I recently took a short trip to visit a girlfriend in Salado TX. It's a small town north of Austin in the Hill Country region of TX. My friend has a gazillion deer on her property; probably because she feeds them twice a day. They are the best trained deer in TX. If she doesn't have chow around mealtime, they'll come nosing around the patio or even come into the open garage! I definitely enjoyed seeing them!
One of the days I was there we took a stroll through the local shops. One shop had a large selection of Magnolia Pearl clothes. Magnolia Pearl is a Fredericksburg TX company known for their raw edge look. I was immediately intrigued because this is the 1st time I've seen the clothes in a store.
This lightweight coat really caught my eye. All the diamonds are machine appliqued to a muslin base. The edges are left raw and are already a bit shaggy. Truly a serious amount of work--I believe the clothes are now sewn in India.
Yep, I loved this one! (below)
The bead shop had a few treasures I can use on my current Crazy Quilt. I had to buy the deer charm!
A fun trip!
