Cashmere Peekaboo!

Unless you 've been hijacked by aliens sucking you up into a UFO and spiriting you away to the planet Selvedge, you know that the East coast is in the throws of miserable weather. We have about 9 inches since last night and more to come all tonight and tomorrow. My plans for a wonderful photo shoot out in the snow just didn't work out. I did try. It was blowing sideways and I had to do this close to the house so I could change my accessories. This was the best pic I could get:

The snow is about 2 feet deep behind me. I am standing in a path that just keeps filling up. You can't see my awesome boots but I think you can see this is one awesome coat and its Warm!

So right now, with this nasty weather, this pic is the best selfie I can get . I am going to either take more outside when the weather stops its aggression or stylize the coat on Ms. Dumdum and you can get my drift. I'll have another post shortly with lots of deets and better pics.


Hubby found this on our back porch full of snow yesterday, a delivery from Fabric.com. On the left is a heavy home dec all cotton for a spring/summer jacket and on the right is a fabric that is far far nicer IRL. It is a linen/cotton blend in the color "denim". I tell you, it stinkin' glows and is gorgeous. I am thinking summer jumper/dress a la lagenlook for that one. More to come on these.

Hubby and I are off to the North Shore and New Hampshire for the long weekend. Hopefully the drive won't be too interesting. Take care all and stay safe in the weather.. more on the backside....Bunny

  1. Your coat is MARVELOUS! I adopted many of your sewing/construction tips along the way with my coat. Have a very safe drive!

    1. Thanks, Faye. It looks like we will squeak through between snowstorms just barely. Vermont is infamous for it's lousy road care so that's our only concern. Thanks for your caring.

    2. I love your coat. I don't like snow and we don't get snow, but I really like the idea of being snowed in. I would be allowed to be a hermit.

    3. After a while, usually mid February, being a happy sewing hermit turns into Cabin Fever, not a good thing. I make sure I take lots of Vitamin D to thwart the Fever.

  2. Good luck on the drive! I'm sure you have an emergency kit, and you certainly have one gorgeous warm coat! My son is in CT so I'm always monitoring the weather.

  3. Your coat is beautiful. Enjoy your long weekend. Here in CT I just got about a foot of snow yesterday, 40 degree weather today and more snow for tomorrow. Since winter just doesn't want to quit, I've been sewing my spring/summer wardrobe. It's giving me hope...

    1. That's exactly what those new fabrics are about, Patty. At least I can sew "warm".

  4. What I can see of the coat is gorgeous! Can't wait for full pictures.

    Hope your drive is safe. I'm on the other side of the state, near Buffalo, and luckily this storm is missing us. On the weather the other night we're listed as the second highest US snowfall this year.
    Erie, Pa. was in the lead.

    1. I had only one tiny spot to line up the tripod properly and took lots of pics, most without me even in them. The whole process became a PITB so I gave up.
