I've had my eye on the scarf ("Scrap Wrap") in the Denyse Schmidt Quilts book since I bought it, but I think I've been intimidated by the project. Just a few weeks ago, Blair's beautiful rendition inspired me to give it a go. I must admit to not really reading all the instructions (so impatient, I tell you), so I don't have that full multi-fabric pieced look that she and Blair both got. Still, I enjoyed dipping into my basket of vintage silk scarves that I adore, but never actually 'wear', and the bigger panels of fabric actually worked well for my must-finish-even-though-it's-1am crafting state of mind.
I've been wearing this every day since I made it, despite the warm sun. I really like it. So much that I made another one nearly identical. That one's headed off to a silent auction I mentioned last week, because, um, I ended up keeping two bags instead of just one for myself (shhhh!).
And here you have the 'scarf on neck, babe on hip' look. Adelaide's a bit of a hip hugger at the moment (which I adore, for the record), so there is no mama photo without the babe. How much do you love her hand gesture? Oh and yes, I do think the orange tee is a bit overkill, but it was what I happened to have on (orange all around me these days - could orange be my new green? Hmmn.), and certainly there was nothing else clean to be found. Gotta get to that laundry one of these days. But probably not.
