It’s super hard to get into spring-y feelings this morning. It snowed all night and a fine snow is still falling. However, we don’t have much snow on the ground, six inches or so. Six inches of snow is better than 24, so I’ll take it without complaining.
I have my smiling Little Darling, Lucy, here to help bring back some feelings of spring. She is wearing the most (one of them, anyway) beautiful floral prints in a unique color palette. Instead of green for the greenery, it is in medium grey. The background isn’t white, ivory, or ecru. It is the color of whipping cream! The roses are in cool rosy tones with muted violet blossoms. The blossoms, stems, and leaves make up bouquets scattered randomly on this Japanese cotton fabric.
Isn’t this a beautiful print?
Lucy’s dress has English cotton Cluny lace snugged underneath a skirt tuck. The waistline sash is in rosy colored satin ribbon.
Muted lavender works perfectly for the sweater. The elbow length wool cardigan has delicate lace panels down the center back, sleeves, and along the front edges. I’ve embroidered floral motifs in an asymmetrical composition amongst the lace panels.
Lucy wears a crocheted cap made out of white bamboo thread. It is decorated with a crocheted mohair/silk rose, satin bow, and glass leaf bead. What a pretty girl!
Lucy’s accessories include a bouquet, bracelet, and tights.
“Rosies and Lavender” will be available tonight (March 13, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
