I think everyone has seen my Matilda. One of my friends fell in love with it and asked me to put Matilda on a scarf for her.



Obviously it still needs to be ironed, but I think it came out well! I'm not totally sold on the edging, but I felt like it did need something there. Now taking suggestions on other stitches to do on edging in the future.



What it looks like on.



And my dandelions that I actually finished a while ago, but never got around to posting. I love these. I'm seeking out the perfect frame for them so I can hang them up. The middles are all french knots, so I really learned how to do them well on this project!

The Matilda scarf (and you) are adorable, but I agree with the rest...those dandelions are to die for!

I'm setting up some ideas in my head for new kitchen curtains...and I am liking those!

Great job!

Gorgeous work!

I really like the simplicity of the running stitch along the edge of the scarf -- totally appropriate finish for the subject matter.  Perfect!
