Beautiful Ann! How disappointing that you couldn't wear it to the wedding. I know you'll think of another time, or two.... :)

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't see any of your current pictures. I get your site when I click on the camera icon on the review page, but once there, no matter which picture I click on, nothing happens. Obviously, this is my problem, because other viewers are commenting on how lovely your pictures are. Can someone please help me. Thanks, Billie

Ann, Your creations are always so beautiful and I love seeing them. Unfortunately, when I click on the photo icon I'm taken to a web page that contains all your albums. Where do I find the pictures for this garment. Thanks a bunch, Katie...

Terrific looking, as always, Ann, but I had a hard time finding the photos. For some reason, your link goes straight to all of your albums. Hmm...a puzzle: which of your albums would this be in? 'Found it in your 2006 album, in case anyone else's link isn't working in the standard way. Love the jacket, and also loved seeing the quilt show exhibition: bet you were the hit of the show.

Beautiful jacket Ann! Too bad you weren't able to wear it, but I am sure other opportunities will present themselves.

Egads! It appears Yahoo changed their photo program overnight. They have said this new "improved" program was coming. Looks like I have a lot of work to do to reorganize my photos.

I love this! I too have sewed with silk/pearls and it is very very time consuming to take off all the pearls in the seamlines. Beautiful job, lovely jacket and person wearing it.

Stunning, Ann, just stunning! IKWYM about those durned beaded sequined fabrics, but your effort was worth it! -Ann

Glorious jacket, dress, shoes. How sad you didn't get to show it off at the wedding. I recently finished a blouse from fabric with some beading and I agree - it was an ordeal. Like childbirth the pain is a distant memory. The garment stills hangs in my sewing room so I can admire it.

Hi I was given this pattern to finish for a friend but the instructions were lost (!). I am looking for someone who still has this pattern to photocopy the instructions and share them with me. Is this something that would be easy for you to do? I would appreciate it inmensely :-)
