For years I have wanted a decorative dressform. I don't know what it is about them but they always inspire me to sew. Even though I don't make clothes unless it is for a canine. I see a dressform..and I want to make a pillow!
Well a month or so ago Chantel and I were at Goodwill and Chantel found one. It is perfect! It is really heavy, the stand is like iron or something. The fabric is french and neutral--so perfect! It is in perfect condition.
The only problem she had was she had a black stand..which looked fine but a little too black for my craft area.
A little paint and accessories and she is perfect!
I named her Felicity which is a French name meaning great happiness. I can tell you I did a happy dance when I found her at Goodwill.
I am just tickled to have her.
It has been a beautiful Fall so far. Yesterday was 78 degrees. Not the norm for Oregon in Fall but I am loving it. It is great painting weather!
Chantel went to her first homecoming dance. She looked beautiful. I can't believe how she is growing up!
The homecoming theme was old Hollywood. when I picked her up at the end of the dance she and her friends were limping out--dancing all night in heels took its toll on their feet. They had fun though!
This sunny weather have kept my baskets looking good.
I still have the occasional rose to bring in the house too!
The sun coming in the house looks so pretty.
I am off to finish painting my dining room chairs...but I have this terrible urge to make a pillow! :)
Thanks for visiting!
