a few years ago I was given a
portion of a sample bolt 
of the most beautiful fabric...

↠↠↠ now it is a simple fact: 
I am a fabric nut  

I love textures, colors dyes, weaves and warps and wefts 

silks, linens, satins, velvets, tweeds, denim, corduroy, flannel.. 
the list can go on and on..

the fabric was date stamped 1975 "Craftex Mills - The Quality Weave of Pennsylvania”. It is gorgeous ~ like you'd want a chair out of it. I only have small pieces .. I love that I can make something beautiful that brings this fabulous fabric back to life!!

This colorful beauty is 

I still recall the place
When I first felt your gypsy wind playin' on my face
That summer's long since gone
But gypsy winds have ways of staying on

just the right size to stash your treasures
use as an adorable make-up bag

beautiful enough to slip you lip stick & power
 into for a night on the town with your honey

today is the Winter Solstice
the shortest day of the year in the 
Northern Hemisphere 
days will start getting longer now
2017 is on her way out
I hope you all have had a wonderful year
