Branching Out Photo Shoot

I made my mom the Branching out lace scarf for Christmas. Her favorite color is blue/turquoise - so I made her the scarf and buttonhole bag to match.

My mom was very self conscious about posing for a photo shoot. She didn't think she looked enough like a "model". Well I think she looks gorgeous!!

Let's hear it for my mom!! The scarf model!!














This was my first lace and first blocking experience - I love how the open work "bloomed" when I blocked it.

Are you sure you weren't just creeping her out from all the weird angles used to shoot her like hanging from the tree?

Your mom looks beautiful; a perfect model for your craft. Blue is definately her color.

This is beautiful - what a wonderful color. This is one of my favorite patterns. I need to get back to the one for my MIL one day!
