My DH has surprised me today for our anniversary with a copy of MADELEINE VIONNET by Betty Kirke. I am salivating. He wanted to bring it on our weekend vacation trip, but he wasn’t confident about the trunk space in our teeny convertible. I am so touched that he thought to get me a SEWING present.
Has anyone sewn from this amazing book? Please tell me your stories, because I have a length of grape purple silk velvet I’ve had for years that MUST become a Vionnet reproduction.
(Grinning, both about Madame and about 10 wonderful years of marriage)
Oh, and PS – I got him a great new planer that he wanted after reading the review in Fine Woodworking. For us, work is just something that interferes with our Taunton Hobby Life. Retirement, here we come!
