We are so close to being done painting my craft room (just need another gallon of paint for one more coat) and it's so much brighter. Hopefully sometime in the next 5 years when it's all done and put together I'll share a picture of it with you. I'm not a blue person so that shade of blue was new thing for me and I am glad I chose it now.
Speaking of color...I have been obsessed with burgundy. I am usually a green and brown kinda gal. You know what looks great with green and brown? Yup, burgundy. I made this scrunchy scarf out of jersey knit cotton in and the color goes with everything I wear. I just love it and it's lightweight enough to wear year round. Here's the tutorial if you want to make one yourself or if you want to see how cool it looks on (cause I am not modeling it for you).

A few days ago while shopping I came across this beautiful cotton yarn in burgundy and so I bought it. I have been wanting to make a neck warmer/ cowl for a while and it looks pretty easy to do so I gave it a try.

Here's a picture of the style I was going for. This one is for sale on Etsy. This is not me or my neck warmer. She has a lovely neck and warmer so I thought I would share hers with you.

And here is my finished neck warmer modeled by my lovely lamp.

You can wear it open or shut. I love the way it turned out and actually plan on making a navy one next using some vintage sailor buttons I came across. Maybe navy will be next next favorite color

Lacey, as a kid I had a doll (similar to Barbie) called Spacey Lacey. I loved her! I tried to search online for the doll but had no luck.
