Snow and the Charmeuse Chemise

this was my view out my sewing room window yesterday morning

a few grazing deer would have made it perfect, eh?
we had an extremely slippery walk with the hound, along the icey cart paths at the golf course. after about a half mail, i cried uncle and prevailed upon my better half to abandon all hopes of finishing the walk. it was bitterly cold, with the winds making the windchill factor close to 0, so we turned around and headed home, thankful for no frostbitten digits and/or broken hips.

this is the silk charmeuse chemise that i finished on thursday afternoon

you may recall it in a previous life here
i was not happy with it, and thought i could perhaps do better adding another layer of midnight blue. i'm very pleased that i took the leap!

here's a view of the back
hope you are either staying warm or cool, depending upon what corner of the world you reside in..........i hate ending sentences with prepositions, but so be it! it is a rip-roaring 29.5 F here now at 1:30 PM YIKES!!!

peace

...not happy with it? Did you go out with nothing else on? I can't think of any other reason.

Gorgeous chemise! I love the visual texture you are creating with the shibori. Keep warm and toasty!

I like the chemise Judy. Read your earlier post about not being able to sleep. I went to bed at 11.30 pm. Got up because I couldn't sleep. It is 1.12am. Thanks for stopping by. BTW, I received your two comments.
