Christmas Decoration


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !
"LOVE is the medicine of all moral evil. By it the world is to be cured of sin. Love is the wine of existence. When you have taken that, you have taken the most precious drop that there is in the cluster. Love is the seraph, and faith and hope are but the wings by which it flies. The nature of the highest love is to be exquisitely sensitive to the act of forcing itself unbidden and unwelcomed upon another. The finer, the stronger, the higher love is, the more it is conditioned upon reciprocation. No man can afford to invest his being in anything lower than faith, hope, love- these three, the greatest of which is love." ~Henry Ward Beecher~

"Whatsoever things are tru, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are  of good report...think on these things."~Philippians:4-8.

~Wishing you all the happiness in the world this Christmas season~

Prom Dress Alteration

What to do with a formal dress after using it for a one time special occasion? I found this prom dress in a thrift store for $6. I love the soft pink color, and it made me think about the movie Sound of Music--Liesl dancing in the gazebo. I wanted to use the dress in an informal way. I don't want to wait for a special occasion to wear this dress.

I made some alterations to the silk dress. I pleated the skirt and removed the silk band attached on the waist. Now that wearing silk is in fashion, I can use this dress in a casual way with a leather jacket if I wish. 
I couldn't stop thinking about Liesl's dress in the Sound of Music so I made a separate top that looks like Liesl's dress, and put it over the top of my silk dress so that the upper portion of my dress now resembles Liesl's dress.

I used chiffon fabric for the top. 

On the back of the chiffon top I attached snap fasteners. I'm going to wear this top with a pair of trousers or a skirt.
 This is my version of Liesl's dress; I really like how it turned out.
I want to wish you success in everything you do. Love and happiness around your loved ones.

Crochet Taxidermy Animal Heads

 I found a wonderful crochet book by Vanessa Mooncie with
beautiful well made patterns. I really enjoyed making these crochet animal trophies.
I wanted to make the zebra and when I finished it I could not stop making the other patterns in the book.
