collaboration

so rarely do my husband and I collaborate and it not end in almost divorce, but this time we had our own separate parts… and we survived. picasso’s coffeehouse commissioned us to do curtains for their front room. i sewed eight coffee sacks together with ties and michael painted some retro-style coffee pictures on them. they turned out great and they look pretty cool.

new bags

these are some of the new bags, they are available still, but who knows for how long.

this first bag is awesome, not only because it says “gayo mountain” in hot pink, but the fabric is really cool and there is en elephant.

here are two more bags.

my bag… all mine

so i finally made my own bag again. i couldn’t bring myself to do an exact replica of my stolen one, but i did use the same green curtains for the exterior. I decided to go ahead and use the upper half of a vintage “Kay-Dee” linen wall-hanging that was given to me by the nice lady at the antique store next to Picasso’s. The flowers are Dogwoods… the bottom half of the linen says Missouri and has a butterfly amoungst the limbs ( a little too touristy for my own taste). so yeah I have my own bag to show off.

the lovely tag that michael silkscreened for me to use in my bags. its great having a husband whose an almost jack of all trades.

speaking of michael, he just finished the shakespeare in the park play, “Comedy of Errors.”

He painted the set and played a small part, but probally the funniest one.

my step dad John also was in the play too. he was the southern doctor and he always does a great job.

kids are a cryin’ gots to go…
