Sew Loved

Shown here is one of the ATCs I created as part of a series. The initial design was sketched on a journal page, which can be viewed in a recent post.

In order to add more color, I stitched two bright red border-lines. That color is picked up by the Love label. I also stitched a perpendicular blue line to pick up the blue from the dress form on the left.

Bluewater Avalon

It seems I'm VERY slow to update this blog.This picture is from October 30 of last year, when D and I went to Catalina. He had childhood memories and wanted to stay there in a place overlooking the harbor.
  We had eaten at this location on a prior trip, but the food is much better now that Bluewater has taken it over. I loved going at this time of year, for a change--our view of the restaurant was of the lights from the houses on the side of the hill. The next day, we had lunch here, outside, overlooking the water.
  One highlight of this trip was watching the childrens' Halloween costume parade. Even the dogs had costumes, with lobsters being their favorite theme.

ATC - Dress Forms

I'm really behind on posting! I'll plan to add some more scans over the next few days. On this hastily-done journal page, I was playing around, designing my next ATC--I'll make a batch this week. I plan to add a small contrasting element and I'll update this picture when I do.
