Your photos are very good. It's not easy to get good clear shots for online sales, at least not for me. Good luck!

Thank you Duchesse. I am delighted with the scarf and its butterflies - so springlike. It was a special pleasure to meet up with you and Jane this afternoon. I managed to make it home before the snow really set in and I hope that the weather didn't damp your spirits.

By the way, the temps here are still far from springlike, but the light is magnificent, my wee black cat Livia is staring through the window in my office, the plants have so many new leaves and there are many brave new buds on the trees in the lane.

I loved the farmers and am surprised it is the only one unsold, but have other priorities, especially a bra that will fit and not hurt, which will cost about that price. Don't fret, someone will love those little people and critters.
