inspiredfriend: bari j.

I'm so pleased to present my inspiredfriend Bari J...
Can you believe this fabulous little nest of fabric scraps...

So clever and fun!



And you won't believe your eyes when you see the fabulous wallhanging she made...layers and layers of appliqued flowers, executed beautifully. Really, a work of art!

I met Bari J. while waiting to present at the Country Living Pitch Your Product last March, she was very nice and her bags were beautiful. I also saw her in her booth at the Farm Chicks. Glad to hear she is following her dream of fabric designing, she is a natural talent and her work is beautiful.
