Sewing Day!

I continue to work on two projects right now (more than that but I am thinking of the really active ones).  My EPP is progressing--I had stopped at the point where filler diamonds were needed, and felt a little stymied there.  Letting the project rest was the perfect idea, and I am so enthused about finishing it up.

What I had to do was to stop stressing over the colors of the diamonds, and just go with it!

My other project is a Christmas wall hanging, one of Laura Heine's collages, called The Dress.  I am using Christmas fabrics to construct the dress, and it is turning out to be a lot of fun.  

Here you see the bare bones of the bodice and face.  Laura's directions are quite clear and helpful, and since I haven't done much collage, I keep referring back to them.  I especially like the idea of the face seeming incomplete, and the focus on the dress.  

Her face will have just a little embellishment, but the hat-- I hope to have fun with the hat!

Will keep you all up-to-date.  I see some gold thread, and some crystals in my future!

Sew fun,
