Applique Scraps – I must admit, I stink at applique. I keep all my fabric scraps in a big pink vintage breadbox and when full, give them to my Irish Buddy™ so she can create awesome appliques!
Alencon Lace – oh, how I LOVE this stuff. I’ve managed to acquire a lovely stash of it and use it when embellishing infant and bridal items. To learn more:

Alterations – I’d rather slice my finger with a rotary cutter than do alterations. Whenever anyone gives me something to alter against my will, I put it in a big plastic box (aka black hole)and there it stays forever. I just don’t alter other designers’ creations…I prefer to make my own!
Artist – I painted my way through High School doing t-shirts and denim jackets…mostly Rock n Roll themes. Now that I’m grown up, I paint faux-finishes on my walls and create ceramic pieces for my holiday displays.
