i'm continuing to clean and clear out excess stuff i have. i've made it to the fabric and am starting to put it up for sale in my etsy store. it's so difficult to get rid of it, i love the fabric but my designs have been going in a different direction for awhile now. although being the gemini that i am, i want to continue going in 20 different directions all at once, but that just makes us crazy doesn't it? here's just a couple of pieces, there's more in the store and more to come.

this morning i woke up extra early for yoga. when the light of summer first begins to change, i resist it. but we're in it now and i embrace the dark mornings. i love to begin my practice while its still dark, candles and twinkle lights illuminate the studio. but this morning i forgot, today is the new moon and its a day of rest, not yoga. its also a day of setting goals and intentions, a sort of mini new year, which fits in nicely with preparing to design for both spring/summer and fall/winter of 12.

make use of the power of the new moon, today you can start anew.

i'm again teaching a series of classes - draping. we drape fabric on a dress form to create slopers - basic patterns that can then be used to create other patterns. it's really just another method for pattern making. i love this method because you see instantly if what you are creating is what you have envisioned - instant gratification! who doesn't love that?!
