Our Wearable Art Extravaganza is this weekend, with dress rehearsal this evening. I am so excited to see what everyone has come up with, and to dance my creations. My sketchbook this past week has been a place to work out last minute design details as I sit in my cozy chair in the evening.

Lastly, I have been commissioned by a young fisherwoman friend to create her prom dress using Grunden's rain gear. Here are my initial thoughts for that project, which is proceeding along in reality now, and has actually morphed into a different design. (I will show you that project soon).
