I Wish It Was Mine!

Yesterday, we all had a great day at Robin's sewing (not really - I didn't do a stitch). Robin looked after us with lots of coffee and great food.
Also, we had Lyn along, with great fabrics for sale at $4 a fat-quarter - a great price here and also the yummiest repros you could ever see. She also had wonderful Kaffe Fassett and Amy Butler fabrics, so the girls went a bit crazy! Lyn is just delightful and I can see another person joining our Creative Threads - she blended in beautifully with us all.

I really have to make today's posting about the most beautiful scarf I have ever seen. It belongs to Lyn, but I just had to wear it for a pic. It is by Sophie Digard a French designer and made by ladies in Madagascar. It takes the ladies three weeks to make one scarf and each motif is of a different colour combination. The thread is so fine it is like sewing cotton, but has the feel of fine soft wool. It would be interesting to know what they have used.
Hope you enjoy this beauty - 'bye for now!
