Holly Makes a Brief Appearance...

We interrupt the progress on October's BJP, to bring you this unexpected and brief appearance of Miss Holly Golightly.

The last time we saw Holly she was peering in Tiffany's window, the famed jewelry store where she is known to frequent. Unsuspecting at the time, Miss Golightly was being cast to appear in a crazy quilt block which will premiere on this blog in the next few months.

Though we all adored her in the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Miss Golightly wants to make it clear that her performance in Mr. Truman's Capote's short novella was more true to her nature and character. Afterall, she never really loved Fred from upstairs, she had just taken a fleeting fancy to him...and he came in quite handy on occasion...The movie implies that there was a lot more between them than there was...just so you know.

Many of you are aware that it has taken quite some time to make this appearance happen. In fact, just moments ago, Miss Golightly was in pieces over thought of appearing before all of you without her makeup, her jewelry and her sunglasses.


Luckily, Miss Golightly pulled herself together to make this brief appearance on this block.


She has only come here today to see how much space she will be taking up so that the rest of the seam treatments can be planned around her. After all, this is no place for a glamorous, New York socialite. There's still lots of work to do before her big debut!

Stay tuned...

This one's going to be fun to watch, Susan! Love the background, it's perfect, especially the embroidered hanky.

What a great job coming up with Holly's figure. It sort of reminds me of a paper doll (one of my favorite things).
