Some of my readers have been saying things about "Spring Dresses." For example, it was suggested that I should re-make that dress for Spring. As you might have seen from my latest high fashion photo shoot, we here in Minnesota are still in what a dear friend calls "Sepia Season."
Yes, I should be sewing for Spring, but this is hardly inspiring. I think that is one reason flowers are so welcome on Valentines Day. It really is a time when we need to soak up the colors and scents of opalescent petals. I recently brought some hyacinth bulbs out of a dark, cold basement closet where I had been "forcing" them. ( I always have hated that term.) Within days, they began turning from yellow to green, and then they unfolded into fragrant bloom.
Happy Valentine's Day! A tiny bit of Spring in the Winter.
Maybe if I spend more time staring it this I will know what to sew for Spring. How do the rest of you prepare for yourself for Spring? Seed Catalogs? Fashion Magazines? Daydreams?
And, just because I know you can't think about anything else, a reader over at Pattern Review tipped me off to the origins of the Evil Woman.
