Crochet Lace Doiley Scarves
I'm frantically working in my studio to build up my inventory to take first to Art & Soul in Portland on Oct. 3rd and then I'll be selling at the Weavers' Guild of St. Louis annual show Nov. 5-7. A few weeks after I get home from that I'll be in some Christmas shows so I'm really under the gun to produce! These are some new designed scarves I'm working on. The pale blue/gray one pictured on the mannequin is completed. One is in the process of being layed out to sew and the other picture shows dyed pieces in various colors. Of course these are "wayward threads" using vintage crocheted doilies, curtain panels, and laces. I'm backing them with dyed gauze and may throw in some silk ribbons.
