I have been absent from blogging but I hope to step up in the coming days...once I can.
Last summer (2014) has been a different kind of summer break for me. I did not sew.
I guess that's where the saying comes in "To everything there's a time"
In July, one of my great-aunts died & in August one of my aunts died. These were two beloved individuals who I've know all my life & loved dearly.
However, the Lord continues to add to our family.
We are extremely grateful for His continuous blessings & mercies in our lives.
In concluding this post, I want to share with you a conversation I had with my late aunt. CLick this link:http://www.chronicles101.info/home/chronicles101-6-miscarriages-2-children I hope that it blesses you.
Here are a few pictures of wedding with wedding dress done by Magnola.
Magnola Designs: Unique Creativity , Limited Edition
Here are some pictures when the fabric was being cut out from the paper pattern.
After drafting and cutting out the paper pattern, this pattern is placed on the folded fabric. The paper is pinned to the fabric & then cut out.
Wedding dress number three(3) is in progress and would be ready for July 2014, all going well by God's grace.
It's always an exciting journey to create a unique wedding dress of original design.
So I've sewn suits, blouses, skirts and dresses for myself.
Ok! So I have complete my second wedding dress project and it was an amazing experience.
The results were splendid.
(check out the photos below)
Whatever your gift or your talent is; use it. Take a step towards your goals and your dreams today and DO NOT let discouragement keep you down. NEVER...><I just feel like sharing my passion for sewing & designing<>
In 2012, I made my wedding dress for my wedding.....this was a great accomplishment.
3. To boost my self confidence and self esteem in my sewing hobby.
4. For the fun of it.
One year later, I look back and I am humbled to realize that with the help, direction and wisdom from God, and others I was able to accomplish the task of making my first wedding dress.
Now as I seek to complete my second wedding dress project, I look forward with great anticipation for its results.
Here's a mini-view of the back of the dress - corset styled.
I come from a rich heritage of individuals who sew.
My grandmothers were seamstress and one of my grandfathers a tailor.
My mom did some of her own sewing and other hand crafts.
So I'd say that my gift for sewing was inborn..
As a teenager during summer holidays my mom would teach me some of the various crafts such as knitting and crocheting.
At secondary school I had learn different sewing stitches in my needlework class....which I had always enjoyed.
In 2009, I bought a sewing book in the Logos Ship which came to our country.
This book taught some basic sewing skills & techniques.
After all, I was able to learn how to smock a dress...a technique which my mom was teaching me.
My Grandmother stitched up my dress for me.....and I was definitely proud to wear it.
Welcome to Magnola's space.
A display of creativity.
I love fashion.
Creating and making new items from cloth.
I love Jesus and I seek to be modest in my fashion design/creations so that you can see Jesus through my creations & you will want to live for Jesus too.
Hope that you will enjoy my blogs.
