This is a great scarf right? Hard to believe that I found it! It is also ALL SILK! If you let your imigination flow can you not just see this as a crazy quilt??? Would that not be awesome? A circus crazy quilt? I am seeing it. Now just to take the time to plan it out!
As I was checking out with this little gem, the lady who owns the store asked me did see the one with the birds? "Birds?----No. What Birds?" "The scarf with the birds on it." she said to me. "Uh, No......Where would it be??" She started to look around her store. She then showed me this one:
(Sorry it is not ironed)
WOW! No I did not see this one! Of course I said that I would take it on just a glance! If you were in my place is that not what you would have done?? Upon closer inspection of the scarf, it is also silk. Look closer........The birds and flowers are hand painted! WHOO-HOO! Jackpot! Right??? Let me show you the close ups of the birds.
Just awesome! Here is another corner:

What can I say? I am still in awe of this jewel! Here is the fourth corner:
Who ever painted this scarf was very talented! The birds are just so...so...well for lack of a better phrase. They are just AWESOME!! Now I bet you can see THIS one in a crazy quilt!
The plans for so many crazy quilts are just stacking up! With the years getting shorter and shorter, well I can tell you I will have so many UFO's in the closet my darling daughter is just going to die when she has to clean it out when I finally pass away! Hopefully I will leave her with smiles!
There is my entertaining story for the day! Just wait until the next post. We are going to talk about the torture of a great friend!
