To help Away the Mundane and usher in a wonderful weekend, come adventuring with Queenie in Swoonibles…
Swoonible: adjective (Queenie Speak) An inanimate object that elicits feels of overwhelming joy and happiness. Exclamations such as “YUMMY!” and “Mercy Me Oh My!” are often heard around Swoonibles.
Two Swoonibles for Queenie are silk fabric and lacy trims.
From time to time the old costumer in me bubbles forth and the original, one of a kindness of the craft must unite with swoonibles. There is a small chain of fabric stores in the Arizona simply called SAS where Queenie goes to exercise and at times exorcise the old costumer within.
While surrounded in a world swirling in all sorts and manors of fabrics and notions Queenie adventured back in time and focused on collecting swoonibles to create a beautiful Victoriana style piano shawl.
Queenie found a YUMMY! embroidered silk organza the color of a soft blush with a scattering of pink and maroon flowers.
Nothing catches the light and handles like silk organza.
Mercy Me Oh My!
A bevy of little scientists squirreled away in laboratories have given it the old college try but nothing beats those little silk worms.
Queenie paired two YUMMY! trims, to create the look of the lush deep fringe that is characteristic of piano shawls
Though I’ve only worn this swoonible shawl once… Queenie is sure there will be other royal occasions for its appearance be it an opening gala or royal audience at the hermoso castillo.
Until then, it is prominently hung in my studio where Queenie can gaze fondly and with the joy of having, exclamations of YUMMY! and Mercy Me Oh My! are often heard.
