Where Did Spring Go?

Yesterday I saw the first robins of spring. I was so excited! It's been a long snowy winter here and we're all ready for spring. Unfortunately this is what we woke up to today. As I write the snow continues to fall outside. While I hoped to be putting away winter hats and scarves until next year instead we'll be using them a little longer. So here is a show and tell of the scarf I made for Nature Girl this year.

I was inspired last winter to create a scarf after I saw a beautiful scarf made from sweaters and tweed jackets on a mom at the children's museum. I created the scarf on the left for myself from fabric scraps and thrifted wool pieces. I used fleece for the back of my scarf. It's warm comfortable and unique. I love it! This fall I created the scarf on the right for Nature Girl. I even got her to model it this morning. Yes she'd still in her pajamas and her hair hasn't been brushed.

While we love our handmade scarves let's hope the snow melts and the robins return soon. Come back spring!

Lovely scarves! I really like the idea of using fabric scraps and pieces of sweaters, etc. Your little Nature Girl is an adorable model! I hope the snow melts very soon and some Spring weather comes your way.

Wow that's a lot of snow! I won't tell you what the weather's been like here in California.

Sending warm, spring thoughts your way. :)
