And if you are a family member reading this, then quickly; avert your eyes! Now! :D
There is to be one of those Christmas lucky-dips-with-a-strict-budget at the family gathering this year and I racked my brains to come up with a wearable something, both lovely and of high quality as well as handmade. My gift had to be for a girl, and had to suit any one of a range of hair and skin colours; from beautifully grey, to a pale ash blond, to rich chocolate-y black, and to a true strawberry blond. All divine hair colours on their individual heads, and for each of which I would rejoice in choosing just exactly the right colours, if only I knew which fair hand would be the one to pluck out my own little offering...
I spied this absolutely delicious silk chiffon at Fabulous Fabrics, and could buy just enough for a little scarf. With its shades of warm pale pink, blue-y murky green, bronze and with just a little bit of black I reckon it is perfect. It spoke to me a sense of dusky, pastel, subtle and yet warm and rich, all at the same time. What a find!
Simply edged with a rolled hem in black.
And just because this picture below made me smile (seeing Sienna's furry face always does) and just because "finding the dog" is fun...! can you spot her this time?
