I decided it was time to make a new fan for myself. I had purchased a cheap fan at an antique store last year. The leaf was in shreds, but the sticks were in great condition. So, I decided it was time to make a leaf to mount on them.
This was my inspiration…
Here is my version of it. It’s not exact, but I’m happy with the results.
I went with gold for the back to add some glitz!
In other news… I have started on two projects for customers. I will do some documenting, once there is something to show. I have the mock-ups finished, but they’re really not that exciting. I am working on a full suit for my friend’s husband and a round gown and open robe for another friend. I’m very excited to see how they progress.
Also, I have had a lot of inquiries on Facebook regarding my fans and when I plan to sell them. I am still planning on selling them, just not right now. I have been super busy with sewing lately and life; all of which I am thoroughly enjoying. I’m hoping that by April things will slow down again and I can have a chance to paint some fans and get them posted for sale. So, please bear with me.
Finally, I have randomness for you….
Someone in the produce department at New Seasons has a great sense of humor. The Gru lemon, for those of you who have seen Despicable Me.
Doggie snuggles… I had a wretched migraine on Tuesday night. I ended up conking out on the couch with my fur kids. They are the best nanny nurse maids, as my mom calls them. Of course, Aaron had to take a picture. Here is further proof that I do indeed wear modern clothing in real life.
Well, I had better be off. I have my riding lesson today and I will be bareback for the first time. I’m super excited! Have a lovely day.
