They are all lovely but the new white/ off white is particularly lovely,  
especially the pearlised( it looks pearlised to me ) thread for the  
embroidery.

Thank you, Claire.

Yes, I think you could call the thread pearlised, it shifts from  
glints of clear/white to green to pink and back again.  I gulped at  
the price, $17 for one 780 yard spool, but I had a 40% off coupon so  
I decided to go for it.   I tried to use that thread for the  
buttonholes too, but it just kept breaking. The buttons were $3.00  
each!  DS is worth it. <3

I'll use the rest of the thread for more dragonfly wings.  ;-D

Yes, Claire, the white one is the best, I think. I didn't notice the  
mother-of-pearl effect until you pointed it out. Wonderful! I guess if I had  
an embroidery machine, I'd have been busy making snowflakes all of last year  
and this year I'd have had to make those Klimt-like patterns that are used  
in a girls' TV show called 'Mia and me'. All for DD... How fortunate that I  
don't own a fortune. ;-)

Thanks, I'm pretty sure she will like it.

DS called yesterday to suggest that we discontinue our annual gift  
exchange (!), I told her she was too late, I already had one in  
hand.   I may decide to start gifting her on our birthday, instead.

If I ever get an embroidery machine, you will be my inspiration.  I'm feeling particularly jealous of your sister right now as I'm sitting at my computer shivering.

They are lovely, and just suit your sister rather well. But she looks so  
incredibly frail... Is she OK? I mean, apart from obviously being old with  
all the joys and pains that normally go along with it.

Hard to go wrong, when one replicates a favorite garment for  
someone.

My sister is 6 *minutes* younger than I.  :-O

She has health issues.  That is one of the reasons I make things for  
her in order to make her life a little easier.  Private e-mail to

Replied to your private mail yesterday but am not sure if my mail went  
through. Maybe just give me a short notice that it arrived?

That's absolutely fine, Beverly, I was just not sure if I had replied to the  
proper address. Just take your time, and good luck with your tailoring!
