    Don’t you just love Tammy? Because of her brilliant work and tutorials, I have been so inspired to create. When looking for crinoline last year to try my hand at her flowers, using my well used tattered floral die, I went to Joann’s. No one know what crinoline was. You should have heard me trying to explain to blank faces. BUT….I was determined to find it. My nose led me to the right place and…you betcha….I was triumphant. Got my crinoline, took it home and lost it. It’s here somewhere. LOLOLOLOL…….

    Wonderful! I’m planning to use the die and make fabric flowers from fabric scraps from my wedding dress (which I made almost 29 years ago) to decorate the ribbon sash of my daughter’s wedding dress. It’s on the plan for the weekend!
