Chilly Spring Scarf...

 This just looks like Spring!  Our weather has been more like a very chilly Spring than it has winter.  Our temps are in the low 60's for daytime highs and to me that is cold!  I like it in the mid 80's.  This scarf is another of those that hugs your neck so cozy and feels wonderful with the fine Italian yarns I used.
 For the closure I crocheted a buttonhole and then sewed a shank button onto the back of the flower.  I like to use a pretty vintage button for the  closure just in case anyone sees it or asks about the closure.
 Here is a photo of the back when buttoned.  I like the pop of the bright pink and this is the year of neon accessories according to all the fashion buzz...which I truly never follow for myself.  I am more traditional.
A fresh breath of Spring right here to be worn and ward off that chill that is still in the air.
It feels good to complete another creative project.  I also have some beautiful yarn pieces for my ORT jar.  I wouldn't consider these pieces "Old Raggedy Threads" however they will make a beautiful addition to another creative adventure using all those thread scraps.
What are you creating in this Leap Year?  I am so thankful to have the extra day to play as it feels so good.
Blissful Creating...

  2. I'm a leaping high this year for great creative creations. Today I'd land softly as we are getting a huge dump of the fluffy stuff. That gives me extra creative time as travel is not so good so instead I'm leaping for joy here in my playroom.

  14. Good Morning!

    Thank you for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit the other day! It was nice of you to leave that sweet comment.

    I am going to visit your place for a while--see if I can get some "Createology"!! My mind is on a standstill right now!

    Have a wonderful week!

  15. I love the colors on this one!! Very spring like!
    In NJ we have had no winter. One storm in October left a foot and a half of snow. We thought it would be a bad winter, but no. One other snow only, and only a couple of inches! Now, it is 60 degrees outside! It scares me because it is just so weird!
    Have an awesome week!
