Just another manic Monday...oh oooo oh...

I don't know why I thought that this Monday would be any different than any other Monday. Maybe because the dew on the grass tickled my feet this morning as I took my daily trip to the mail box? Dewy grass tickling your feet first thing in the morning should be enough magic to change any Manic Monday into something else... Or maybe the dew was just reminding me to stay on my toes... Does dew know what kind of day you are going to have?

Today I started unpacking the Soiree precuts that I ordered last week. It is so sad to me that this line is almost out of print. Such a gorgeous collection deserves a long life in my opinion. But those are the rules that Moda lives by and I am sure that they have their purpose. But alas, the Soiree Charm packs are sold out and the bundles too. I guess I will have to tuck mine away for a day brightener the next time I need one. Here are some pics of the beauties...

This is a dress I designed last week. Sarah is wearing it to school tomorrow. Lets hope she doesn't get it filthy. I used a Honey Bun from Moda, which are strips of fabric that are 1.5" wide by 44" long, to create the bias binding and straps. Not the best picture but, you can see how beautiful the collection is.
