The Melinda Fingerless Double Ruffle Gloves

I'm in love with these gloves! They were so much fun to design and make. There will be lots of these in my closet this winter!

I'm linking to my favorite Monday blog partys!

Canoe Ridge Creations

A customer requested a pair of these to go with the lace leggings I offer and I loved them so much I'm offering them in the shop too!

Made from the same stretch lace as my leggings, you can have these in cream or lilac.

3/4 length, they can be scrunched down for a shorter look. The thumb opening is reinforced for stability and because it's prettier than just leaving the serger seam. (My picky Mom would be proud!)

Soft ruffle on the hand and at the top, these are wearable all year.

I I-Dye!

Don't you just love creative days that turn out fabulous?

I've always used Dylon cold water dye with great results.
So of course I had to try the new I-Dye for polyester.
I loved the color so much (violet) that I just kept putting garments and fabrics
in the pot and this is what came out!

A pair of my cream lace was difficult to capture the vividness of this color!
These are poly or nylon, I can't believe how well they took the dye. Amazing.

I grabbed a cream sweater that I've had for a year and never worn.....and I will be wearing this tonight!

Some vintage cream satin....turned out a gorgeous soft tie dyed purple (ish) color.

Did someone say Roses???

And last but not least, a silk cashmere shawl that I've cut into skinny scarves and I'm going to embellish with sequins and beads......

And I'll be keeping ALL these for MY closet!
  So this will count as my Brenda's Closet Thursday edition too!

Obviously I don't wear a lot of boring colors....♥

Mixed Media Old Store Painting

I playing hooky from sewing, still in the painting/embroidery/applique mode....

This old store is on a back road and has been there forever...

I would love to get inside it, but that hasn't happened yet!

So I have to be content with putting it onto fabric!
Still deciding on whether to add the beams out front....

Now I can start embellishing, always the fun part!
