A New Fan and Other Random Goodness…

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.

Beautiful fan! I made one a few months ago. You can see it here:

But it isn't near as nice as yours!

That last picture is one of my favourite activities in the world. :) Dog snuggles are hte only cure for migraines. :)

Have fun at your riding lesson! This summer, we are going on a group trip to camp at the coast with the horses so we can ride on the beach. Wouldn't that be fun!!?

Love the fan! They are so gorgeous!

You poor thing having a migraine :-( I hope you don't get another one soon. At least you have gorgeous doggies to snuggle with you!

Oh my goodness, those fans are gorgeous! What a fun time in your life you are having (except for the migraine that is)! I hope you feel better soon!
