Another Pink Scarf...


In my sorting of supplies I unearthed a bag of yarns I had purchased at a specialty shop last Winter in Bakersfield while Mr. C was working.  I didn't find any pink yarn however I did have some lovely pastel Italian yarn remaining from making a scarf last year.  Hmmm...I also had a brand new skein of dusty rose yarn that somehow fell into my shopping cart one day a few weeks ago.  So on the worktable were the two yarns and a crochet hook.  I introduced them and a lovely dance ensued...yarn over, hook through, yarn stitched...and so it went.


Here is the result.  Another pink scarf for the cause.  This might be one of my favorites so far.


Here is the same scarf in less light which more closely shows the dusty rose coloring.  I can only hope and pray that the recipient of this scarf knows that I put peace and hope and joy into each stitch.  Someone asked how many scarves have been donated and I do not know.  It must be a lot with so many kind and generous people making them after seeing a post here or there.
As I type we are having rain and hail.  Snow is still predicted for us later today.  It rained all night with a good steady amount so we should have some good news for our water table.  Our region had the smallest amount of rain since something like 1920 for January and February.  That is a record we do not need to hold.  I am enjoying the rain as I do not have to go out today.  It is also helping to wash off some pollen that covers everything in yellow this time of year.
I feel blessed to be able to sit here at my computer and enjoy reading blogs I follow.  I must admit that I am limiting myself more and more to spend less time wandering the world of blogs and internet sites.  I find I am able to accomplish more with less time on the computer.  Hmmm...
I also feel blessed that I can be in my sewing room and studio creating and finishing up some projects.  I continue to ponder my path of creativity.  What do I really enjoy making or doing?  Why am I doing something?  Is it benefiting anything or anyone?  Am I just wandering aimlessly through my days?  Maybe I am maturing?  Oh heavens no...my little girl still loves to twirl and I have a lot of joy still to experience!
After all...My Heart is Happy because I am Creative.
May Creative Joy Fill Your Heart...

  16. What a FANTASTIC sort of scarf! I love it because it hugs the essential area, for me at least...that part of your neck that is exposed from the coat! It serves as a super necklace as well!

    Thank you creative soul, for coming to visit! Have a fun day making something lovely. Anita

  22. Another lovely scarf! I often ask myself the same thing ... what am I accomplishing in my day that is truly worthy? What is my purpose? Should I be doing more? I should be limiting my computer time as I really need to clean but cleaning house is my least favorite thing to do. Have a wonderful day. Tammy
