There's a lot of reasons to be doorstepping the V&A Museum in London, not least because of their Quilt Exhibition which opens next week - of which more later. Take a large bag with you and be prepared to fill it with the lovely items now in their shop. I love these millefiori crocheted scarves by Sophie Digard and thought you might be entranced by them also. If you can't get to the V&A shop, you can buy on-line - see here.
Sophie also crochets neck garlands and makes decorative flowers to embellish your favourite outfits. Here you can see some of her flowers decorating the edge of another scarf.
The scarves are in fine merino wook and linen and seem perfect for every mood and occasion. But can you stop at one!
If you live in the USA you can purchase from here. If you live in Japan, buy from here. If you are going to the V&A in the near future - take the underground tunnel walkway to the museum and don't try to walk the streets above. There is the mummy of all roadworks between South Kensington tube station and the V&A which is confusing, noisy and very dirty underfoot.
