My list gets bigger every year of all the things to bring. Machines alone, I’m bringing 3 different ones! I have so much to share with my students. You MUST come next year. Check out Artistic Alchemy Retreat here. We are going to have a great time. It is held at Lake Tahoe, Zephyr Point Conference Center (look them up here).This year, our 6th annual retreat, runs from September 2nd- 6th.
Terrific Tabard – It’s a blank canvas. Quilted, unquilted, silks, Kantha cloth, all one piece, oodles of pieces (collage style), so many ideas…..
The pattern fits so many sizes. It’s only $15.00 plus shipping. See all my patterns at my Etsy shop, DesignsbyHeidiEmmett/ sewing patterns.
Zephyr Jacket, Whisper Blouse, Calypso, so colorful.
Calypso vest, Mommy & Me & My Quilted Vests, and Whisper Blouse, all fun patterns that are available via Heidi Emmett at: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my Etsy shop: Look for DesignsbyHeidiEmmett/ sewing patterns.
I put samples of some of my patterns out on our back deck. I liked the look so much that I took pictures just for fun.
The back of a Sparky Top (love, love wearing this one, I feel like I’m floating) with that center back panel from a Maxi Dress. The dress was made from silk chiffon. See the back of a Whisper Blouse, and there is a Zephyr Jacket (doing what it should, blowing in the breeze).
In the background is my Simply Super Vest from my book Fashion Quilted Accessories. And then in front is a Zephyr Jacket in which I went a little over the top with my “duding it up.” But , hey, we gotta have fun right?
While out on the deck hanging up all my samples, I stopped and admired my beautiful Geranium. The biggest most prolific I’d grown in a while. The picture does NOT do it justice. I’m sure glad I took this picture because the very next day, all but 4 blossom clusters were chewed off by a deer! Grrrr…..
Some great summer reading. I love this book. Read the chapter on the “Safety Pin.”
Here is another good read. All about how today’s palette of color came about. The chapter on Indigo was an eye opener for me.
I can’t believe that the deer missed my miniature roses! Right next to the chomped on geranium.
This is a close up of one of my miniature roses. Isn’t she a beauty? Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Heidi P.S. Don’t miss the funny pics below.
This is SO ME!!! My husband ALWAYS diverts my attention away from these side of the road items.
A friend sent me this. Yep, this is me. It’s all about the THRILL OF THE HUNT!!
