I am writing this as daffodils and crocus are blooming, as well as the flowering trees. Where was winter? Thinking back to winters with similar temperatures, Easter has been known to come with a big freeze. Just a few years ago that was the case here in Atlanta, with Easter morning temperatures killing all our beautiful flowers. It is not too late to think about an Easter coat for that new frock. Even a simple store bought sweater can be paired with your new garment, by adding matching lace to its neck and sleeves.
This month I am starting a new series called ‘Laundry Day’ and I hope you will gain some helpful tips for keeping your fine linens pristine. I have never dreaded washing and ironing as many wives and mothers. My husband teases that when I am ready to clean; everything is either washed or thrown out! Give me a good movie and iron any day! So, hopefully, with these hints caring for your Heirloom Linens will no longer be a chore.
\Mollie Halle has been with us for some time now and most of you have had the opportunity to talk with her on the phone. With two grown girls and a grown son, she is all about ‘sibling sewing.’ We are delighted to have her in the office and grateful to have her sharing her sewing skills and ideas with us in the coming months. Her articles, begun in January, are informative and inspiring. Keep it up Mollie!
Finally, I have listed NEW Swiss Embroideries which are now 50% off. These lovely insertions and edgings are just in time for your Easter sewing. Remember you still have 6 weeks to sew!!!
Till next month, Happy Stitching,
