I have been filing today (there is something about spring and tax time that gets me in the mood to throw away paper). One of the files I cleaned out was my Sense & Sensibility forum file. When I was still on the board I had a habit of printing out threads or single entries that I thought particularly interesting or that I thought I might want to reference later on.
While I was going through them I noticed that most of the most interesting, helpful, informative, etc comments where by Jennie Chancey, joysdaughter or pinkdiamond. I can honestly say without their words, advice and encouragement I would not have accomplished any of the things in this craft that I’m most proud of. *bows* May I offer a humble thanks to you ladies – I feel so fortunate to have "found" you as you have given me so much!
I also found something that may prove valuable for my Butterfly Dress. From a thread in 2001 where I was asking for advice on using the Lady Maude pattern in Arnold (which is a base for the Butterfly -took me a few years to get to that one aye?), Jennie mentioned that when she made it up she inserted a casing and some elastic at the shoulder. Her comment was that the gown has a tendency to fall off the shoulders otherwise – it exact problem I’m running into. *smile*
I love my life!
