Months ago David and I traveled up to Raleigh NC for my first Handmade Market. It was right before Mother's Day and the crowd was almost non stop so it made it hard to shop for my own gifts, I was very happy to see a familiar face at the table next to me.
SewOno! We met at Ice in June 2007 and I was so excited to see her again. You should check out her blog at http://sewono.blogspot.com/ and her Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5156498
After the show we loaded up the car and hit a few thrift stores on the way out. where I purchased what would be the basis for my first piece featuring the birds in cages. I took a picture of the fabric while i was in line at the store as a part of my embellishment class I was taking at the time.
