Liberty's "josephine's garden" in vermont









Sometimes Gretta is my fabric "supplier", operating out in the "real world". She found this gorgeous Liberty of London print at NYC's Mood fabric store and I ordered a yard from her. Inspired by Lotta Jansdotter's book Everyday Style, Gretta and I have both tried making her triangle scarves. Shown with a whimsical pom pom trim in the book, I tried stitching mine with a tiny pink ric-rac. I was not very happy with the results, so I took a deep breath and bravely trimmed off the edges and instead...I hand-stitched a rolled hem, using this tutorial. So much better!

Now I can wear a buttercup and red clover meadow around my neck whenever I want! #Ilovermont

  4. Oh what a wonderful print! Love the clover and buttercups. Your scarf looks lovely. I've been toying with the idea of making some of my own and now I just might!
