I had a fun idea this week to make a thought bubble hairband with chalk fabric so you can change out the words! It makes me smile each time I look at it and wonder what people will use it to say. I think it makes a great tool as well for teachers and/or parents to help their kids understand that people have different thoughts. This is a super important revelation for both kids and adults. Once a person understands that we can’t read each other’s minds and that thoughts need to be asked about and/or expressed to others they have learned a valuable life lesson which will serve them in sooooo many ways.
Ok, so this scarf has been completed for at least a month but I kept holding out for a day with sun when my hubby could take a photo for me! Alas…it never materialized so I finally ran out to the yard and just took some mediocre photos since the season for thinking about scarves has pretty much past. No, I don’t own a tripod…
I purchased this beautiful pattern on Etsy because I’m always looking for new crochet skills and I was super curious how she designed the flowers into a mesh style pattern. I have a tattered scarf I bought 17 years ago in Estonia with a similar mesh and I have loved it to death. This pattern was super clear and I enjoyed learning the new skill. The flowers turned out lovely and I’m thrilled to have crocheted my first scarf ever for me Notes for the future…I used a worsted weight yarn (which I had in my stash). I think I’d prefer a slightly lighter weight yarn next time. I think it turned out lovely, but I think the mesh and the flowers would look lovely in a sock weight yarn…maybe next time?
I‘ve also sewed a few more marble maze quiet toys. These cotton faced puzzle piece marble mazes are one of a kind toys. I’m using small pieces of fabric and don’t have any more. It’s been fun to play with some different looks and with sewing the different mazes as well!
I had a few leftover “eggs” from Easter sewing so I’m pairing them up and putting them on sale!
