Today someone shared on Facebook the most stunning blog and wedding tricia designed. A mix of magical faeries and steampunk. The bride made her dress, all elements for wedding were hand crafted. The steampunk touches, the wedding guests in costume as well. Be inspired by the beauty and the magic!

The magic of the faeries brought me to looking through my photos, here is the cake top "Belle" my daughter created in Pastry Arts and below my own belle, my daughter Kate, the loveliest of gowns in a wooded glen on prom night. Ah magic and memories!

Red is the color of the season and red flatters everyone, a red dress makes a wow statement! This dress by designer Ray Harris  is absolutely stunning, it is "pinned" to My Style Pinboard on Pinterest. His "garments are born out of a love of cloth and dressing people."

I love this red dress, I imagine feeling like a princess in it, spinning and twirling around.

This weekend I taught a kid's workshop and they made gifts, filled elfin stockings for all their brothers and sisters. The curly toed stockings were sewn, cut out and decorated. (The sparkly pompoms were very popular!) The fun part was watching them create different designs on each stocking. We listened to the classic Muppet's CD and sang along. With my girls grown and on their own sewing and crafting with my "kids" every month is such fun. I look forward to it as much as they do!  

There was lots of discussion on how to sneak the stockings downstairs as a surprise Christmas morning without anyone knowing. We came up with a plan but's a secret so I can't tell!

Happy Holiday Sewing, I still have a couple gifts to fnish sewing up!
