Needlework Tuesday - All Wrapped Up

 Daughter's scarf is finally finished.  It sure takes a long time to knit a scarf in sock weight yarn, but it was worth it.  The resulting scarf is so soft and cuddly.  By chance we choose the same colour as her university school team. Go Marauders.  To learn about the pattern and yarn, check this earlier post. #TemperatureScarf

Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you
 I'm looking forward to wrapping up my year long temperature scarf project.  The end of September will see me stitching the final rows.  This week I am featuring the rows for July, with my scarf for Waterloo, Ontario on the left.
While my mother was here the past two weeks, I took advantage of idle fingers and had her knitting.  She finished three of these ruffle scarves and then I worked on the mauve and grey one.  Daughter had bought a whole bunch of balls of ruffle yarns, but never seemed to work on them.

I did find myself in the fabric store today and bought a few metres of lovely cottons.  I have a quilt that needs to be in a bit of a rush, so should have some photos for you next week.  Not too sure how the colours are going to work out, but I trust the colour wheel won't steer me wrong.

I have relied on a colour wheel a few times to help in my selection of colours of fabric, and the resulting projects looked wonderful.  Have you ever used a colour wheel in your stitching?  It's a great took, you just have to put your trust in a time honoured method of colour co-ordinating.

My university football team was the Marauders. I was very happy that the team colour was maroon because my brother bought me this fabulous scarf in maroon for my birthday. That was of course eons ago...lol

Perfect for the autumn and winter. I have a large collection of scarves for all seasons as I think they brighten the most boring of outfits

I have been tempted to make a colour wheel quilt. However, it is yet another of ideas that will probably never see the light.
