theres nothing like cozy weather to make you want to get all crafty-like. i had this idea for a cozy, quilty scarf while up with banjo one middle-of-the-night recently. middle of the night is a good time for crafty ideas, i tell ya!
scarves are the best, and you can see how to make one yourself...along with a vedy, vedy simple pom-pom scarf over here at todays mama.
i've finally braved-up to start using favourite fabrics stashed for years...and, gulp, am really obsessed with quilting! (the gulp is because i hate to admit this...as i know my mother is on the other side of the world saying "told you so!" as she reads...she is a big-time quilter and tried to get me into it for years. because she wanted me to, i stubbornly refused!). you may or may not recall my first attempt at making a quilt - almost a year ago now. i had mum show me the ropes, but due to my inability to be a good student she got frustrated with me and finished the quilt herself (thanks, mum!). a few months ago i found this fabric and HAD TO BUY IT, could only afford a small piece so i planned a simple quilt (figuring things out for myself this time - easier for me to learn that way) for mr banjo. i LOVE IT and you can read all about how i did it with step-outs HERE.
are you a quilter?
have you made anything cozy lately?
