Lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer

Wish we could move FMS to this lovely spot.
ah well...but we're bringing a bit of summer to the mill.

We have some absolutely stunning semi sheer cottons
and silk/cottons blends from Italy and France that will
make you feel cool and elegant.

I've been searching for the perfect pattern
for these fabrics and think I've found it in this one
called "Roxanne" from
Victory Patterns:
I love this

Also good for flowy summer tops, skirts and
sundresses are these rayon batiks.  They have a beautiful "drape"
with enough body to make you feel secure in your clothes
(you know what I mean...not too super model-ish)
Amazingly talented artist and friend of FMS,
Kim Moran Weineck was one of the first in to
check out the much anticipated "Briar Rose"
from Heather Ross.  I think her daughters will be
twirling about in some adorable dresses soon.
If you'd like to learn more about Heather Ross check out
her website and blog:

Just in...
"Johanne" from Plymouth Yarns.
Yummy, hand-dyed, single-ply yarn.  Delicious colors!
This DK weight, soft wool and mohair blend.

New colors in "Gina"
Fabulous, self striping, worsted weight
wool yarn.  If you love Noro's "Kureyon'
you'll love this.

Also from Plymouth:
It's a mohair/merino/nylon blend sock yarn.
Cool and comfortable in the summer, and cozy
and warm in the winter.
 It's even machine washable!

We've lots of new things in the store to keep you busy through the summer.
Hope top see you all soon!

Keep Cool!!!!
