Back to my roots!

After dedicating so much time to my new love, fringe; I've recently gone back to some good old fashion (machine!) applique.

The first shirt I made for a customer who is about to have #2. Congrats, Kristi! The second one I made for a little boy who, obviously, is turning one. I'm making one for his 3-year-old brother too, but haven't quite gotten it camera-ready yet!

I took both of these to Soutlake Oktoberfest this past weekend and they generated several orders. Woo Hoo! Also, after the exciting weekend I read something disturbing about some of the goings-on there.

Man arrested after taking photos at event

SOUTHLAKE -- A 60-year-old North Richland Hills man was arrested during Oktoberfest festivities Sunday on suspicion of using a camera to take "inappropriate or improper" photographs of women and children, police said. Louis J. Vogel was observed taking the photographs at Southlake Town Square, Lt. Ashleigh Douglas of the Southlake Department of Public Safety said Tuesday. "This, in addition to information officers obtained once they made contact with the subject, indicated the pictures were inappropriate or improper, and subsequently led to the arrest," she said. She declined to describe the specific content of the photographs because the images are considered evidence in an ongoing investigation. Vogel was arrested about 5:15 p.m. Sunday and released Monday after posting $5,000 bail, Douglas said. Vogel could not be located to comment Tuesday. Improper photography or visual recording is a state jail felony punishable by up to two years' imprisonment. The charge applies to photographs or images taken without a person's consent, with intent of sexual gratification on the part of the photographer. -- Ben Tinsley
