The challenge was to interpret a song. Guess what mine was...
I like to laugh, life is so dreadfully serious that laughter is necessary to balance the whole thing.
Now let's discuss the details...
The extra bikini's are my own paper piecing pattern and reminded me of the little shops at the beaches of Fl where I grew up.
Note the three-d (functional) tote bag with my signature flamingo on it. She is wearing rhinestone catseye sunglasses in my signature pink, the three d towel has a palm tree (another series of mine) and fringe balls. Hey! Did I say I'm from Florida? I know my kitsch! The little umbrellas are three-d and there are shell buttons sewn on the tops of the umbrellas along the bottom. The palm tree fronds are appliqued in a method I teach that allows for movement, and there are heart bamboo buttons for coconuts. There is beading along the beach rivulets quilted in.
(Please excuse a tiny bit of self-advertising... I teach these techniques. You know, when you take a class and learn techniques like I teach, you put them in your little bag of tricks and bring out when needed)
The big thing is, all the other ladies are wearing conservative one piece suits. My girl, er, I am proudly showing off curves.Big, fluffy curves that I earned with surviving life.
I must credit cookies as well.
Please check her out if you are at the show! She so seldom makes it out of the house!
