I bought this lovely scarf on my holiday and though it would be nice for a top. Instead of stitching the triangles down, I kept it as it shows, and I like this style a lot :)

    Um, new hairstyle?? Very chic! The top is fab too! Such a vibrant print for spring! I just went back and looked at your other recent projects, not a new haircut…why did I think that?? LOL! Maybe it’s a prominent back of your hair pic so I just noticed? Whatevs. Looks great!

    Wow! So cool. I have a lovely silk scarf that I never use as a scarf and have wondered for a long time if I should make it into something else. This is fab!

    I love this top Ellen! In my husband’s home village, the sea turtles sometimes lay their eggs on the beach in front of his parents’ house. My boys used to search on the beach, late at night, for baby turtles having lost their way to the sea. They used to pick them up and put them in the water…

      It’s an amazing story. I have nearly not seen a live turtle. The boys did a great job! Thanks for your lovely compliment Elpida!

    Gorgeous Ellen and it looks terrific on you. The scarf was a good thing to use. I bought some from a charity shop to use as tops but I haven’t had time yet Lol. X

    Very nice and breezy with matching shoes. What a great idea to turn a scarf into a blouse!
