Having fun!

Since I signed up for the collage camp with KC Willis, I have been scouring my stash as well as many thrift and craft stores. My friend, Joy, and I spent last Friday going all over the East Valley. Stopped at Hobby Lobby, Michael's and Goodwill.
The background piece I found at Merchant Square just this week. Look how it fringes! Love that. And the pattern is tiny roses that are burgundy and pink. And it is soft! I think it has already been washed. The piece of black fabric is velvet that has a pattern on it. There is a name for that, but I can't think of it now (embossed velvet??). That is all I have of this velvet. Drat! It really is a pretty piece. Discovered that and the ticking in my stash. The ticking is a very small piece, too! Another drat because I love the color. And coffee stained it will be great!
Kim, Kim, Kim!!!! Thanks ever so much for this grand fan!! I absolutely love it! I hope that this weekend I will be able to scour Mesa to see if I can come across more of this good stuff! You have much better luck than I do!
The fan rests against the wire dress form on a cedar chest that my dad made when he was in high school. The dress form has a vintage lace collar, a vintage corsage (pink rose, of course!), pearls and a light pink ribbon tied in a bow. I love this! Thanks, Kim!!!

I saw the piece of fabric you found at Merchant Square, yesterday, when I visited Mystic Paper. It is perfect for your projects, just perfect!
I am really tempted to join all of you in this online adventure. I have not even done one assignment for my other online class though so I am thinking my wants are bigger than my mind! I know you will have a great time.

I'm so glad you love the fan. I could see it in your face the second I showed it to you. Enjoy!

Great fabrics for your KC workshop. I just signed up. Carlene talked me into it. Now I need to get busy collecting...
