You Heard It Here First...

Sorry to have been AWOL for so long. Have not been to Michigan yet, but have big news.

Have been so stircken by the design bug and so encouraged by the good response to Cherry that I am starting up my own cottage industry:

Sunflower Designs (what else?)

Have developed eight designs awaiting samples:

You've already seen The canyon vest (renamed Sedona) and the Curried Pumpkin pullover. Additional designs include a short swing jacket with bracelet sleeves, a crew neck cardigan with roses twining down the front, a kimono with Japanese woodblock patterns, a chunky boatneck pullover in a lace pattern gone large, and the piece de resistance, a fabulous knit skirt with cables running down the gored inserts freeform like roots.

Thanks to all who have encouraged me in this new direction. Stay tuned...
