My local Goodwill has a bargain basement where all the usually unwanted things get sold. Today they had two boxes full of patterns and I bought all the ones that werent chewed on by some criiter. 74 patterns, all vintage, and all for 5 bucks.

I am gonna be a busy girl

I had a couple yards of batik that I wanted to use, and I created this:

it has criss-cross straps in the back. There are pleats along the front of the bodice.

8  Pink and Purple Glass Bead Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TexasThistle on: February 07, 2009 02:17:46 PM
I vowed not to buy any more beads until I had de-stashed but these called to me, they are my favorite colors and I just had to make myself a necklace. What do you think?

9  De-stashing my beads (lots of pics) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TexasThistle on: February 07, 2009 02:15:34 PM
I am trying to thin out my beads...sadly, this did not even cut a notch in the amazing amount of beads I have. Here are my efforts so far:

crocheted choker

another one

chinese ceramic beads and hemp

gold wire necklace

faux pearls

jade colored plastic set

purple necklace and bracelet

peace sign pendants

tell me what you think of my work!

10  Skulls and Blue Lightning Jeans recon (lots of pics) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TexasThistle on: February 07, 2009 02:08:59 PM
I spent a loong time on these jeans and killed 5 needles (not to mention the attempted murder of my sewing machine....*sigh* I think I am going to buy an industrial strength sewing machine for future denim projects in order to preserve my poor sewing machine). This idea has been in my head for a long time ever since a friend reminded me of a dress design I once did called "blue lightning"....i have had this fabric for a while and used some of it on this (the rest is going to be a matching corset). This is really modivating me to lose weight, I can't wait to wear it!!!
