The Gift of the Scarf

I have a passion for woven items, particularly scarves. I love the way they drape, protect and provide warmth when needed.  The Bible in Exodus 35:25 honors our sister weavers: And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands and brought that which they had spun, the blue, and the purple,Continue reading “The Gift of the Scarf”
