Here it is--the official start to summer! Break out the white shoes, ladies, because it's finally proper to wear them again. Okay, seriously, how many people do you think still follow that "rule"? I'm not sure I really understand fashion anymore anyway. My friends who closely monitor the trends tell me that being too "matchy-matchy" by doing things like wearing shoes and carrying a bag that match or even wearing shoes that match one's clothing are no nos. But you can't clash, of course. You'd think that being able to chose several different elements that go together but aren't the same would be second nature to quilters, wouldn't you? Well, maybe it is. But I find it's much simpler to dress in black slacks and shoes and a top of some color--any color really, because everything goes with black--and head out the door to the office. Not having to make many decisions on weekday mornings allows me to sleep a little bit later.
But I digress.
What I really wanted to do on this holiday is have a little giveaway. I have another Schnibbles pattern that looks quite patriotic and summery in the fabrics shown on the cover, so I thought it would be a good one to share with some lucky winner. It's called Recess.
If you'd like an opportunity to win, tell me what you've been doing on this Memorial Day weekend, and I'll put you into the drawing. I'll draw a winner Tuesday night and announce the winner on my Wednesday blog post. Good luck!
