Winter Shawl Finished

I've been working on this shawl on and off for months. Now that's it's finished, I'm hoping we get some cold weather. It's made from 27 rectangular pieces of wool, overlapped and zig-zagged on the machine and the seams were covered with embroidery stitches. I also used labels from old ties, buttons and some ribbon to decorate. I backed it with a soft silky type fabric, blanket stitched the edge and did a crochet border with pearl cotton. It measures 11" x 68". I'm very cold natured and needed something I could pull on and off easily when out in the cold. Click on the photos for a closer view.
