Quick--easy--awesome--scarves as gifts!

SO, I've been a bad blogger of late and had so much to tell you, but then I figured no actually cared about our Halloween costumes any more, so I'll spare you the details.


Moving on!! I saw this tutorial on One Flew Over, and thought it looked like a quick and easy project and I was right! I made 7 scarves yesterday! I love them! I've already got plans to get some more linen, since I've used all I bought yesterday!! Great way to use up those scraps! Most are Kaffe Fasset, but a couple are Amy Butler scraps--don't know which I like better, but these seem the perfect pay-it-forward prize that I need to be getting in the mail!!


I also made a scarf out of vintage hankies that I'm giving away! Six of the vintage hankies that I won in Rosamund's giveaway last month went in to this delicate, lightweight beauty! Just leave me a comment to win! I'll draw a name on Wednesday, December 2nd and get it shipped to you in time for you to re-gift it for the holidays!!!(Of, course you could keep it all to yourself!)

My awesome husband just made me a custom sewing table that I'll be showing off as soon as I get it painted! I am so thankful to have a husband who not only loves and cares for us, but who gets excited at the prospect of making ME a sewing table! Coolest feeling in the world--and no amount of money could have gotten me a more perfect sewing table!
