A New Week, A New Skirt


I have an obsession... okay, let's be honest I have a few - buttons, ric rac, 3D quilts ....   And we won't even go near the ones with food=)

Remember I said I was making a couple of skirts for some upcoming travelling I have to do this spring/fall?   I couldn't help myself, I had to make another one.    Seriously, I really don't know why more people aren't using their funky cottons and making wearable art.

You know how modern quilting is the 'in' quilting right now?  Well, I am trying to keep up and thought if I am going to make modern quilts, why not wear the 'modern quilt'?  I had some fun modern fabric and used it to turn into a skirt.   What do you think?
I know, it needs to be ironed... and I couldn't model it because my legs are as white as the fabric, and that is just not a pretty sight=)

Here are the two I made last week.


And tell me how fun of a gift this was to open?  Only if you love embellishing.   And I got two containers of vintage buttons... some are over 80 years old!

I am playing with some new blocks and will show them to you tomorrow.  Stay tuned=)

Very cute skirts, easy to make, easy to wear. I'm sure you'll get a few comments when you wear them.

Very cute skirts. I love old buttons. I have a box full from my grandmother. Always fun to "paw" through.

Love your skirts. I wish I could wear skirts. They look so bad on me. My legs suck. I want to see these on you!

Love your buttons. How cool!
