What does a vegetarian get her carnivore husband for Valentine's Day?
Heart shaped meat of course!
I would typically encourage him to eat!!!
The next two weeks are going to be super busy here for miss Cheeky Green, so I'm going to try to get in a quick "holiday" post.
I'm still working on a scarf order, in shades of blue, for delivery this week...not knowing exactly what she'd like, thought I'd make several for her to choose from (because after all, it's just time, right?)- this is the latest:
You can't see in the pictures but there is actually a silver yarn draped throughout which gives this scarf a touch of bling - 'cuz every gall needs a touch of bling.
I took a time-out from the "blues" and did a silvery purple scarf just for fun - well, hopefully not just for fun, for sale!
I laid the silver embellished yarn out in rows and left some hanging from the ends to form a fringe....the pictures don't show the sheen of the silk or the embellishments...it's really much prettier in person - sigh.....
I discovered a new favorite "felting" tool:
My flat iron!!!
While I already knew the wonders this tool could work on my unruly mop, I didn't realize what a dream it would be for folding over the edges of the silk. Why do I want to fold over the edges you ask? Because it's either that or hem them...and hemming silk is, well, let's just say, I'd rather have my wisdom teeth pulled with no meds.
Well, another scarf awaits me. Until we meet again....
