New Photo Shoot

Hello friends...last weekend when I was in New York I took the opportunity to get a few of my new creations photographed. Whatever does not sell at the Home Show will be placed in my Etsy shop. I'll share a few photos with you...
Creamy wool fingerless gloves with soft fleece rosettes.
Super soft polar fleece cowl and glove set..zebra with pink rik-rak.
Really cute puppy print in polar fleece and ruffles.
Vibrant lime green with ruffles and little terriers. These cowls are so easy to just pull over your head and long scarf tail to deal with. 
This was the first time I had seen these on a real person. I think they look great and Kelly said they were very warm. 
I started to play around with stretch denim and I really like the results. Very youthful and pretty easy to sew with.
 These are black stretch denim with antique lace trim and vintage buttons. A little Goth meets Queen Victoria.
Cloud soft pumpkin cashmere and vintage buttons.
Of course I will have over one hundred different zipper pouches to choose from. This one was created using an antique table runner I found while on my trip to Amish country.
So that is just a tiny sampling of all the fun items that will be for sale at my open house. I have sooooo much more! I hope I did not bore you  ;-)
Until next kind and stay creative.
'The Girl Back Home'
'Banana Republic Rebirth'
Oooops...I forgot to tell you, last weekend I got 2 e-mails informing me that I am to be featured in the newest annual edition of 'Apron*ology' magazine and one of my children's felted sweaters will be featured in 'Altered Couture' magazine.  I have been smiling for days!

Oh Janet - I am so proud of you. I've never called a celebrity a friend before. (Hey, does that make me a celebrity too? You know the friend of a friend of a friend. . . Never mind, I already know the answer.)

Hugs - Marie

Wow Janet, busy doesn't come close to describing you...........
Love the idea of the cowls they look so warm and snuggly with their matching fingerless gloves. Beautiful photos and Kelly did a great job modelling them. Rich spied the photos and asked me to make sure I was really, really good friends with you.... He was a bit disappointed when I said you were State side.
Big congrats on being featured in Apronology and Altered Couture.
When will your own book be coming out?
Pouring with rain here, doesn't bode well for an outdoor market tomorrow....Ah Spring, I love you.
