My friend grew up on a farm with a lovely orchard. And I visited this farm and this orchard on a few occasions. A truly beautiful place in the mountains; stunning views and fresh air. My friend's mom is a sweetheart. She is kind and adorable and makes the best peach pie I ever had. So, when her birthday came up, my friend asked me to help out. She send me a few photos from the farm and as I sifted through them, I recalled just the nicest of memories. To capture this home in its fullness, I decided to use a photo of the orchard as a pattern piece for my textile design that would later transform into an infinity scarf. I believe the photo below captures everything that this place means to my friend and to her mom. It's the sunshine. It's the richness and ever-so-present giving nature of an orchard. It's the work they put into it.
Update as of July 29, 2017: My friend's mom now has her new scarf and this is what she said about it ... "My daughter gave me this lovely scarf for my birthday. I knew immediately that it was a design by her friend, Martina. When I discovered that the inspiration for the scarf came from a picture of my orchard I was delighted. Martina is a very talented artist and a very good friend."
