The go-with-the-flo-FI

June 16, 2004

Yeah, it’s a little busy, and yeah, the bottom’s rolling a bit, but this is just too much fun! I think it’s time to transition to wider motifs, and to cut down on the lime green. The rolling will block out, I hope. If it doesn’t, I might fold the edge back like a hem and sew it down. That turqoise is Rowan fine chenille. I’ve been warned about using chenille in this project, but I can’t help myself. I love that color and texture and had to use it. For all its flaws, I think this will be a fun, wearable garment. I’m calling her Lydia.

    Now I can’t get Groucho Marx outa my head. He’s singing, ” Lydia the Tatooed Lady.” Great color combination.

    Heh-heh! That song was going through my head too!
    Although, *ahem* she’s actually named after a character in Pride and Prejudice. What better source than Jane Austen for a random bunch of girls’ names!

    Very nice, Linette. You’re so creative.
    P.S. Don’t worry about the cow comment, I left a comment on Louise’s blog saying I loved the cow sculptures she photographed in Prague, so that’s not spam…

    Thanks, Caroline. I actually visited the cow site and enjoyed it, but I was kind of puzzled at the connection 🙂

    Wowza – beautiful, Linette! And the patterning suits the name, somehow. Your color sense is lovely. 🙂

    you made a swatch in August2003 with blue colours and later in red. Did you ever made a sweater of it? I really like the swatch and wonder if its possible to use it for a sweater?

    You know how the rich and famous have personal shoppers? Well, I wish Linette could be my personal colorist – fibers, clothes, home decorating, hair, makeup . . .

    Linette, you have a great sense of color. It looks like you come by it naturally. Kudos, kiddo! :o)
