The Vogue pattern for the Chanel jacket will be made out of this a heavy weight silk weave. I found it on a blog I read as she now sells fabrics, it will be perfect. (That would be A Fashionable Stitch check my blog roll.)Trim is hard to buy without seeing it. I have to work on that.
This is my kale I want you to know it grows here in Alaska in the winter. It doesn't seem to be affected by the cold.
I snapped this photo when I got out of my car to pick up the mail in our cluster boxes (with ice cleats on.) The parking lot here is totally ice, you could skate on it. Skating another thing, my new sewing student wants me to start up my ice skating again with her so I'll see about going again this month, a tricky area when one is in their 70's. My other friend is also my age and wants to try and get back some of her skills so she has invited me to come along to beginner lessons. I guess when you miss 30 or 40 years skating you need to start at the beginning again. We shall see how things go and if I survive. Maybe I can post a photo of us Senior gals skating next week.
