The Latest News… February 2017 5


February 7th marked the 150th birthday of Laura Ingalls Wilder (and February 13th marked the 160th birthday of her husband Almanzo).  To take a little time to remember my childhood hero’s special birthday I temporarily set aside a couple of upcoming Renaissance projects, re-read “The Long Winter” (my favorite book of the Little House Series), and began drafting a couple of new patterns designed to complement the story.   If you have been following my Facebook posts, you undoubtedly have been seeing the sneak peaks of my “Long Winter” coat and hood set as well as my bright red “Under Flannels” (more commonly know today as a union suit).  I have bigger plans for these “Long Winter” projects, but in the meantime they will be showing up on Pixie Faire in the next few weeks as individual patterns.

    Thanks so much for the great patterns. I made a new outfit for Kirsten using your Prairie Rose pattern to remember Laura! Looking forward to the new ones.

    Congratulations to Dinah, Rebecca, Michelle, Penny and Victoria and a huge thanks to you, Shari, for the amazing Mary & Laura & Carrie patterns that I received today. They are simply beautiful works of art and I enjoyed sharing the history included on the inside covers w/my hubby, especially the fact that Carrie’s husband and step-son were involved with Mount Rushmore. We visited there in 2007 and he took many photos; now we’ll be sure to look for Harold’s name if we make it back there again. I too enjoyed all the comments that were left commemorating Laura’s birthday last month.
