What else could come from Holland other than tulips??? Well, actually...lots of things...cheese!...as a matter of fact, I've been living here for 6 years and I haven't seen one tulip field! hahaha maybe because I live in the south and here there are asparagus fields (YUM!) but no tulips... only the ones I have in my garden and every year the mice/moles/neighbours?? steal.
So, I made my own tulips. Warm, woolly tulips.
A new version of the "Sketched flowers" scarf in purples and lilas that I made a while ago (and now is on its way to a very smart girl studying at Princeton),
This new one is just black and white with a few silky strands. It is much longer and in a way sober. There are no beads in this one because I thought that a simple black and white scarf is good for night and day... so here:
Today was a lovely day here. Sunny and very autumny... lovely. I got a chance to use my new creamy/silky scarf. I found my loom (which I brought all the way from Argentina), so I've been busy trying to remember how was it that it works... I love weaving... love the texture...but it takes soooo much time. Measuring and cutting each thread, putting it in the loom...one by one... and there are ussually more than 70! Tieing them up, rolling them up and if it all went well... then you start weaving... it takes a whole day for a long scarf.... or maybe I just need to get used to it again. But it explains why ussually they are so expensive.
This was going to be my On my desk wednesday pic, although I spent wednesday preparing a huge order of cards (more on that later!):
That is beautiful creamy yarn (brought from Argentina as well... 100% wool!) and just strands of silk I ussually use for wet felting, this time I weaved them...
Well, tomorrow is friday... and my 6th wedding anniversary... *I hope we get to go out!!! PLEASE!*
So, we'll see you in the weekend!
