Except for the mountain that was plowed from the cul-de-sac into the front yard, all of last weeks snow has melted.
Yesterday I wore my Alpine Tweed sweater and the boldly patterned dress I sewed to church.
Schoolhouse Tunic minus the pleats in the skirt. I wore this with a grey camisole and grey tights. I love this cardigan. The dress is okay. I am still on a search for the perfect tunic/dress pattern. I saw Lisette pattern 2245 on Pinterest, ordered it, and it arrived on Saturday. I need some time to work up a little sewing bravery- I will mentally sew it a few times and then have to wake up one day with all the stars lined up and say to myself "today is the day"- and then I can start sewing on that one. Stay tuned.
By far, the very nicest thing that happened last week was this:
My friend, YarnshopAnne, made this quilt. For ME!
This was a thank you for a sweater I made and gave to her. She is most definitely Knit worthy, the sweater is perfect on her and I wanted her to have it with no strings attached and no thanks needed..... But I very happily accepted the quilt!
I have taken about eleventy-two photos of this quilt, and I move it about, trying it on in different rooms. Right now it is on the railing between the family room and kitchen- pretty much so I can admire it all day long.
Thank you Anne!
