Well, it is WOYWW again! One thing that this has done is to force me to post something every week even at times when something that perhaps I wouldn't really think to blog about. I have been dealing with insurance claims so a bit slower start to the week. I am working on scarves for Wendy who needs them for a worth while cause. It is for a show to aid in the NatureConservancy-www.nature.org to help oil affected animals Deadline is Oct. 1st and she would really appreciate if anyone could donate one. SO if you have the time, it would be much appreciated. She is undergoing some chemo with breast cancer, so if you don't hear from her for awhile, be patient as I guess that these can really throw you for a loop. Perhaps even some words of encouragement would be good or a card even if you can't do a scarf. After all, I know you all do cards. LOL . Here is the address that you can send them to:
1901 Canal Dr.
Wilson, NC 27896
I started working on the scarves last night. The quick drawing of the cats was done this morning. It will be my first attempt as doing a silk dye one. I had won the dye and the silk in an earlier post that I blogged about. I have also had the gutta for awhile, so can hardly wait to use it.
I also decided to try my hand at putting some organza strips in a fabric for a scarf. I have had this fabric for a few years. It was suppose to be lining in a jacket or something, but decided on something else instead, so it was available and might as well play with it. Well, it is not an easy task with slippery fabric, so I put it on the long arm machine. sewed one long strip of organza on it with a stablizer on then took it off of the machine and satin stitched the edges on my regular sewing machine and then finally cut away opposite fabrics for the stripe effect. Still have the other side to do and then sew up the edges.
My sister has knitted a couple of scarves, so she will donate them too, so I guess they can be made from what ever materials you would like. I think the only requirement is that it has to be at least 24" on one side and wearable. Hope you can scarf up this oppertunity to help those in need!
