birthday gift a year or so ago.  I loved it so much that I made another for my Mom.  She loved hers, too.  I even took some scraps and an old piece of minky backing and got it all ready to sew up to have one myself…but I never got around to sewing it.  In fact, I had forgotten all about it.

That’s probably why I found it earlier this week, still pinned together.

So, even though I haven’t been sewing much lately, I just HAD to finish this scarf.  Right?

Here she is, all warm and super cozy, made entirely with leftovers from other projects.  Beauty from chaos.  I kind of like that!

make!
