Truly, it is....

Rows and rows of fabric... quaint and quirky shop owners, who are so helpful they are unforgettable...

Joy, at sudden discovery.

Seeing one's companions, disappearing between aisles of color, then suddenly popping up again.

It is, truly, a little Heaven on Earth.

News, my friends! Ever so happy news!

No. I haven't finished my book. My heart still awaits the day I can tell you that.

But..... I have been selected as one of the five finalists for the Christa-Taylor Design Your Dream Dress Contest!! How exciting is that?

The final competition all depends on reader votes now. So.... cast your vote! I won't say vote for me, though I'd dearly love you too, because I want you to vote for your honest favorite. Here's the blog page.... Christa-Taylor Blog

And here's my dress... The AVA.

The Ava summer dress, a lightweight creation in a perfect blend of rayon and cotton, hued with the brightest of summer colors, is inspired by the classic silhouette of the 1930’s. The combination of a quaintly fitted waist, a bias cut skirt, and the subtle touch of vintage crocheted lace about the neck and armholes, makes it perfect for that simple summer outing. It includes modestly cut armholes, as well as strap holders to keep you in place.
