Thank You & Something for Sugar

First of all, thank you all for the love and support you showered me with yesterday.  It’s amazing how uplifting you all are!  I sit all alone and work in my studio day after day, but you all make me feel that I am not really working alone; I feel I am simply in my office which is located in a bigger building.  So, thank you all so very, very much!

Today my Fairyland Pukipuki, Sugar, wants to show you her little something in blue.  It is a tiny dress knit in a tonal baby alpaca/silk lace weight yarn.  I love all of the subtle shades of blue, violet, and pink in this colorway.  I’ve used it before here (Little Darlings), here (Amelia Thimble), and here (Amelia Thimble).  Although I’ve used this yarn a few other times, this is the first dress I’ve made for Sugar with it.  And sadly, it is no longer available, so when my one skein is gone… well, you know… 😦

“Garden of Blues” was finished before “My ‘Blue’-ming Garden” that I showed you yesterday, but Sugar would not agree to let me sell it until now.  I told her that I have another dress for her that I am going to dye in a surprise shade of pink, so she relented.

Sugar enjoyed our photo shoot in the garden very much.  She loves how her dress coordinates with all of the flowers that are blooming now.  Sugar was especially captivated by the lilac phlox.
