Not Con-fused

…just fused! These silk charmeuse fabrics have been Mistyfused so now I have no excuse for procrastinating on getting my chartreuse colorplay piece done. Tomorrow, I will start rotary cutting! I have a very abstract design in mind. I am in love with these colors all together.

I went to the nearby Mill End’s store where they have divine designer fabrics. I bought some black, chocolate brown and tomato red silk charmeuse to fill out my color palette. The clerk and I got to talking about Project Runway and how all of the Portland winners have purchased their fabric at the store. She told me that Gretchen Jones came in and bought fabric for her final outfits before the show had even started airing. They still have some of the fabric in stock, and she just had to show it to me. We have had 3 winners from the Portland area.

Today, when we took Scooter for a walk. We found some fake trees and shrubs on the street across from Reed College. You can click on the photos for a better view.

You can see the metal part at the bottom of the above tree.

Here are more fake trees. The tall thing is a tree trunk on the other side.

Here you can see the camera man with the umbrella covering him.

They are filming an NBC pilot, titled Grimm. It is a modern day fable in which the policeman star sees the criminals as beasts. I wonder how much our neighbors got for lending their lawn as a location for the props?

    Oh Gerrie, that silk is gorgeous! The colors and shimmer – yum! I haven’t been to the Mill End store in years, but I can see I need to add it to my Portland list. I am looking forward to seeing what you create. Have a great week and I hope the rain stops sometime soon.
