Southern Women's Conference

 Well here we are in Florida. I don't want to brag too much but it really is beautiful and warm here. The first person we met was Suede from Project Runway. He has been designing patterns for Simplicity. He takes one design and creates 3 patterns featuring edgy, classic and flirty. It was really fun to see the different ideas.
 I saw this jacket and thought the fabric print and idea were fabulous. We are releasing a new line for Riley Blake Designs that has a classified add. I have been seeing handbags and fun clothing with these kind of prints on. I think it is a great look.
  I loved this camper. I want one. I would call it the "glamper."
The other thing I liked today were these fabulous decorated cakes.
 Notice the girls pink tips on her blond hair in the back there. I thought it was kind of cool. I'm thinking of doing something different with mine.
 I have to say it was fun seeing Riley Blake Design buttons and crochet flowers being sold in this little venue.
 Again we saw Suede with a Princess someone. We watched a Simplicity fashion show and it was really great. There were a lot of very fashionable, modest outfits I thought my girls would really like to wear.

 You have to see the rest of these cakes. I had to take some close ups. I thought they were very creative and beautiful.












Cindy and I just finished teaching a demo and a make and take. I think we had a class of about 40 women. I designed a bracelet. It was embellished with buttons and yoyos. We taught them how to make the yoyos.While they were sewing the yoyos we did a trunk show with some of our quilts that we brought. We had a great time. We teach once more tomorrow. We will be teaching lanyards and my good friend Paula made about 70 of them. We will be showing how to make zipper flowers to embellish the lanyards. Enjoy your weekend. I hope to be here again tomorrow with another day at the Southern Women's Conference.
