Speedy Ruffle Scarf from the One Yard Wonders book

A little quickie sewing project before the year ends.... As I was writing my last post I noticed I had left my Fabric by Fabric One Yard Wonders book open to the Speedy Ruffle Scarf. If you knew how often I accessorize with scarves you'd understand why this ended up being my first project from the book. This scarf is designed for knit fabric and really is speedy. I was able to cut and sew my scarf in about 30 minutes.   I'll be honest, I didn't follow the instructions. I glanced at them, made some changes to the cutting layout and sewed it a bit differently than written. I used a sparkly purple fabric purchased in the clearance section at Hancock Fabrics. I wish you could see this in person as it looks much nicer than what I could capture with the camera. Even though I suspect the fabric was meant to be used for Halloween costumes I like my little speedy ruffle scarf. It makes me smile. **********************************************

A sweet week

A week of marathon sweet treat baking, followed by a week of marathon sweat treat eating, means I'll need to add more  Zumba workouts to my week.  I swear I must have gained five pounds in the past two weeks alone.  But it was so worth taste buds were in heaven.  ********************************
