Summer is definately in the air...

And this Sister is feeling it....
Today we turned the air conditioning on- now I know you folks in the warmer climates don't think that's a big deal, but here in northern Minnesota, it is! I'm happily buying up my bedding plants- need to get them planted now that the danger of frost has passed. You heard me- we can still get frost until the first of June. I'm not kidding! This is my latest project- Sister Mary Julia. "Jumpin' Julia" as the kids call her. Well, not to her face....creating all the folds and flip to her garments was fun! I just love how she turned out. Hope you do too!

Memorial Weekend

I hope everyone is enjoying a little time off this weekend- it's a work weekend here, unfortunately. With my husband's occupation, there's plenty of 'work weekends'. About commission work, I've contacted everyone who has asked about this- and given you a number. I've heard back from about half of you- and will wait a week or so to see if the rest reply. Email addresses get old and outdated....

In the meantime, here is another commission I recently completed!

Have a safe, relaxing weekend- and lets not forget all our brave soldiers in this war and wars of the past...where would we be without them?

...and my reason for being here.

(...well, one of them anyway!)
Hello again!
Still getting a feel for this new means of staying in touch. I wanted to let those of you affected by this know that I intend to use this more immediate means of communication to keep you updated on my progress on commissions. Many have requested commissions in the past, and to say I am slow is an understatement.
I have vowed to myself to effectively address this in the coming months. Several unavoidable personal events factored in in 2006, but I am happy to say I have made some good progress in my efforts in 2007. I hope it continues.
My plan is to assign a number to the commission requests- and post here what 'number' I am currently working on, so you'll know when it's YOU! And, by doing it this way, it protects your privacy as well. I hope you'll enjoy this- I think I will too! Above you'll see a commission I just completed....
Feel free to comment or write me with suggestions. Thanks!

Today is the day...

This is my first post to my brand new blog! Thanks to the help of my good friend, Amelia, I am learning this wonderful new method of staying in touch with you!
To the left you will see Cameron, my newest creation. I hope you can take a peek at her on ebay.
Thanks to all who have written such wonderful comments.
I'll be back soon to share more thoughts and inspirations...
Hugs, Deb
