arctic blast 2010

Brrrrrrrr! It's so cold outside in New York today. It's nice just staying in and working from home. Lately, I've been enjoying starting my day by sketching. I have to say, it's been awhile since I've done much sketching (other than rough, little doodles), and I'm loving it! It's quite a nice change from being hunched over a sewing machine all day.

PS Nicole: That's one of your lace swatches in the bottom! Your dress is going to be amazing! I can't wait to do it! :)

PPS to everyone else: I'm selling off some of these sketches on my Etsy page now.

Love it! Just snapped up your two sketches on Etsy - I'm so excited to have original Leanne sketches. Can't wait to hang them on the wall of my office @ work so that I can be inspired to get the heck out of there and into a fashion-related field!! :)

Thanks so much, Melanie!
I'm honored to have them on your wall as your inspiration and motivation.
Those will be sent today. Happy Holidays! :)

Lovelovelove seeing the illustrations your pieces are based on. So much so that I blogged one of them yesterday!

And there are these, too, from past collections:

Sure puts Portland's 'winter blasts' into perspective, doesn't it? Always cracks me up when the local TV stations go all ape for a little ice and a few inches of snow. Next to the Northeast, they have nothing to whine about... AND there's no using studded tires there.
