Buttons and Tweed

This painting I just finished last week and gifted it to my wonderfully talented daughter.  She launched her handmade specialty bag business in 2013 called Buttons and Tweed.  The bag business along with everything else happening in her life; moving closer to us (which we love!), she started a new position in her career and just purchased a new condo!  The painting is for her home studio.  We are so very proud of all she has accomplished in the last nine months.copy tweed        Please visit her Buttons and Tweed blog and her facebook as well.  Her bags are presently represented in a local gallery as well as her nearly ready to go Etsy Shop.  Can you tell I’m pleased with it all…love her!

Prep Day in the Studio

Preparation for my upcoming workshop on Saturday.  Seven students have signed up which pleases me as eight was my limit.  The sweet little grey pencil bag is a recent gift from my daughter.  She is tweaking her sewing skills!  Hoping there will be more surprises ahead as she practices new bag designs!

Will post some pictures of my workshop soon.  I’ve worked and have not had much time in the last several days in the studio so Saturday’s workshop will bring some fun, creative spirit to my world.

Spread your wings.  Allow your creative spirit to soar.
