Artisan Blog Hop day 10

Thanks for stopping in on the 2011 artisan award blog hop! This has been so much fun sharing with all of you the creations that were made for this award. There are ten stops on this hop, so be sure to make it full circle to see everyone's talent. If this is your first stop, then once you get back to me you have made it the whole way through. If this isn't your first stop you should be coming from Sandra Farrell 's blog. Doesn't she have such amazing projects, so much talent is in this group! Well as I promised I was saving the best for last...

My dress. This project is the reason I decided to enter the contest. I got the idea while at the store when I saw jewelery holders in the shape of a dress. I thought it would be so cute to use it as an actual dress form, so I went home and that night while my little ones were in bed I started cutting. It actually came together pretty easily on the first try, but then came the flowers...those took a while:) And then had piecing all the pearls. I really enjoyed this project and hope you do as well.

Here is a closer picture of the details. The colors are pear pizazz, peach parfait, poppy parade and whisper white. Now be sure to hop over to Heather Klump's blog and see her projects, she is amazing!

Beautiful. Someone should design this in human size; would make a gorgeous wedding dress. Congrats on the award.
