Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope this finds you with family, friends, and wonderful food. We will be in Phoenix, celebrating with my husband’s family.
I am posting pictures of the project that I am teaching at The Children’s Corner in Nashville (one of my favorite fabric stores), in February. The jumper has a little peek-a-boo pocket, perfect for a tiny treasure. The blouse is out of Liberty of London Tana Lawn. I used that for the piping and the pocket on the jumper, as well as on the capelet. The jumper is pique’, and the unlined capelet is a Melton wool, perfect for fall weather, as the season changes. it is available in 3 different colorways. I will also teach about lining – how to decide when and what, and how to add it to a pattern that does not call for it.
I love the traditional design of the jumper and blouse, with the added whimsy of the pocket and capelet. This has been in the works for a while, and it is noce to see it come to fruition. I did not realize that Frozen 2 would be making an appearance, but when I had a neighbor’s little girl try it on, the first thing she said was “Oh it is an Anna cape!”. Not really, but she was excited! February 6-8, 2020 (and I can not believe we are at 2020 already – remember when we were worried about Y2K?). For more information, you can contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call Children’s Corner at 615-292-1746. I hope to see you there!
I also wanted to pass along the link to these great project bags from Amazon. There are 18 in the set, 2 of each size and color(8 different sizes). They are made of a mesh reinforced plastic with a zipper. They are (kind of) clear, so you can see what is in them, perfect for projects and supplies. They are very similar to the bags at The Container Store at a fraction of the price. The set of 18 is only $12.99! I have included the link below, if you are interested. This is NOT an advertisement for these. I use mine all of the time and thought I would share with you.
I hope to be adding posts a little more frequently. My website / blog is in the process of being upgraded and is almost done. I am going to be transitioning over to more blog posts – it takes a LOT longer to write a newsletter than a post, so hopefully you will be hearing from me more often!
Before I sign off, one more picture… of Felix! He is now 6 months old, ready for his first Christmas, and he will be in CA with us! I was back in Cape Cod for 10 days at the beginning of November, right after the fires. Grammy heaven!
