As the Year comes to an End....

... I always feel the urge of finishing some of my
unfinished projects.
It's like de-cluttering the house around this time of year,
starting the new year on a clean slate!
Well, at least I have good intentions,
I have not made it to the de-cluttering part yet;)

I have been working on this scarf off and on since the early fall
and I really wanted it finished before cold weather hits.
Looks like I got it done just in time before our first good 
and measurable snowfall this week.
The pattern for the scarf is from the 
Ravelry website.
 The flower band is my own creation.
I'm not a huge fan of something tight around my neck,
but I still wanted the scarf look finished without the 
bulky knot.
  So I crocheted a small band which ties around the scarf 
and is held together by a bottom in the back.
 Finished of with a crocheted flower and a pretty bottom 
to add a little bling to the scarf.
The flower-band can be easily adjusted, 
up or down.
After seeing them everywhere,
I just had to try one myself.
"Owl Hats"!
I know Christmas is over but I wanted to share one more 
Christmas card with you all.
Made for my sons girlfriend, 
she is a huge "Hello Kitty" fan!
Kitty and Santa hat are cut with the 
"Doodlecharms" Cricut cartridge.

And yes, as this years comes to an end
I would like to thank each and everyone of you
for following my blog, leaving wonderful comments,
sharing your creativity and 
being such a great inspiration to me.
Thank you!
To all of you
Prosperous, Healthy and Creative New Year!

  4. Beautiful scarf and I love the band that wraps around it! So pretty!!

  5. How very clever of you to create the scarf band... I love it!! I can see you making them into cuffs, too, as the texture of the crocheted piece with the accent of a flower with pretty button in the center would be adorable!!

  6. What a beautiful scarf and I do love the band you made for it, genius!!!
    And that owl hat well I think I may need to learn to crochet!
