|All white tutu framed in a Paris window|
All white tutu with 9 layers of tulle, crystals, feathers, and all other kinds of frou frou and fluff! It takes me about a week working all day. Some of this of course is errors that need to be ripped out and redone. Sewing is one of these things that I am determined to succeed at! One day I started counting my errors in the first part of the morning. I hit 18. Not a good day. But when the results turn out how I imagined, it makes it all worth it!

I managed to complete a tutu this past week and probably more proud then I should be. The details, terminology and desire to create something as beautiful as those I've seen seemed insurmountable. But I am ready for another. Of course my favorite part was creating the design of the embellishments.

I recently participated in a class on how to make a tutu. It is much much harder than I thought. I took the course in London at www.theshoemakingschool.co.uk In two days we were able to construct a tutu and leave with all its ruffles in place. I for one was always behind and needed a lot of help. The layers and sewing and construction just needed more thinking on my part and 2 days wasn't enough for me. I am continuing on my tutu making education by finding other instructions and few and far between Youtube videos. My goal is to create beautiful one of a kind ballet costumes here in France.

Focus is a difficult word for me but I've recently decided to be more adult and focus on my paper illustration passion. I have loved creating with paper all my life and not sure why all the distractions from the medium occurred. So 25 pages of an upcoming children's book with about 13 more to go.
Details have always been a double edged sword for me because with details your illustrations are engaging and rich but then lots of details and it slows me down. I have also begun hiding an animal on each page. He's always there hanging out. I won't say what he is but it should be fun for children to start to spot him as they read the book.
