieces
and I bought this one.
Love the shades of pinks
and the quote spoke to me...
"If I was a lady...nobody would
remember me. Can't have that."

From the gallery to our
home for the weekend...
On the porch of Clark Mansion
love this keyhole window.

Itchin' to dig in and make
my own KC inspired
have always loved this gypsy girl
and her melancholy gaze
and I also love
layers of texture
loved this machine
and it won't be long before

I have my own
layer upon layer of delicious fabric
ripped, burned, stitched
What if she...what if I could fly?
I can...I did...
and I'm hooked on collage...

I'm in love!


F.Y.I. there are two openings for this coming weekend. It's NOT to late to go...two thumbs up!

Oh Candy Sweetie...
This looks like so much fun. I love seeing the layers and if you have any tutorials that you would be willing to share (sizes and yardages) I would love to give it a whirl. I also notice you metioned burning edges, how did you do that as well?

I would love to make a couple. The layering looks fun. Thank you for sharing with me. You look fabulous. Love that key-hole window as well.

Have a glorious Monday sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
