Yet another Christmas present done and gifted. This was given to a friend who admired my first two DS Scrap Wraps I made earlier in the year. Since this was not the first time I mad this scarf it went together very quickly. One thing that I changed was that I made it thinner and longer – 63″ x 5.25″. All the pieces are from my stash which was great and I love the little accent of green mixed in with the primary colors of the turquoise blue and chocolate brown. The best part was that the recipient loved it! I couldn’t have asked for a more enthusiastic response.
No good, bad, and the ugly for this post because really it was just all good. Great instruction, easy to make, wonderful results, fabulous to wear. I can’t say more, except I wish it was mine 🙂
Ok…I am awake after my two nights of late night crafting. Yes…I do have bags under my eyes and a half functioning brain all in the pursuit of craftiness. Addictive craft of choice? Sewing. Given my primary addiction lies with knitting but for a quick fix sewing scratches my itch.
Now I have been wanting to make the Scrap Wrap from the Denise Schmidt Quilts book that I purchased a few months ago but never had the time nor the guts to try. Well, with my new 1/4″ quilting foot and the techniques from the quilting class under my belt, I pumped out two of these babies in two nights.
First one is for my friend V who I will be meeting up with in Santa Fe for our 30th birthdays. Since we leave on Wednesday, her birthday, I had to pump hers out quick
The second one was for me, because we are going to Santa Fe where it is set to be pretty cold while we are there. I have wanted a black scarf for some time but couldn’t bring myself to knit one up. There are just certain colors that just don’t sit with me well when knitting them up, black is one of them. But I am all over black when it comes to sewing. So here is my Japanese version for myself. I love the red accents.
I will try to get some action shots this weekend. We are coming back on Sunday…WHICH IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!! 5 more days to 30th Birthday too
Happy Birthday to me…Happy Birthday to me…. ok guess I am jumping the gun a little…
