I must say I’m feeling a bit envious of our readers from south of the equator. I know you all are in the throes of summer. Enjoying the warmth of the sun, wearing cute little outfits…and no coats!
While here in the Midwest, we are having our typical unpredictable weather. Last week, Sunday was 70 degrees. Then on Tuesday, we had 6 inches of snow! Ahhh!!! Then some major flooding after that. So, just when I’m ready to dance out in my flip flops, I have to throw on a heavy winter coat, and then find the rain gear. I’m so tired of black, brown, and heavy! I want light and airy! I know we are getting close.
To get through this crazy weather and add a little bit of excitement to my black and brown, I went to my stash (see photo of one miniscule part of said stash). We all have one, whether we admit it or not. Mine just happens to be very large. Should I admit that? Well, anyway, I picked out a couple of really pretty, bright pieces of fabric.
I cut the fabrics into 10″ x 72″ scarves. Next, roll-hem the edges with a contrast thread, loop the finished scarf around your neck and you will look fabulous!
Part of the “look” is in the “looping” this season, not just wrapping the scarf. So, you heard me, loop it around your neck. Fold the scarf in half, toss around your neck, holding the loop in your left hand and the ends in your right hand. Now, tuck the ends through the loop in your left hand. Oh, you are sooo very chic.
Now, I think I can make it to spring and my flip flops.
So, as I long for warmer days, I will not be as envious of those south of the equator. For that matter, you all can get a head start on making fabulous scarves for your cold days ahead! Or, make one in a sheer silk and let it dance in the soft summer breezes.
Burrr…for now and take care,
