Time to Move Forward


Well the funk is leaving the building. I'm just tired of it, so I'm forcing myself out of retirement. The coat if finished. The two skirts have been repaired. I've been preparing for an all day beginners Felt workshop that was yesterday and I'm working on Felt Jewelry for our February Felters Guild monthly drop in. So here's the coat.

I've had the fabric for years. It's cotton with a small stripe woven into it. The collar fabric is an embroidered cotton velveteen. Button were purchased at a ribbon store in Dublin that is now out of business. I am pleased with the outcome of the coat and I'm really glad it's done.

Well done, a coat I am amazed. Although of course, I mean that in the I can't imagine being ever able to sew something like that way- I should know better of you though - just how many crafty things do you excell at? Wear well!
