I feel like I have so much to catch up on and share! Is it really already past mid-January? This Holiday Season was really fun for me! I'm feeling very grateful. December started with being the featured Artist at Bella Cosa Boutique; then there was the Holiday Bazaar at the EXPO Center. I enjoyed both events so much!
As you can see, Santa made an appearance at Bella Cosa for December's First Friday in Bixby Knolls!
Below are a couple pictures from the Holiday Bazaar. The first one is of me with Karen, of Bella Cosa, and Julie, of Vintage Emporium.
Here's Karen with some of her beautiful items.
I also received many special orders from my wonderful customers for them to give as gifts (or just gift themselves!). Emily purchased the two pillows below for her Living Room and then requested a Christmas Throw!
As you can see from the picture above, Cica (Hungarian for "cat") especially loved the Christmas Throw. The front was a beautiful fabric with green holly leaves and red berries, and the back a yummy, soft ivory chenille.
Here are aprons I made for Emily to give to some special friends of the family. They are all reversible!
A very special pillow, by request, for my Sis-in-Law, Erin, made out of the cutest Fairy Fabric with red ball fringe. This picture was taken before the pillow was actually finished and given to her, but it turned out really cute!
I went to see my precious niece, Clare, in her ballet recital. She's two -- so cute to see a class of two-year-olds on stage -- Priceless! Here's Clare with Mommy and Daddy before the Show.
Took a day off from sewing and visited "Grinchmas" at Universal Studios with Hubby. We had so much fun; he'd never been. There was a huge tree, the prettiest poinsettias, and real snow!
Hubby treated me to lots of new wonderful fabrics -- pretty much the only thing on my Christmas Wish List. I can't wait to get started creating with them! I have some exciting ideas in mind for my upcoming lines. I think one theme will be "Sky Blues and Sandy Tans"! Stay posted for more to come!
Wishing you the Best and Most Blessed New Year Ever! Happy 2011! ~Diane
