Alice, what a beautiful name. I was pleased to find her among my ancestors in our family tree – Alice May Welch, sister of my grandfather Harold, and of Marjorie. I do love to bring my family members, to life again in this way.
I've had this color-block design in the wings for a few months – since it was graciously declined by the publication to which I had submitted. By that time I had already worked up the prototype to ensure that, if accepted, any related deadlines would be less stressful, and her styling would be just as I imagined. Recently with autumn in the air (at least in my locale) she came to mind and yesterday I posted the pattern to ravelry. I'm so happy to see my ravelry friends giving her thumbs up. Things have a way of working out... as they should? Yes, I think so.
