I made another one of Minnie's skirts (I love that play on words there) and this time used a neutral linen. You can't see it but the lining on the inside is pretty wild. My friend Sharon Crescent sent me some patterns she got from her friend who owns Sublime Stitching. Sharon hand dyes silk and cotton thread for her own needlepoint designs and sent some of that as well. She calls herself the Thread Empress because she sells thread all over the world. The pink thread she sent is called "Pink Champagne" two things I really really love. I think she named it that just for me. Right Sharon?
I love the skull pattern. It was so much fun making this skirt, I'd forgotten how addicting embroidery can be. I'll be sporting it at bunco this Thursday.
