Adding The Last Touches ..

Hello my dear friends,

boy ... can raking leaves be a chore! My arms and hands are aching since I spent most of the last two days trying to pick as many up as I can because it would be too much all at once and with my luck it would have started to snow by the time all my leaves were on the ground.

Even though I knitted my scarves quite fast it has taken me a bit to get back to them to give them the final touches and get them ready for mailing but I am slowly getting there. Since the two first scarves are so light in color I decided to give a very delicate last touch in the shape of my little crochet flowers to which I added little pearls. I am so happy with the way it looks but take a look for yourselves ...

I used double thread to makes these little flowers and a different shade of pink for the pearls but am not quite finished just yet ... 

... I am making a tag for each scarf with a few words for each recipient. I just want each lady to know that the scarf was made especially for her, even though I don't know who she is and that she was thought of with healing wishes, loving care and in my thoughts and prayers. I would be so happy knowing I made her smile a little.

At last ... the first scarf is ready for mailing.
Last but not least ...
... amongst all the other bits and pieces that need to be done by me right now and things I would like to do, I am trying to work on a new tutorial for my etsy shop. Right now I need to get things scanned into my desk top computer before I have to take it apart for the basement renovations. My list of things to~do is getting longer and longer and I am excited to get everything sorted, finished and try new things out!
So ... stop by some time again and visit me because I might just have something new to share with you!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends,
Have a peaceful weekend,
Karen B.
