Tedious Steps In Pushin Myself Forward

This is one of the projects that I had to delay from completion because every step had to be re visioned. This one started out with different colors and different decoration. I started out with narrow silk scarves. When I found out that the scarves did not match in finish, I had to start over. This time it worked out with satin cording but each complete circle took me about four hours. That is why I say tedious. Soon the bottom row of cranberry satin will be completed. Then I will be on to the interfacing and then the lining. I can't say whether one is more satisfying than the other. I so enjoy the touch of cloth that it is all fulfilling. The body of the purse is raw silk.
The dogs now want to go for a walk, the sun is shining and sky blue. All feels good with the world.

Hi, Pat ! Thanks for the comment on my painting ! Sometimes delay is good ! One step backward to go three steps forward ;))
Hope you had nice walk with your dog. It's still very cold and snowy over here.

I hope you are doing well. I would love to know the process of what you are working on with the scarves. I heard your weather is really nice right now.
