Throw a catchy tune my way and my brain doesn’t stand a chance.
I’ll be singing it over and over the livelong day – against my will even.
Perhaps this has happened to you…

Lime. Aqua. SING IT!!!

I can’t get away from it – it’s been a lifelong attraction on clothing I’ve made and worn. One of my favorite dresses I ever made back in the day when I was trying to SEW all my wardrobe instead of KNIT IT was a turquoise dress trimmed in lime green piping…

and… Have MERCY! I’ve been inspired by a purse…

AGAIN…

If you recall this missive’s March 9th entry, I was overcome by a desire to couple Brown and PINK because of the way Jana Feifer used them together on her initial series bags.

Well she’s playing MY TUNE again -

Just in time for those Lazy, CRAZY days of Summer, a wonderful, outrageous, not-for-everybody cup-O-Iced-Green-Tea with a Sprig of Mint…

Or a garden of luscious tropical foliage and sky…

=================================

TRELLIS
noun [C] : a light frame made of bars of wood or metal crossed over each other, fixed to a wall for plants to grow up.

At first, I was calling this design “Arbor” because of the color being so evocative of my love of trees. When I drive up to Michigan to see the Familials, there are miles and miles of Forest Preserves and the undulating greeness of it all makes the miles (300) fly by.

But something I’ve decided to try on the front of this piece demanded a change in the look of the back.What you see is a Trellis – angled lace that emanates from a center stitch and travels to each side edge.

If all goes well and I’m, well, just plain lucky, something this way grows…
