A newly stitched scarf

The natural linen scarf that I already have in my etsy shop is quite well loved. It has 21 'hearts' but it looks a bit lonely there on its own so I thought I'd make it a companion. I am quite fond of this one: I hope that it gains a few fans too. And maybe even someone out there in the wide world who likes it enough to make it their own!

In case you are wondering, necessity was the mother of invention here. I saw some lovely (but expensive) woven striped scarves in a shop, but as I can't weave, I thought I'd try a different way to make a striped effect: by handstitching cotton thread onto already existing linen.
