It’s 50 degrees today in Michigan. WOOOHOOOO!!! Perfect weather for my new, fabulous velveteen and voile scarf.Anna Maria Horner, and ordered more of it than I probably should have from Laura right after we did that velveteen giveaway back in December. It’s bad for me, those fabric giveaways. I see too much that I want. I still have dreams of making some curtains and covering some pillows in this print for our living room, just basic, to really show off the print. The problem with those ideas is that they are a little boring to execute, you know? I dread hemming rectangles, I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep at my machine. I need some little elves ala “Elves and the Shoemaker” to come and finish them up for me at night. This project is rectangles, but no hemming, whee!! Just a little handstitching at the end, I can dig that. Gives me something to do while I watch Battlestar Galactica. OH NOOOOOO! Did I just admit, to the Entire Universe, just how much of a geek I really am? I think I just did. linen and Liberty lawn last fall; this time I made it to AMH’s exact specifications in this post. A walking foot definitely helps keep the layers from sliding around, for sure.
I think the velveteens make a lovely scarf for spring when paired with the voile, not too warm, but still really cosy. Quick check of sponsor fabric shops: Charmstitch, Pink Castle, and Fabricworm are still carrying a number of the velveteens at the time of this writing if you’re as into these as I am.
