The Lure of the Scarf: roses

The design for this chiffon scarf started out as a sketchbook prompt for "roses" and was inspired by a bit of Mary Oliver poetry:

"Wild roses," I said to them one morning. "Do you have the answers? And if you do, would you tell me?"

The roses laughed softly. "Forgive us," they said. "But as you can see, we are just now entirely busy being roses."
