I'm not sure what this scarf is made of. It could be wool, but it could be an acrylic too. It is thick, and when I wear it it feels like I'm wearing a blanket. This is another scarf that I could wear more often if it had a set outfit. I think I will try to wear it tomorrow. The weather is so cold that I think I would enjoy something cozy around my shoulders.
As you can see, it is from Italy. I don't remember at all where I got this one from.
We had a wonderful family reunion this weekend! There were grand kids, grand-parents, nieces and nephews, in-laws and friends, and all kinds of siblings. We had our usual chili and cornbread lunch (with all kinds of delicious extras). Instead of playing games, we have started bringing a craft for everyone to participate in. This year was a mosaic on a ceramic tile; every one of them was beautiful.
After the get together, my youngest sister showed me how to do temari. Here's the two of us concentrating together on our work. I will show my finished temari when it's finished, but I wanted to thank my sister for showing me; I've wanted to learn this technique for years. My guild did it one year, but I missed that meeting.
I have to laugh at this picture, a little bit. The two of us were off in our own little world, while there were at least 11 other people and a dog in the room. You can see from the way I'm holding my mouth that I was concentrating. Needlework has been a wonderful past-time for me throughout the years. All I have to do is pick up a needle and I'm in my happy place.
