Keep A Lid On It!

Originally uploaded by designerdiva.
I am such a hat person. I can't wait for the leaves to start to turn and that slight chill in the air that signals Fall. I then can drag out my many hats from the closet and go on the hunt for more. Of course, I can't go without making some myself. I am a designer after all. So, I've added a couple of winter hats to the Soleil Rouge repetroire. Faux fur...of course!! I'm planning to add more hats before Jack Frost gets to town.
Just call me the Mad Hatter from now on 'til Spring!

Still in de-clutter mode.

I'm in a de-clutter mode. I took a ride down to the local Goodwill this weekend and donated a haul. Some 10 books, a tv stand, some curtains, 2 fans, etc. The attendant there asked me if the fans worked, of course! What heartless S.O.B. would donate something that didn't work? Apparently it happens. Way to help out dude, NOT! There are still lots more I need to donate/sell/purge but its a start.

Fabric Withdrawal

I am a addict... a fabric addict and I'm going through withdrawl. I haven't stepped foot into a fabric store in 2 whole months. Its a push to get me using my substantial fabric stash, some of which has traveled cross country from La-La Land, Los Angeles, California. I do have my favorites and for the life of me, I-can-not-cut. Crazy, I know. But I'm on the right path.
To start it off, I made this one of a kind dress. I bought the snazzy, retro, high heel fabric from a fellow craft diva and fabric addict.(ENABLER!) ;-) She lightened her stash and I brought it home. ha-ha!! Right now, I'm day-dreaming of going to Mood, the fabric store featured on Project Runway. I could get lost in there for days! More to come later.
