Hello all, sitting here in the freeze of a March snowstorm, I am really wishing I was back South again. Yes, I got to get away for 7 days, four of which where in Florida with my college best friend and 3 days on a business meeting. Now dressing again in woolies after wearing shorts etc, well, I have to say I am longing for warm weather.
My mini private vacation revitilized me and my hopes and ideas for sewing and the shoppe. I am so thankful that I have my little corner of the world for things that I love. Even with our economic world turning upside down on an hourly basis, I am happy that sewing will always need supplies.
Now I have the coming excitement of Beverley Sheldrick and her beautiful Shawl. Then we continue on with the Spring and summer sewing, new things coming in. And personally, I have my son's wedding to look to...yes I am sewing and making my outfit. LOL...anyone have a pattern out there...?? Traditional, princess lines, sleeveless a-line gown...size 20 at least. I intend to cover it with a blouse/jacket by Vaune Pierce called Elegant Couture...in Silk Shantung. I even plan to bead my own buttons!! YES...they are neat. Let's see...only 13+ weeks to go...1/4 of a year, three months, oh I have plenty of time...stay tuned....I will get it done.
Hope to see you all sometime in the future at the shoppe. Keep stitching...
