In the Land of Fabric

I have been living in that land for the past three months and now I think I am ready to get back to reality. It has been very busy but I have learned so much and am working on changing my attitude about working. I feel so blessed to be able to work out of my home so that I can still be with my kids. I have the opportunity to work with so many talented people and feel it an honor to be associated with them. I have also gained some confidence the last few months once I have seen my creations (not my designs, I give credit to Firefly for that) take shape and finally displayed in a customers home. It is amazing what a change in attitude can do. So to start with, here is a cute little custom tee I did for Papertreats.

In September I started on the Neilson project. What a job. I did 4 Hobbled Roman shades, 3 sets of panels, and 2 sets of table linens.

Unfortunately this is the only picture I got before my batteries went dead. I then started on the Fisher Residence.

This started in the Master Bedroom with a duvet cover, throw, two Euro shams, 2 standard shams, 1 bolster, and four throw pillows.

To accent the window we did a full drapery treatment that started with a fabric covered cornice, sheers, and lined and interlined drapery panels.

Man those were heavy. After that we moved into the living room.

The bay window is accented by pencil pleat draperies and a box pleat valance. The Guest bedroom had 2 Euro shams, 1 bolster, and 1 throw pillow.

I then did a set of Triple pinch pleat draperies on a decorative traverse rod.

Wow, what a mouth-full. Needless to say it was a busy few months and it has been so nice to concentrate on things at home and less complicated projects.
