Funny you should mention TRIMS, but I just took a field trip Monday to Fishman’s Fabrics (1101 S. Desplaines St) to scope and score some trims for another enchanted project: Tweedy Bird…

After finishing the knitting and most of the hem and button bands on the Bird, I realized a Sea of Tweed was a eyeful of BLAH! This stuff can be DULL as DUST! No wonder the ForeFather/Mother Designers of Old called upon the Braid Goddesses to part with some of their ornamental locks!

So the ForeF/Ms edged their creations with TRIM! Velvet Ribbon, Braided Cord, Fringe, Beads, SOMETHING to take this out of the mediocrity of vision and pop it to ya…

Here is what I came home with…

Enchanting perhaps to my eyes only: Yellow-Green & White Diamond Woven Ribbon

Just guess what this is… It might be my favorite!
