    What I do for fun...

    After all the year of hussle & bussle of the craftshow season & trips & life in general, this is what I spent part of the month of Dec. doing. This is my way of unwinding & relaxing. Had to start doing the serious sewing & quilting for the craft booth in Jan., but Dec. was fun. I don't make the clothes, I just decorate them! The 1st horse shirt was taken from a kid's coloring book & I used fabrics that felt like petting them textures. Most of anything I applique is fur, upholstry fabrics, fleece, whatever has textures. WARNING: there are lots of pics (fronts & backs) Gotta look good coming & going! Please enjoy the show...

    Very nice shirts. We do have to relax sewing at times or it isn't enjoyable all the time.

    Cute, you can find fabric in just about anyone's interests to do a shirt for them.

    I just let my imagination go...I look at the stash & say, "I think I'll do this or that" & go with that. I just enjoy doing the decorating. Have to just have fun sometimes.
