Lacebook Round Robin "A Woman in Paris"

These pages were created for my friend Socrates.

Her vintage theme was A Woman in Paris
Originally her theme had millinery....hence the references in my pages

Silk ribbon rose on top of vintage netting and hat pin.

A Valentine's Day birthday is whispered throughout

Felix's Onesie and Blanket

 Last weekend, my daughter and I attended an Alabama Chanin workshop in Portland Oregon.

Projects are stencilled and stitched...layered and revealed....
 Reverse applique blanket in progress

 Our hand stitches are similiar to our hand writing...
Mine are big and extroverted.

 The cotton jersery is soft and snuggie.

 Stitched with thick and doubled buttonhole should last for several generations
