the thread portions of my gypsiness...

it has come to my attention that my talents need face time.
after all, this IS "threads of a gypsy," isn't it?
my previous posts gave you a peek into my crazy, now i would like to give you a peek into my therapy.
my little niece was the angel wearing this.  it was her First Communion, and since i couldn't be there, i just HAD to be a part of her celebration somehow.
my other gorgeous niece is the owner of this vintage inspired gem.  i couldn't be there for her prom, so this was my contribution.
1952 Butterick pattern fashioned out of lipstick red silk dupioni.
the fittings were fun, we were on video chat.

 i have this fetish for imported Japanese print fabric, too.
considering my kids are no longer of the age where they would even CONSIDER wearing such lovely smocks, i'm stuck with them.
but aren't they cute???

 and so much more...
much, much more fills my baskets.
i gave up my stash of fabrics moving to this god-forsaken new state, but i have since grown a new one.
anyone else out there have an uncontrollable urge to collect fabrics just to look at?  or any other crafty item?
