Embellished Scarves!

My mantra for this upcoming gift-giving season of Christmas is certainly going to include something handmade. I often think strongly about it....do a lot...but, still end up with those last minute gifts I must leave to a quick purchase from the store. By golly, NOT THIS YEAR! I am thinking ahead...making ahead...and stocking up for the season. At this point, the gift can be food...art...or embellished...and my latest project is scarves. I was so excited to find these tartan scarves. They just needed a little embellishment...yea, this is where homemade came in. It only took one college football game on television today to complete three scarves. Just a few scraps of fabric, buttons, ribbon and embroidery thread...voila' scarves that look very similar to my art.
Tell me what you think...
"There is a thin line between love and hate
and that thin line, my friend,
is a scarf."
-quote from a scene in the sitcom "Friends"
