35 International Princess Project

International Princess Project is about getting women in India out of the sex trade and teaching them skills so they can earn money to care for themselves and their family.

Today Monica, a faithful volunteer for IPP, and I sewed table runners (from beautiful sarai cloth) for the upcoming fundraiser in Huntington Beach CA.

Day 34 Poor Little Rich Girl

One of my favorite things to make is an upcycled garment..  This jacket was a great discovery while I was volunteering at the Salvation Army store in Lower Hutt NZ earlier this year.  I have added some satin or silk trim and an oversized pocket.  A few baubles and beads and it will be ready for Rigas Clothing Store in Laguna Beach and Palm Desert CA.  Poor Little Rich Girl is the name of the clothing line.

thirty three days of creating

Merodies quilt has the binding on and ready to send to Seddon NZ.  I hope it gets there safely.  I will miss this quilt, especially in the winter. M will love the flannel backing.

Sleep well Merodie and Rob.

32nd Day Fernleaf Ave.

My daughter and her roommate are wanting a lovely cottage garden, so together we have been working on watering and feeding and pruning and weeding.  But mainly watering.  Now the blooms are coming.

Creating in the Classroom Day 31

My friend, Sarah, teaches at a middle school in Claremont CA.  It has been a tradition for me for several years to help her in the classroom right before school starts in Sept. and then again in June for teardown.
I love being back in the classroom....esp when there are no kids..!

30 Ta Da..!

The circles quilt washed and sharing the limelight with some 'Double Delight' roses from the garden.
The flannel backing makes it soft and the raw applique gives it a vintage/shabby chic look.

29 Binding Circles

Binding is sewn onto the Circles Quilt....almost there. I think this project has been my most favorite in a while.
