I was given a 4x8 space this time, so instead of cramming it full, I chose to have a patchwork theme to represent the 40 new fabrics in the Summer Soiree Collection for Michael Miller. I can handle busy in a clean, organized kinda way, ya know? So here it is.
The ottoman is just a reflection of some fabrics in my new line and actually includes strike-offs (not the real deal) since I didn't have fabrics til the last minute. My man made this ottoman for ME and ultimately our family room! If I can figure out a way to come up with cool ottoman legs I'd love to provide an ottoman tutorial for you all. I love the big chunky balled legs and couldn't find them anywhere. I actually bought an ottoman and took the legs off to use on my own version, I was that desperate!! Anyone have some big, fat, round, layered ball legs (and not our own, my ladies) please let me know.
Next in the booth is this collage I made with various florals and base prints from the new Summer Soiree Collection with a bit of vintage lace encased in an IKEA frame. My inspiration came from the arrangement Kathy Miller sent me when I destroyed my arm/shoulder immediately after signing on w/MMF. All I know is that after such a severe break, I could only hope for some mobility. Dr's kept referring to my break as "bad; really bad". It is now my personal miracle. Seriously, I sign my name, paint and draw from the same arm that was totally not connected. What can I say? I still am amazed that planes can fly.
Here is my Oh Jackie! handbag that is soon to be a pattern. I have been refused entrance until I hand over the bag. Hope the pattern is hugely popular and available. Hows that for optimism?
A settee pillow. Yes, I will make this available. Do I lose sleep for nothing? Soon, very soon.
