Summer is coming to an end. It's back-to-school time for children and teachers. Plans are underway for Fall and Winter - travel, holidays and weddings. And October seems to have become the new June for brides. This October I take my turn as mother-of-the-bride. It's been lots of fun spending time with my daughter, Brooke, planning for her big day. Of course, I can't just plan. Being a fiber person, I have be "hands on!" I'm currently dyeing swatches of silk fabric which will be made into wraps for the bridesmaids. Let me tell you, it's not easy to dye silk chiffon a dark brown. I'll also be designing a special shawl for Brooke and her maid-of-honor. At least the natural silk matches her gown perfectly.
And in my studio, new pieces will soon be ready for delivery. In addition to my tanks, vests and shrugs in the "Simply Ribbon" line, I've designed an open weave jacket which I think will be simply wonderful for holiday parties, resort travel or a cruise. It will be available in my usual colors as well as black. Also it can be order short as pictured above or longer. It also features a handmade glass button. These items can all be custom ordered to ensure you get the perfect piece for your size and style. You'll be the envy of all your friends.
