This past week I was on a mini vacation sight seeing around town with a friend that was visiting. We strolled downtown, spent days on the beach and had meals seaside. I had a wonderful time! In between all the sight seeing I found time to cut out a few new items and they are waiting in my studio to be transformed into purses and clutches. The two beautiful prints on the right are from Iman's collection of textiles and the Ikat on the left was hand-woven in India and is just gorgeous in different tones of blue. Also, a shipment of lovely faux suede arrived in chestnut brown, mustard yellow, deep ocean blue, fuchsia, taupe and lemon butter that I can not wait to start working with. All this activity had Anni quite tired so she decided to spend most of her time napping. Full production in the studio is about to begin so I might have to wake up my little assistant. Usually some thread dangling from a spool does the trick.
