Today was another beautiful Spring day and with the sunshine came all sorts of ideas for my wool coat embellishments. Flowers, birds, leaves, grass, even dragonflies. I know it's a bit early for dragonflies but so many people like them that I think I need to put them on my coats.
I hit a couple of Value World stores after work in search of more coats. Have you ever taken a road you don't usually take and then when you're stuck in traffic, remember WHY it is that you don't take that road???? Yep, that was me tonight.
I did find one new coat but it doesn't have a size tag so I'm guessing it's about a size 16. I'll need to find someone who normally wears that size and have them try it on. I took it straight to the cleaners for the usual $1.99 cleaning and will pick it back up tomorrow.
I think larger sized coats need larger scale embellishments than smaller sized coats. Right?
Anyhow, I'm sketching designs tonight. I think it's better to have a basic plan from which to needlefelt from and this will help with deciding on scale and color. Love those colored pencils!
