Sometimes a breeze is needed to gently tousle the model’s hair.  That’s when a fan comes in handy.  The model is wearing Nancy Zieman’s “Quilting for Texture” project.  The garment features flawless allover embroidery.  Be sure to check it out in the current issue.

    I believe it’s #90 in the beach tote. I really liked seeing a new cover this time. There are so many ways to use embroidery that you don’t need a human model all the time. Thanks!

    I would say the January issue, a couple of towels, sunglasses, some change for the drink machine, a snack of some kind, lip balm, sun visor and some sun screen and you are ready for a wonderful summer day.
