Because Weddings. Still.

I don’t stalk the wedding world like I used to. I suppose I should feel some sense of abandonment. Have I let myself down or just run out of material? Or, is this like so many other things I do – try, total emersion, obsession, and then, um….what’s next?


But something I haven’t stopped doing is working on bridal goodies. It’s slow going at times, because the J.O.B. gets in the way, but I’ve been making room for it lately.

Wanna see?


I’m not even sure what this is going to be, but it’s going to be awesome. I mean, I kind of know what it’s going to be. Think floral crown. Think hand-sewn everything.


Then there’s this. I’ve been sitting on this applique for years. I have a lot of beautiful pieces that take a while to become things. This is one of those pieces – and holy shit it’s going to be amazeballs. Can I still say amazeballs? It’s going to go with this:


It doesn’t look like much, but it’s silk tulle. I got a bunch of it and it’s going to be a holy-gorgeousness-drapey-fabulosity.

I recently finished a few things too:


Vintage lace trim on a dotted Swiss mesh – WHAT? It totally happened.


Vintage crocheted gloves with hand-crocheted flowers (thanks to T30SB’s crocheting-fool mamma) and vintage pearl beads. They are totally awesome.

I heard on the radio that to be creative, you have to practice. The radio host said that practice doesn’t have to be a big chunk of time. It could be 15 minutes, but it has to be every day. I’m not as obsessed with that rule as I was with Bikram yoga, but I’m working on it.

Beautiful floral creation. Very creative!

I can't wait to see what else I can contribute after a lace knitting class at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC where I took a lace knitting class. The internationally known instructor focused mainly on Ouremberg (Russia) style lace knitting. I bought a large skein of 100% silk thread from her -- who knows what that will become, and where it might appear in TSB's work....

I think you make beautiful things, and you are very informational. Bu,t must you swear so much, and so openly?
