“A Darling’s Choice”

Pink or lilac . . . lilac or pink.  When you simply cannot choose, choose this lovely print.  Pink and lilac are given equal billing on this Japanese cotton fabric with its tiny blossoms.  I love how their done in a washy watercolor style.

Lucy’s light as a feather bolero is hand knit with mohair/silk lace weight yarn.  This is a new style for me.  It has a slightly rounded front edge and a crocheted ruffly edging around the opening.    Embroidered roses are scattered along the neckline in two shades of pink and two shades of lilac.

The crocheted basket holds a tiny bouquet of lilac blossoms tied with a pink ribbon.  A crocheted beaded headband with bow adds a bit of sparkle.  Anklets, lilac panties with a bow, and a beaded bracelet complete this pink and lilac ensemble.

      Hi, Catherine. It is so very nice to hear from you. ❤ Lucy and I say thank you for the compliment! We had a beautiful week, then two cold, rainy days. Today looks like it will be lovely. I hope your Sunday is sunny too.

    I can just picture Lucy sitting on a picnic blanket having a dish of vanilla ice cream on a lazy afternoon while watching the world drift by. Love the pink/lilac and of course, Lucy. Such an adorable outfit.
    We’re headed for a heat wave so will break out the hose and water every day. Know the plants will love me even though I don’t enjoy doing it much. 🙂

      Lucy had better not get any ice cream on her new dress. lol She’s a good girl though; very careful, even when she is having fun. A heat wave sounds great, still chilly here most days. Have a great Sunday!

      Hello, Yolanda! Thank you. I felt like a little change from my usual cardigan style. This one is a combination of my shrug and cardigan pattern. Have a great Sunday!

      Hi Terri, and thank you so much! Lucy is blushing with all of the compliments right now. She’s one of those dolls that looks beautiful in everything… and I think she may know it. I must teach her to always be humble, no matter what. lol I hope you have a beautiful Sunday, Terri! Sending you a virtual hug from Lucy and I.
