Geshia Omi

Meet Omi....She is the third Geisha I have embroidered . Each and every one of the faces are just so different.
She needed no airbrushing, no change f threads.
This little one is done in one color of face color. The dimension is due to the strokes and direction of the stitches.
She will join her second sister in a tea cozy. Her Kimono is of gold metallic, I know...I know...I did this in a black and white. I love blank and white can truly see her beauty of the structure. When I release her as a full finished produce I will display her clothing and butterfly's in all of of her metallic glory.
I am either getting a hang of this designer and not fighting with the directional as this one was a breeze...

A delight to stitch.
You can find her and her sisters on this sight:
If, your an embroidery nut, like myself, You will love their designs.
I know I do...
When you order tell Olga, Sierra said hello.

She sure is a beauty in black and white....wait till you see her in her threads of gold!

It's been extremely hot here in my part of the world. And I had a touch of flue for three days.
I am still not ready to do any major sitting up, What ever I had I would not wish on my worst felon ....that bad!

I keep a little drawing pad under my bed for moments when I have a burst of creativity and can come to some conclusions....It is brimming over due to 3 days of resting and sleeping mostly, Also, I did drop almost 6 pounds!
But, could not eat anything for 3 days. And today I had toast and chicken soup and it made me sick!
Crushed Ice Diet .....Worked for me! lol

From Over the Rainbow and 100 degrees Midnight, I send you Silvery Moonbeams to watch over you.

Thank You for visiting my blog, Please visit my picturetrail and albums.

The Largest of the Designer Like (Gucci) is
top with real Mink pelt.
Largest in center
to the right is a 4 cup and
to the left the tiny one cup and to the right of the center is the next largest size.'
This is a little Darline',
One cup and not as tiny as her sister will be but, It is my favorite size.
This is my favorite cozy actually.
Lines in red ultra suede, and adorned with charms, a heart and bobble in silver, and a charm of London Bridge...It is laced up the back with silk cording top and bottom, The cording also cinches the fabric to make the bottom and top ruffle

This is a larger size, between medium and small, this size is much more versatile then the tiny one as, the tiny can only cover a one cup, this can cinch tighter or looser depending on the pot.

Three Little Maids are we ......

Introducing "Zoe"

Meet "Zoe". Tea Cozy to be placed on my web sight this afternoon and another of the Lady Grey Line of Tea Cozies.
This one is not stuffed heavy with a Stuffy Padding, It is however, lined in a crushed velvet, In red. It shows a raspberry color, but it is actually lined in red crushed velvet.
The design is on both sides of this little one, And unlike the Puffy Stuff Line it actually gathers top and bottom by a silk cord tightened and tied around your tea pot,
Do to the different sizes this wrapped cozy can take any pot from small to medium, Just by releasing the fabric in the casings.

The Colors of "Zoe" are a rich velvet royal blue and the lining is crushed red lining.
The design is that of :
Flowers from My Ladies Garden,
I used Cherry Red, Cimmon and metallic gold.
This shows how the back is laced up around your pot and tied in the back. Generous cording is allowed, You can cut it off it is not to your like.
This is a full view of the tea setting and "Zoe" actually on a medium fat pot.
This style allows you to keep the cozy on while brewing, seeping and then to serve with lifting the and English Dome style.

Now, that it has cooled off a little here in the studio, I can get back to work.
Here in Arizona the Monsoons start on Juli the 4th!

From Vampire to Vamp Geisha!

From Vampire Geisha to Vamp Geisha! Girlfriend took one look at the eyes, and said...She has Green were the white should be! !!! Duh!
That's Rags....Got to have someone to watch over me once in a while! lol
Now she is normal looking, My shy Little vamp. Good enough for my tea table.....Thanks Girlfriend!!!!


Geisha Face Number 1 Finally!

Monday, June 11, 2007 Fathers day is over, all the grills are cleaned, and I went into my studio to tidy up a few UFO (unfinished last week stuff) .
Found my purple bold of velvet so I can finish that project too! I had already planned to do the Geisha Number One I I really liked the faces on this design set. Several weeks ago, I purchased a new tea set. Not unusually for me I am adduced to sets like some are to shoes...I had already thought about a purse, but then again I have a zillion purses. And as this was for my private stock, well...I went a little nuts. Crystals, $ inch wide laces, Blue velvets and butterfly's front and back. As last time I had to really attention to color of threads, It will make or break the face structure. Bit, I think I should have left the crystal out of her eye, At times she looks just like a vampire! Well, I think she did anyway...
This one will not be put up for sale, I am hover working on another fall design "Cattails" pictured in the following picture, It just needs to be jazzed up, They are both lines in a beautifully dark lime crushed velvet. I love the colors of this season approaching...

Cat tails, not finished, but will be placed on the Bumblebee Lane sight when embellished up a bit.
It is lined in the same color and crushed velvet as shown in the lace piece to the left of the cozy. This is an English Dome and considered Large in size.

Butterfly's on back, New tea pot set
to left....tee He...
As always ,

"Tea Time" and Time for Tea

Tea Time here in Bumblebee Lane. Actually it is Christmas. In July I normally start my commission for Christmas Table Sets. I am awaiting UPS Gal to delivery fabrics in which the customer has selected and some designs for me to work with, What they would like to see on their napkins and tea cozies. lol

I have been trying to finish up on any projects that have been placed aside.

The above tea cozy is just that, I made the panels a few months ago, but could never really pull it together as the fabrics are brocades and in soft greys and golden green browns. I adored the fabrics. And then I was rummaging through my laces and found some ribbon trims I purchased from Joggles about a year ago, have never found a use for them. Well, later I went for my normal Double espresso coffee and passed the two and it just seemed to come together.
I found the liner that I purchased to go with the brocades and low and behold, another Tea Time Tea Cozy was produced.
As Christmas is just around the corner, literally for me. This was a fun and refreshing cozy. I happen to have dishes and several purple and violet dishes and when I put them for display to photo, Mr. Quality Control (dh) gave me the thumbs up.
All items listed on my blog and Picture trail can be found for sale (New buttons) and that's another story that was left behind in my long time away from my
SO if interested in purchasing this for yourself or that really funny old Auntie (you know the crazy one ...everybody seems to have one, I had two!) you can find the buy now buttons on
