For me, March is likened to Wednesday being ‘hump’ day. March signals the beginning of spring with daffodils, March madness, St. Patrick’s Day, kite flying and sometimes Easter baskets. I think in this issue of Bear in Mind, we have touched on just about every one of those aspects of March. It is another packed issue for you to enjoy, hopefully with a cup of ‘green’ tea!
We welcome Susie Gay as our guest this month as she shares a beautiful smocked collar. I have heard from many shops in the past 18 months that they are seeing a revival of smocked collars. This one is especially nice as the plate can be so easily adapted and individualized! Susie even shares her method of making padded coat hangers for adult, child and even doll clothing!
Louise Hedrick is back with her immense knowledge of vintage dolls. What a treat to have her sharing. This month is an introduction to German china dolls and is so very interesting.
Annabelle and Ping are hosting a Slumber Party in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Oh, to have the energy of these young ladies….My bet is that not much sleep was had!
I will not keep you further as you have lots of reading and enjoying inside, so I leave you to stay warm and Happy stitching…
