The snow has come and still remains, although with a few warm days, it will be gone.... I've been busy making these scarves... I have been buying up skeins of yarns with all kinds of decorative properties for the last, oh, 10 years or so... Not quite knowing what they would find their way into, I bought them because they caught my eye, and I had the faith they would be used for something wonderful. My thought is, when you find it, and it speaks to you, buy it, because you may go back to get it and it will be gone---I've had that happen before...So, a friend of mine gave me some royal blue organza type fabric and I cut a long strip of it, laid a water soluble stabilizer upon it, and stitched these individual strands of yarn the entire length, leaving a "hanging" tassel on each end. When I was satisfied with the amount of yarns that I had sewn down to the base layer, I soaked the entire piece in water to eliminate the stabilizer. When dry, I sewed it right sides together the entire length, creating a tube with all the decorative yarns on the inside. I then turned it right side out, and there it was!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
