This is Gertie, my own personal 'bag lady'... and she is full of personality. She was created by local metal artist Paul Forkner. She will be following me around to shows and carrying my bags.
I had to share her with you as she makes me smile and hopefully will make you grin also. Like me, she is large and has a presence. How can you not fall in love with her......

Geisha Girl Coat

This is a coat, not a jacket. And it has three geisha girls on it. Don't know how I am going to do the closures yet but I do know I really like this coat.
Everything is coming together. I will post my new 'bag lady' display stand (sculpture) in the next few days...she is a hoot, made by welder and artist Paul Forkner...I think I will call her is good.....

Just finished this fabric for a runway coat and I kind of don't want to cut it up!...It makes two interesting art quilts. The smaller piece is for the back panel of the jacket and the larger will get cut up in four pieces....I think I am going to stare at it somemore and then decide what to do.
If I elect to keep them whole, I will have to make some more material for a 'showstopper jacket'. The problem is I am running out of supplies and the $ to buy is never easy....
