Tiny Torso Pin Cushion
This little pin cushion is my original design. I started by creating a pattern for a six inch dress form. Then I started to embellish her and soon I was certain about the evening dress. She is made using silk ribbon and silk perle from www.hand-dyedfibers.com. There is also some beading with Mill Hill Frosted Glass beads. The skirt is chiffon and uses sulky thread. I am in the process of making a pattern available for this item and will describe the materials and stitches more fully at that time.

Stockings for Friends
CQ Stocking Ornaments:
These were made for a swap. The original pattern for the stocking came from Mary Graham. and then I started to fiddle with it until it was more suitable for embellishing.

Red, White and Blue for the Bride
These photos are from a surprise bridal shower for my friend Jennifer. This bride to be is an AVID Rochester Americans fan (hence the red, white and blue theme)! She wanted lots of bright color near her face, because she is worried that she will look washed out with all of that white! Hopefully I will have some photos from the real wedding sometime after August 25, 2001!
