Stitch Rock 2010 Indie Craft Fair

One of the largest Indie Craft Fairs in south Florida is this weekend in Delray. I’m so looking forward to going to Stitch Rock. Maybe next year I’ll have it together in time to get myself a booth. It’s the 4th year, but will be my first visit. Over 70 vendors and many can also be found on etsy. Follow my link for all the event info.

Latest Purse

Wow, this was more of a challenge than expected. The beige fabric on the upper part of the purse started unraveling before I finished sewing it together.  I had to hand weave it back together as it was all of the fabric that I had. Then once I finished the purse, the old recycled zipper I used got stuck and when I tried to close it, the cloth part ripped. I didn’t think I’d be able to get a new zipper in without taking the purse apart (couldn’t do that after fixing that fraying fabric). So I ended up hand sewing some Velcro in instead. Came out pretty lovely in the end & my sister-in-law really appreciated her birthday gift.

Our Handmade Wedding

Our wedding was a small family affair in our own back yard. With the help of friends and family, we made most everything for our wedding. We wrote our own vows and we created & printed our own invitations. I restored my grandmothers 1920’s wedding dress (it had major damage to the silk fabric) and my mother helped me sew the rest of the clothes for the wedding party. My sisters & sisters-in-law helped make the bouquets and decorations for the house. Most of our friends pitched in making the food for the reception. It was a lovely intimate wedding, and it sure doesn’t seem like that long ago for us to have celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary just a few weeks ago.

Off Subject

I know its unrelated to crafting, decorating and recycling, but I just created a second blog. This one is my travel blog. My husband and I just returned from an Alaskan cruise, so I decided to create a separate blog for our travel tales & photos, take a look if you're interested.
