First the Chanel jacket.
Big progress this last week for me.
I got the front 4 sections put together, lined, along with a bust dart and button holes. Pockets are now going on (by hand of course.)
Quilting goes through to the outside but on this black fabric it's not too visible on the outside.
4 pockets are all hand made. The trim has grosgrain ribbon underneath sewn on by hand.
Close up of a pocket inside.
This pillow I made rather quickly. It has an 18X20 background fabric with marks 1.1/4" from the top then followed by 3/4" lines all the way down. You place on the lines a folded pressed strip (from jelly rolls). Using 3 strips of each color and 5 different colors. Next pillow will be made by my student after her current project in a batik of rainbow colors. You can find on utube how to make one that is where I discovered them.

My car on ice in town at a friends. Ice cleats required if you don't want to fall. Those are my winter tires with studs.
The boys say Hi and please come back again they love the visits!
