About Me

My photo
Upland, Ca, United States
Sissy Dre was inspired by my father, Robert Felix Rosales, particularly his stylish clothes and big-hearted ways of being. My father was always open to any new hobbies or opportunities and especially enjoyed meeting new people. I take on this creative venture to honor him in my own way. I have been making cloth dolls since January 2009 when I left the corporate world behind and moved to Upland, CA. with my family. Our lively household includes two teenage children, four dogs, six cats, and a wonderful husband who always supports us with love and grace. I had never worked a sewing machine before but I truly love making dolls and enjoy every aspect of creative life. Making dolls form scratch has opened artistic doors within me that I never knew existed and I hope this blog helps to inspire some crafty part of you too. 000000

Vintage Wood Grain Embroidery Hoops

Hi Peeps ~ 
It's been a while since the last time I've blogged..
..what a bummer for me. 
Last weekend hit about 10 garage sales
here in my little town of Upland, CA.
I really enjoy chatting with the old folks, 
I love hearing the stories behind the things 
that they are wanting to depart with, after
so many years of holding on their enduring
treasures. My most enjoyable find during the 
weekend was the "Vintage Wood Grain Embroidery Hoops"
I suppose it's because I'm familiar with the sewing 
community and enjoy the stories of how these older
gals got their start in the business. As well as 
tips, and advise only by experience they are willing to 
share. 







Now what to do with them???? Hum....
Well, I've had them for a couple of days now, starring at
them is not working~nor is it giving me any ideas
on how to re-purpose them. 
So, If I don't come up with any ideas....off to the shop
they go....

Much Love to you daily ~
Andrea
