It’s the Academy Awards tonight and the whole town is a flutter! My little mannequin is in her formal attire in a polka dot embroidered silk gown with leftover beads from a recent project fashioned into a stunning necklace and trim for her “hat” for the occasion.  We dress her up seasonally at the showroom or to display a new fabric for her ever changing wardrobe.

I will not be in my silk gown tonight but instead attending the opening of the LA Design Bloggers Conference at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel where they’ve promised to turn on the big screens so we can cheer on the awards! Good luck to all.
