So here's what some Hip Stitchers have been up to lately:
Tracey covered this chair, found, literally, on the side of the road, with Amy Butler's laminated cotton. Now, I'm not an expert, but can't you see this at some foo-foo boutique in L.A. selling for $100?! (yes, I realize foo-foo is not a real expression)
And, my niece Jenn and I finally finished making her Amy Butler Lotus Cami. We started this together last fall, and daily life as being moms and wives and worker bees got in the way until we picked it up again, and voila:
If you look close, you can see the teeny tiny skulls on the fabric - I think it's Alexander Henry? - we carried it last fall. Jenn is such a great combination of feminine & funky - and I say that as a compliment. Pink? No. Ruffles? No. But this cami, with just a touch of gathering on the cap sleeves despite black skulls fabric? Perfect! She's also a knitter, and the buttons on the back she found at our own Village Wools.
And finally, Bralia brought in her latest quilt top:
She used a mix of Alexander Henry's 2-D Zoo, Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane, and tossed in some Michael Miller - fabulous!
Finally, for no reason - cowboy boots I've been wanting for 20 years....since moving to New Mexico. I found this great pair in Madrid, at Red Bone - where there's a great selection of used boots. NOW I feel like a real western gal!
Java Junction. It was funky, and rustic, and quaint, and a wonderful retreat!
