When you hear hoof beats think Zebra
Often Doctors only think horses and when the process they use lends no results nothing else is done. IDF is trying to teach the medical profession to think outside the box. Many times those of us who have Immune disorders go undiagnosed because we are blown off when the doctors do not think outside the box.
Laying out the beads and working your design is a must. Setting everything out before you begin to string makes good practice.
Enjoy your gifts and remember that your talent can be a real resource. Often if we do not sell we discount doing art. Well there is a vestment as rich as the dollar in giving in support of a good cause.
Blankets for preemies
bags for soldgers
quilts for the child centers
Lap quilts for the elders
jewelry for fund raisers, teachers gift and such
Earrings for a friend just to cheer them up.

Several weeks ago my daughter asked specifically for this dress to be created. She loved the dress she saw it in a cartoon and loved it.
Large skirt or slack hook and eyes are on the choker and the cuffs.
Also started were two dresses for myself. The pattern on the left is just below. A scrap with the custom necklace. Below is the other dress (pattern) on the right. both dresses are fully lined, shier fabrics with slip fabric underneath as the lining.
Lining is sewn to side seams in skirts.
Hand hemmed with delicate single thread picked up on each pick up.
All of the back of my sons old quilt was removed to replace the backing.
The ironing board cover was replaced.

In our master suite we have a very ethnic Native American 1800's theme. My anniversary wedding dress is on the wall and the beautiful doll I was gifted with on my dresser.
The images above the tub are to the left my sons story to the right my daughters. The talking stick above my family in an image of listening to one another. Speaking and being heard.
It all began when two people fell in love and decided after 16 years to share that love.
Our master suite is the story...Our Story. All my memories seem to fade to black and white. The moments are rich in tones hues of vibrant golden love encompassed brighter than any color. Best left images to black and white that it be the richness of our hearts and spirit of each moment shown.
