This morning I was wondering what I could do to make this scarf different from the one I listed a few days ago in my folksy shop....
So I decided I would pop it in the original dye, along with some old nails for extra details, and leave it to brew for a few more days!
I just hope I can wait a few days and curiousity doesn't get the better of me!!
I will post the results for all to see.

My buyer was a fellow Folksy shopkeeper herself and she sells lovely handmade jewellery ( www.folksy.com/shops/chiyo ) but she bought a delicate silk scarf necklace from me!
She received it yesterday and says she loves it, which makes me feel so much better about my products, as i got a bit nervous about sending my first item out!

Each one has an individual print, layered with another piece of dyed fabric, then stitched onto the card......I am very happy with them!
I will be adding them to my Folksy shop later.... http://www.folksy.com/shops/lissi

The day flew by but I managed to produced some lovely colours in shades of warm peaches
and moody greys!
The only problem is I only have have enough silk for one more dye batch so i'm thinking wisely before I plunge in!
I can't wait for the weekend to start making some items, but for now it's off to work.....

It feels a little strange I must say as I am thinking 'what the hell can I write about?!?!' but I think I will find something as I seem to be able to natter on for hours so may as well write some of it down.....but afraid this is all for now, goodnight!x
