Here are the first pieces that I made this morning. I used a very pale blue chiffon scarf that I had had for eons, and some gold metallic thread. I stitched all of the leaves, but only rinsed the Solvy out of a couple and pressed them before I left the house. I was late and I had miles (literally) to swim!While swimming, I began to think of lots more possibilities...hey, I had lots of time and not much else to do but move my arms, kick, and breath! I remembered that I had this brownish chiffon"dog scarf" (that's what my friend Diane and I call the ones that don't sell) that was begging for a new life. So after church tonight, I made these two:
Here's a close-up of the one on the left. I haven't done the fine line cutting on them yet, but you get the general idea.
What's great about this mindless stitching is that I can crank up "Eat Pray Love" on my ipod and catch up on Liz Gordon's life........"we've" just left India!
Now for those of you who don't "get" the whole Solvy thing, here's a recent cartoon out of the New Yorker that you might enjoy:
Oh, I hope you can read it!
Now I'm off to watch the World Series. I am so torn in this one. I cut my baseball teeth on the Red Sox and I'm so glad that they've made it back into the Series again, but now as an adult living in the Atlanta area, I feel major, major obligations to the National League and the Rockies. What's a girl to do? I think I'll just enjoy the last of the season, watch this year's creme de la creme play and not worry about rooting for either team!
