Ali & Mandie:
Claire, putting the finishing touches on a wallet she made:
Norah, who with her mom, Debra, were making a mock-up of a dress. Norah did the "Re-create it" class (pt. 1) with Sharon, and made a pattern from a favorite knit dress. Tonight, they cut up t-shirts to make the 1st draft of the dress.....how creative is that?!
Carrie, trying to finish up Roman shades for her almost-here baby boy! She's had lots of early labor, so she's thinking it'll be next week - a new baby in the Hip Stitch community! (which means that when she brings him into the store, she'll get a brief hello from me and then I'll make a beeline to the baby to oooh and aaah over him.....and his adorable big sister!)
Last Sunday, my family and I went to our favorite museum - the International Folk Art in Santa Fe. I was encouraged to take pictures (no flash, of course), so of course I had to capture:
some things from THIS exhibit:
These were quilts made by survivors/victims of the floods in Pakistan, which, to bring a tragedy across the world closer, caused the cost of cotton to go up.....now reflected in fabric stores here!
This is all HAND SEWN!
This is a photo from our very favorite permanent exhibit - the room of miniatures:
And finally, a few random shots of summer:
Fresh fruit and yogurt - what could be better in the morning??
A book to read while floating in the backyard pool:
