NEW THIS WEEK - February 8th, 2006:
Wings & Fancy Things
Yes, the February groundhog did see his shadow last
week, but we can think of that as welcome news. That gives us six more
weeks to get ready for spring!
And, when we can spend those days in a sunny sewing
room, it just doesn't matter so much that we have a little more time on our
hands before we can turn our full-blown attentions to outdoor gardening chores.
For your spring readiness pleasure, this week's designs
offer a profusion of garden blooms and favorite winged creatures in lace,
textures, and heirloom embroidery.
Layers of lace give freestanding lace flowers,
butterflies, and dragonflies a fabulous three-dimensional touch. And, singly or
in combination, they'll all make great creative accents for decorating and
standout fashion accessories--for pins, barrettes, and more.
Textured designs featuring winged creatures in crystals and fringe
add sparkle and joy to brightly colored totes and shirts. Choose from lady bug,
dragonfly, bee, and butterfly. Freestanding
lace butterflies, in patterns reminiscent of the art of crocheted lace, make
pretty embellishments for dresses, hats, belts, and lingerie, or will fly
freely in windows as welcome harbingers of spring.
Dainty heirloom designs take on new themes as lovely ladybugs,
elegant honeybees, darting dragonflies, and happy hummingbirds grant some
lighthearted fun to traditional patterns.
Sit in the sun, sew up a bright preview of spring, and enjoy the designs.
