Scarf # 2, linen and silk, in the classic plaid, a soft, textured scarf. I'm always attracted to this simple design plan, and the scale of the checks. Indigo and linen, or natural silk, in a Swedish lace weave,
called myggtjall, or mosquito, is a traditional curtain weave.
At mid-July I feel Christmas barreling towards me, and I know already that I am not ready, nor will I be ready for it. As a storekeeper I feel responsible to create holiday magic, and fulfill desires of children and teenagers, and parents, and spouses, rich uncles and young marrieds. "I've no idea what they would like, they're young, they're very stylish." "What can we get for someone who has everything?" "What is there for my husband?"
I do love to keep store, so I'll just do what I can not to disappoint the hopes I see when the Christmas customers come in the door. Maybe a little birch tree will be pretty this year for Christmas. With strands of butter paper origami box lights. And garlands of milkweed pods. There now, that's better.
