Benita is getting ready to weave fabric for a new winter coat. Here's my handwoven coat. The fabric is a fluffy wool boucle, and the garment structure is wayyy simple. Dropped shoulders, layered front. Fastens with two big snaps. Blanket stitched raw edges. Warm, dashing and versatile.
I got a look at the place where the launch party will be held and came home with my mental engine just racing. Now I know what colors will be good, which serving pieces I need to bring, how we can arrange the food and punchbowls, . . . oh, I'm much happier. I do like to plan ahead!
