Happy Birthday Lisa!

My friend Lisa turned 50 this week

I made her a scarf using beautiful multicoloured italian silk. I didn't put any decoration on the main part of the scarf as I didn't want to detract from the beautiful fabric.  The fabric wasn't quite wide enough to make my normal length scarf (and at $130.00 per meter I wasn't buying another 30 cms!) so I bought some plain white silk and dyed it using ordinary old fabric dye.  Perfect  colour match ;-) . I then felted the plain silk so the scarf had pretty ends.  I do hope she likes it.  (The presents remained unopened last night). Oh yeah and I made the card a few weeks before at my second last day at Scraptacular :-(

Lisa's birthday cake was to die for!!
