pretty little dress

One more week of holidays, glad to say that Irene missed us here in Florida, we got one rainy and very windy day and that was it.

Lola and I went shopping..oooooh fun!!

So, I found some cute fabric..well actually Lola did and she really wanted a dress made with it

This is a really simple pillow case style dress, I lined it in lime kona so its nice and sturdy-not see through.

I'm gonna add some pockets I think

Here it is and Lola in all her glory...LOL

looking forward fall...

Had a great weekend...relatively productive

I made some jewellery, finished a few Bag orders, bought some new patterns....

watched TRUE BLOOD


anyhoo...here is one of the headbands I made

I used these delicious lucite beads that are leaves and flowers...I loved the Autumnal tones. Fall is my favorite season!

I think it pairs nicely with the antique filigree base.

These bands are amazinly light and very comfy- no pinching!!
