This scarf has been off of the loom for quite awhile now!!

All I had to do was trim the fringe and cut threads.  But…it sat in the mending pile for months!!!  This will be a nice one for winter.

I really like the way this came out.  I love the contrast of the light and the dark.

Name Pillows

Every year, for Christmas, I make our family individual gifts.  I have made scarves, hats, mittens, blankets (that was a crazy year!!! 5 twin size and 1 king size blanket in one year), jewelry, jammies, etc.  This year I made Name Pillows!  I made one for each of my kids, one for my husband and one for my niece.
