Once upon a time (many many times...) I visited dear Vanessa over at Coco Rose Diaries and amongst all her treasures I spotted this scarf. I knew in an instant that I just had to make one for myself. Vanessa's blog is a dream place. A fantasy world of pastels, roses, vintage, colorful crochet creations and adorable must have pottery and dreamy stuff for display and kitchen. Just look at her banner, it says it all... Her posts are sincere and honest and her photography fabulous. I wish I could snap pictures like her...
Mam'Zelle Flo and I got started. Tried out a number of different color schemes but didn't really find any satisfaction until I put together the classic blue, red, white, pink, green theme a la Cath Kidston style.
I've been wearing it non stop since it got finished even though the weather is still warm. It is quite warm as I used wool yarn for it. It will be perfect when weather cools down and autumn approaches.
Boat Quilt. It is finished despite from the personal label. The binding was a bit of a hassel as this little fellow Frankie just wouldn't stay out of the way... I ended up finishing the binding with him on top of the quilt next to the machine...
Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite. See you soon with another VOILA post.
