My friend Kendra asked me to make a custom cape for her beautiful daughter Ainsley’s First Communion. The cape is raw (dupioni) silk with silk hand embroidery. I modified a vintage pattern and also modified some floral embroidery patterns I found on-line. I embroidered a combination of swirls, daisies, and leaves along the edges of the collar and body of the cape.

So honored to have made this cape for Ainsley. She is such a wonderful girl as is her mom!

My Nuno felted scarf won third prize at the Weston Arts and Crafts Association (WACA) 2014 Spring Awards Show. The “crafts” category included scarves, clothing, accessories both knitted and sewn, pottery, fused glass, turned wood, and jewelry. I am very pleased to have won; bonus, scarf sold!
