Happy Dance!

Happy Dance started life as a collection of fancy fabrics for a jacket years ago. I realized the jacket was never going to happen and grabbed the stack to take to a retreat in April 2010. I randomly pieced rayon, silk, cotton, antique kimono scraps, and satin on squares of paper backing with no plan in mind. Here are some of the block I made and several purses.

I stitched more together randomly and made this top.

My son is going off to college in six weeks. We've been collecting the things he will need for his on-campus apartment. I think I'm distracted by the planning and graphic design work. I'm having trouble starting my next project. I know the six weeks will go by fast.
