  2. I’ve been stalking your pages for months hoping to see a new dream ship take to the skies…

    Will she be sailing into the online shop or are you keeping her?

  3. I love it. Sooo beautiful. I especially love the sails with the embroidery on them. How do you think up these beautiful things? You are incredible.

    Thanks so much! This took such a long time to make – one of those things you start to wonder if you’ll ever finish. It will be in the shop (with others) next week. I ‘d like to spend some time with it first and take some more photos maybe. I wonder what all those edwardian ladies who’s gowns it’s made from would think about this?

    The Louisa May is the stuff of dreams. She makes my heart go pittypat!

  7. Coming out of lurkdom to comment on how beautiful this is!! I love your owls and really do wish I’d win the lottery so I could afford to own one, but have to say that this piece is absolutely stunning!

  8. Oh! I love thinking about the women who wore these gowns and what they would think…amazing creation.

    level of security. Today the rise of cheap mass production made poway car locksmith for a change in key-carrying
    personnel. Usually in Portland, locksmiths have
    also imbued excessive-technology stability actions in their
    program and provided the city with either proof of completion of training courses.
