More Darling Dresses


Please do yourselves a favor and go see Heather's Jeweled Elegance blog. Just start scrolling down her blog and look at the amazing little paper dresses that I was telling you about in my previous blog entry! I told Heather I was going to pirate a couple of her pictures just to get you motivated!!

These darling little ones are Heather's own designs. Don't you just love her spiderweb dress!? The dresses at the top of this entry are from her friend in a "swap." Look closely for the Halloweenish one on the right!

Any of you interested in joining me in a Dress Swap? I thought it might be fun to do one as a sort of Journaling RR. We would each get an artists' sketch book, create a personal theme for our dress "closet" or a "stage" or "setting" just as we do for our "neighborhoods," and then we would send the Journal around just as we do our stitching pieces.

Each member would then create a dress entry and whatever else they want to add to the Journal, and send it on to the next person in the RR, until it comes home to the original owner.

If you have any interest, please let me know.

One of the rules would be that we use paper for the original form of the dress, and then embellish it in any way we like using threads, ribbons, beads, pearls, fibers, textiles, lace, bones, ink, whatever we like!!

I don't really know how to start RRs or how to set up a site for them, but I'm willing to help organize and moderate if somebody is also interested in this. I was thinking of starting in January....but gathering people interested now.

Just couldn't resist ending with a needlepoint canvas of "you know who!" :)

Hugs, and happy stitching this weekend!

I'll join in with you as long as it isn't a huge RR, as thats often when things go missing. But if you email me Debs I would love to play with paper dresses!
