Keeper in Progress

Gosh, I've missed you! Life has been on the very crazy side, and blogging just had to take a back seat for a bit. But, I'm back, and excited to share what I've done on my new custom item.
~*~
The top photo is from my customer; it represents the colors she would like incorporated in her project keeper.
~*~
After lots of messages back and forth, these are the fabrics that were finally chosen. My customer would like an emphasis on greens and golds/yellows, but other than that, I have "artistic license" on color placement and design.

Here is what I have completed so far! This is 12" wide, and serves as the base of the keeper. I LOVE this color combination- it is so modern and fresh!

So, what have I missed in my absence? Please leave a comment and let me know how you are doing and what you are up to these days!!

Beautiful!!! You did an amazing job choosing those colours, they do look just like the sample! I can't wait to see the finished product. :D

It's good to have you back, too. We missed you! :)

I haven't been up to much while you've been gone. I'm having a stay-cation with my shop in vacay mode, and it's been a nice break. :)

HUGS to you et all!

I really, really, love your project keeper, part 1! It's such a happy little dude! What a rush of "instant happy" to just dig your hand in...really a nice piece of work! You do have an eye for style!
