Finishing projects

This chenille scarf is so soft and cuddly. It has wonderful texture and the black makes the colors pop. I only wish I had enough warp length to make two scarves and not just the one. The left over warp I wove off to make one or 2 small purses, yet to be assembled. This... Continue Reading →
