...when I came home from a thousand errands last Thursday there was a package waiting for me. I had recently ordered some items from Amazon and assumed that was what was delivered. I soon realized that this package was much too pretty to be from a huge discount warehouse. Hmmmm.
...inside was a prettily wrapped gift and card. A very funny card!
ha,ha,ha. Now this pretty wrap was nice enough in itself but there was more...inside was a beautiful scarflet. Just look at this!
Isn't it beautiful? Now, let me tell you all about the scarflet and how I came to be the owner of this special accessory.
This past winter my friend, the Farmlady, (do you know the Farmlady..you must check out her blog) decided to teach herself how to knit. And knit she did, and she loved it...until she was introduced into the world of felting. There was no going back after that and she set out to knit and felt some beautiful things including the scarflet. Enter me...and my neck, you know the one that had 'c' surgery last November and was left with a huge scar across it that looks reminiscent of some sort of attack, yeah that one...but I digress. In an effort to cover this massive scar (really it's only about 5 inches) I have tried many, many things. Scarves, jewelry, bandannas, you name it. I was convinced what I really needed was an Omega necklace but the hubs did not agree...story for another time. Again, I digress...I came across the lovely scaflet that was posted on the Farmlady blog and every so sweetly asked her if she would consider making one for me and my scar. Lucky me, she said yes! You really must see one in person to appreciate how much work went into this and just how lovely it is, but since I'm not about to invite you all to my home, or model my neck for you, you will just have to imagine me wearing it....nice huh?
Head on over and meet the Farmlady. She lives in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with her hubby and some goats and chickens...well you just have to see it. It's quite beautiful...go ahead...Over Good Ground.
