I just returned from my 3rd Huskylock 936 serger class and I think the striped organza scarf that I want to make is finally within reach. It is pictured on the cover of Threads magazine (June/July 2005 - I wish I could link and show you) and I imagine making it in shades of taupe, black and gray. It is a scarf built with sheer panels of different colors of organza - yum!
Do you have projects that you are dreaming about? Keep a list...I think that knowing what you want to make is part of leading an optimistic life...even if it takes you 2 years to try it!
