Ready for winter

K was home from school again yesterday, so instead of starting on the Playing Again quilt I made my version of the Doily Scarf from Handmade Home. It's done in soft felted wool suiting backed with thrifted vintage cotton (anyone recognize it from another project?) and uses doilies that I purchased at the Reuzit Shop in Lancaster for this specific purpose. It was both great fun and really easy to make and I love its fresh, unusual design. Although this one is red and green I will probably not just wear it at Christmas, and I will likely make at least one more to give as a gift.


  1. Is that from your summer pajamas? It is very pretty!

  2. Good eye! It is the fabric from my summer jammies, which I couldn't bear to put away so they're still hanging from my bedroom door. I'm so glad I get to wear it in winter too!
