Simply Sunshine

A New project ...Ink Circles ...Garden Stars on Simply Sunshine 32 ct Lugana evenweave.
I saw this fabric at Ann's store.. Knowledge and Needles and had to have it..the colour is so vibrant.
Then I had to pick out a chart and decided on this one..I'm sticking to the colour it calls for and I'm hoping the greens will be pretty on the yellow.
What do you think?   pretty cool eh?
Ink Circles Garden Stars
On the weekend at the retreat My Mom and Kathy contributed to the ornie exchange and this is what she's the one Kathy made..she is just thrilled .she taught Kathy how to stitch many years ago this has a lot of meaning to her...and of course Kathy has been my best friend for 30 years.

Anne..(no Blog)  bought me this awesome yarn and gave it to me yesterday. We saw some of this type of yarn being knit on the we thought it would be fun to try and make the scarf...yes it sure is my colour.  FUN!
