Orange Crush

I have a list of blog topics I want to write about and have spent time composing them in my head, getting ready to do the actual writing. And then the doorbell rang, and Jessie handed this skirt to me. This did the hurdles over all the other topics and landed right in first place.

You wouldn't believe how excited I am to own this 100 percent wool orange skirt. No, I am NOT planning to wear it. And I was so excited that the first I did was to take its picture, without even setting it up properly to look its most beautiful. Oh. Did I not need to tell you that? Probably not. Some things are pretty obvious....

The second thing I did was to email the picture to this person, because if anyone will have a a fabulous idea, it will be Karen. It will be washed in hot water and should shrink down and "felt" quite nicely. Then we can make some design decisions. I'm even hoping to incorporate the totally awesome orange leather waistband. Is there anyone out there who also finds this exciting? Any really good ideas?

On this website I liked the idea of the booties/slippers and the needle case

Oh that happens to me all the time, a post making hurdles over the fifteen running in my head. sometimes I think I'm crazy, writing blog posts in my head while I'm at the park with my kids. Glad to know it happen to other people too! Ooh that skirt is great though, that will turn into something really rad.
