My friend Connie gave me a gift of some "basting thread" knowing I would be making a muslin first and taking out and redoing seams to make it the correct fit. Wash-A-Way is perfect for this kind of thing. It's water soluble, just spritz and it's gone. The problem is, it looks very similar to most threads.
In my dream, I accidentally used this thread to construct the entire gown. My daughter is having a May garden wedding, a beautiful month when the sun shines all the time, but in the dream it rains! And as you might imagine, the dress started to come apart. I was beside myself; the minute I woke up, I went to my studio and tacked the thread in the package on my bulletin board - far away from all other threads.
There's an expression I often hear - "may all your dreams come true". It has taken on a new meaning for me!
I look forward to sharing this new adventure with you. I'll be on the road this week to teach and lecture, hope you have a wonderful week.
