Neda Soltani of Iran

Her name is Neda Soltani a young woman who gave her life in the struggle of
democratic change and freedom. While putting her body on the front line in order
to get the message out to the world she was shot down in front of her parents.
My heart goes out to her grief stricken father on this day. Rest in peace brave soul.

..just a little bit

I couldnt help it I has some of this fabric hanging around from the table tops for my short lived Cafe... I decided "why not..?" Why not just make a few of these bags and perhaps one or two for myself,?
I love the color explosion and the vintage patern just makes me downright happy. Ive posted a few on my Etsy shop. Stop by and take a peek.
Ive sold only one so far through that site, and I always add a litte something extra when I make a sale anywhere,.. With this one I add a little change purse of the same fabric . Its lined and has a heavy duty zipper... Now on to the next project.
Working on my table for the Tea Party , thats something to check out too...
and also my denim clutches and wristies. So much fun... Ill post a pic the moment one is finished to my satisaction,..

Last week I took some time out to visit the open studio at ArtSpace located in the former Saltz Tannery on River street.I didnt think it would be a place I could ever consider calling home, as Im the type who NEEDS to have a garden, and it appeared that there was no garden space. Not at all. Some of the spaces do have quite substanctial porch space whereinone could if needed put up the odd tomatoe and the likesOther than that itwas more pleasent than Id first expected.
