Gypsy - a reversable hand pieced  patchwork tussar silk scarf.
Running stitch adds texture andholds the two layers together. Blanket stitch is used to finish the edges of the scarf.
The reverse of the scarf is a whole cloth patterned with kantha stitch squares of different sizes. 
The soft colours of the patchwork which shine through when the scarf is held up to the light.

June has slipped by,and all I remember are the many nights spent watching the Euro 2012 and the finals last night was simply fantastic. La Roja are the best.

I am delighted to find your blog, so full of stitchery! I love your approach to chant - the multiple square are very appealing.

I'm also quite thrilled to see you have me on your blog roll - Thank You! - but it seems not to be updating, probably because it is still under my old Wicked Waif identity. That was a foray I made into thinking I had to have a brand, and not my actual name, etc. Big waste of time and a big mistake since it confused everyone. *Sigh* Anyway, you can find me at In truth, that will direct you to my website, which is just :-)
