2013 Trashion Refashion Show

What a great night! The fashion show was so fun. I was so nervous. I kept thinking that my throat was really sore and I needed to stay home on the couch!.
But I am so glad that I didn't. My daughter Annie Patrick was unable to model for me and but her friend Kara Ratcliff was able to fill in for her. She did a fabulous job at such short notice. I made a replica of my favorite high school Bobbi Brookes kilt out of a Good will castoff gathered skirt and eyelet blouse. Scissors and whack whack and needle and thread magic and what a diffence.
A new business has been born. See future creations soon: Redeux by AmyLue.

March was the first exhibit of my Dahi Tiger Quilt! I was exciting to see with other quilts by such talented people.

But April has been a crazy month. 1. This is the 1st time I am showing my "REFASHION" skirt at the Trashion/Refashion Show at the Buskirk Chumley Theater in Bloomington.More pictures to follow but I don't want to give it all away at once!
 2.  I am working on some beach cover-ups for the awesome Jealously Jane Couture Bathing Suit line. 3. Meeting with the Chem and Bio dept at IU to collaborate on a art piece of microscopic proportions!. 4. "Green" printing silk scarves and making a "refashion" quilt.
