I’ve been making something lately that seems to attract alot of attention. It is a scarf (a very frilly, very full scarf, which is more like a fabric boa). When I dreamed it up last week, I thought it would be magnificent, inspired, beautiful and oh so chic. This week, I’ve been thinking maybe it is a little much (since most of the people I’ve shown have thought it too heavy looking). In spite of this, I think I still do like it, and at least it utilises scrap fabric (alot of scrap fabric) from old shirts and sample swatches, making it quite eco-conscious. What do you think?
I really should put this in context. Last week I got thinking about engagement photo-shoots and how I might like to create one with J. There are so many fun and elaborate ideas out there, so I think it likely that our photos may end up being an amalgamation of many influences. All I know at this stage is that the scarf will form part of my ‘costume’ (since it is so fun to dress up) and I want to incorporate balloons (aren’t they just so friendly?).
(maybe all we really need is just one fun balloon?)
Here are some of the other links I’ve been saving:
1. Cute dress right?
4. A picnic would be great because then we could eat some yummy food afterwards.
5. This one is fun and also features a beautiful double wedding ring quilt annnndd if J brings his guitar then he can serenade me for a little while and I will have a nice good rest. Thinking of this reminds me of the owl and the pussycat as well as Chagall’s painting which inspired the Notting Hill quote “Happiness isn’t happiness without a violin playing goat” (not that J is a goat).
