What a great scarf! Although, maybe there needs to be a different word for one like that. It stands in relation to a scarf the same way a tiny fascinator does to a hat - it's worn the same way but doesn't serve the same practical function at all.
I finally opened my enormous package from MamanTattoo yesterday evening, and I get to share all the totally handmade treats she sent.
I have to start with a close-up of the card her two children made for me. You can't see from the photo, but in addition to the googly eyes, beads and sequins, there's even a tiny cork glued on the bottom right corner!
First off, this thick and really beautifully knitted "pixie hat". It's very warm - I pulled it onto my head inside the house and immediately had to take it off because it was too hot! I haven't been able to get an action shot that looks like anything, but I'll try again in the daylight today. And Andréann also included FIVE balls of matching yarn so I can make myself something to go with it. (Like I could ever knit that well!)
And speaking of yarn, how about this ball of hand-spun super-nubbly stuff? It looks huge in this photo, but really it's about the size of an orange. I think it will become decoration on something. But what?
Next I pulled out this leather pouch (reclaimed leather, I think?) with a deer antler button. But what's inside it?
Felted acorn decorations and tiny pinecone people!
But she made not one but TWO pouches. I love the embroidery on this linen wallet. It's filled with beautiful embroidery floss and perle cotton. (I won't upload a photo of it, even though it's luscious, because I'm already clogging this with too many!)
And I've saved the best for last. I had admired the acorn men that MamanT put on her blog last month, so she made two of them and a tiny embroidered yurt for them to live in! This is probably the cutest, cleverest thing I've seen in months. I love it so much! And with them is the tiny baby Sun God from the Pagan nativity scene. (If you haven't seen this you must go to Andréanns blog at once. MamanT, can you post a link to thank page for us?)
Thanks for all this wonderfulness, and I hope your package has arrived safely.
Blessed Yule, everyone!
