Tribal, elegant, and sumptuous! Mmmm, violet and gold...

Too bad about Fiberarts. Maybe something better is waiting down the pike.

that type of fabric has heavy pigment layers and i know it is hard to get the needle through. such a bummer when hand sewing. sorry about fiberarts, it is a great publication, i guess there is a lot of competition....

love the fabric, can't wait to see the finished creation. know what you mean about having a million posts in your head - i compose posts throughout the day then often have to cordon off a meager 15 minutes or so to actually type and send. am taking a deep breath and changing that, though. going to check out ecosalon right now. always enjoy stopping by here.

Can't wait to see those wearable art pieces--the fabric looks gorgeous and the colourway sounds stunning!!!!!!
