At last

Well there you have it: it's temporary, but at last the disdressed banner is updated for the season. Although I have to tell you that I went waltzing out of the apartment without a jacket at 7:30 this morning and seriously regretted my choice of attire for the day. Yesterday Tsia and I had a lunchtime picnic wearing light jackets; today we needed our coats and scarves. It must be spring!


Ok, I've heard you: I am working on patterns for the two bags and will let you know when they are available. I'm hoping to create them as downloadable pdf files, but stay tuned and I'll let you know. Creating the patterns themselves takes very little time; it's the writing of the instructions that seems to command hours.



And since every post needs a photo or two, today's pictures are springtime window displays from Purl, Rugby (I love all those colored candies--they remind me of Jane), and a store on West Broadway. I can't believe I didn't bother to notice which store it was, I was just so mesmerized by those adorable textile pastries.


Have a great weekend!

  11. The banner is a great idea...we have exactly the same puzzle here in Munich (I bought it a couple of years ago) and the kids (+ myself) love to play with it.

    Also like the bag very much - the colour combination is fabulous.
