Fiber, Air and Thread

I have been making scarves by sandwiching yarns and fabric scraps between two sheets of Solvy and then quilting a grid with my sewing machine to hold it together. Since DH left his backpack with our digital camera behind at Disneyland, I had to scan this on our flatbed scanner. You can still see the Solvy on this piece. It is made of nylon ribbon, two colors of flax yarn, fun fur and beige thread. This one went to a coworker moving across the country next week.

Miss I was so thrilled to wake up one morning to find this drying on the banister, that she just had to model this one for you. It was drying because I gave it a good soaking in warm water to dissolve the Solvy, of course. She has bedhead. Miss I, not the scarf. This one is composed of nylon ribbon, recycled silk that Ann had unspun and washed for me, some leftover fancy black/multi/sparkly yarn and lots of colors of thread. This one went to Miss I’s teacher for her birthday.
