Another Scarf

I fell in love with this gray linen scarf
that I saw on Pinterest.
Not having any linen in my stash,
I did come up with a bit of
gray Wool Flannel.

I stitched a length of it together

and crocheted an edge similar to the original


and for a touch of Christmas,
pinned it with my Pear Tree pin.

Just in time to wear to a sweet
Granddaughters ballet recital
as a Mouse in The Nutcracker!

Red Buffalo Check Scarf

I've had this classic Red Check flannel
fabric in my stash since last winter
(when big checks were popular!)
 I quickly cut and stitched this
scarf in less than five minutes.

Pulling out the threads to make the fringe ~
quite a bit longer!

The Burlap Wreath Gets a Little Christmas On!

You may remember this burlap wreath that I
made in October. I love the simplicity
and country style of it. The burlap 
looks as if it were cut right from the
feed sack! Perfect for those
harvest-y Autumn days
 here at the farm.

Now that Christmas is approaching and the
days are shorter and drab,
I wanted to add just a touch
 of festive color to cheer it
(and me) up! 

I used some plaid wired ribbon
that I already had. I
 made several little 'picks' of
the ribbon fashioned into
loops to mimic the looped
burlap, and fastened here and there.
Then I added a larger gathering
to the center of the burlap bow.

It still wanted something.
I have had this little German Glitter Banner
that I had recieved from Madai at
Wren Cottage a couple of years ago, and
thought it might be just the addition it needed.

The glitter is a bit tarnished with age now
but I think it added just the right touch!
Simple ~ Country 
Just like me! 

Yep! I like it
It brings me a bit of JOY!
