My friend rang tonight to say that Mavis has arrived and fits. Phew. She also said that she likes it very much. She said that her friend Laurie had admired it, which pleased me enormously because Laurie is French and perhaps I should have more national pride, but getting praise about clothes from a Frenchwoman is somehow more reassuring than getting praise from anyone else.

I'm with you about the French/clothes taste thing. Definitely high praise :) I'm glad it turned out so well!

Hi Helen,

Thak you so much for for your supportive comment. Yes, I was brave about the sleeves, but after doing it, it wasn't that big a deal, just fussy.

You are so right abut the French. Lovely scarf by the way.

I just had to respond to your comment on my wheel -- I was getting a little bit worried, too!! :)
