I made a bunch of snowflakes to add into a lot of my Christmas cards this past Christmas. One of my friends, Barbara from church, asked if I would make some more for her to have for this year. So I made up a bunch of her. They are made of Aunt Lydia's thread in white and soaked in a glue/water solution and allowed to dry flat. That stiffens them up to be hard and flat and I added a ribbon for hanging. It was a nice restarting project for me to work with thread - I had not done thread work in a while and I am so enjoying it again!
And this is my version of the Jazzie Skinny Scarf. The pattern is super easy and can be found at:
Jazzie Skinny Scarf
I made this scarf with the most delicious 100% cashmere recycled yarn. I purchased it at this etsy shop - she has stunning yarns! All made from recycled clothes and they are all beautiful to work with. I didn't want to even remove the yarn from the wrapper - just wanted to hold it to my cheek -it is so so so so so soft!!!

This first view is on my new (well recycled from a friend) mannequin! She is so helping me with displaying things for pictures! You should be able to see the whole scarf. Just a few inches short of 10 feet long! I made it for my Heart Sister - Martha - she is very very tall!
The second view is a close up of the scarf so you can see the pattern better - it was very easy and worked up very fast!
