SO! Today is the day the weather man is predicting a snow storm in North Georgia, which means it probably will not happen. We usually get the surprise storms here, but you never know since the Super Bowl is here in Atlanta Sunday. Nevertheless, I mentally took note of which needlework projects I could work on, if stuck inside for a few days. I am ready!
I finished the newsletter earlier this week and gosh is it a packed issue! We welcome back Jeannie Baumeister – in case you have been living in a cave – she owns Old Fashioned Baby! She is so verytalented and loves designing baby day gowns. When I sent her the supplies for this months’ feature, I admit I was having a difficult time envisioning what she would do with these trims in a daygown. Alas, when I saw the final product, I was amazed, and never would have thought of these working as perfectly together in such a tiny gown! Please visit her website – all you need to do is GOOGLE Old Fashioned Baby – and be prepared to spend time on her wonderful and inspiring blog!
We also have Part II of “An Introduction to Clothing Design”. This month I am concentrating on Texture and Pattern. As well, my Easter vignettes mirror our discussion. Many times I decide on a subject and then realize I too, need to do some research. I have always believed that ‘to teach is to learn twice’, and so it has been with this series. We will conclude next month with Color in Design, so stay tuned.
I will not chatter on so that you can begin reading. As I close, so far it is just lightly raining outside. Will it change to snow as predicted? Time will tell……
