A Couple of things

First, I finished my Mom's Knitting bag and even got it shipped off to her! Actually she probably already has received it as I sent it off about a week ago. I took pictures and all but then I was having trouble with my camera ( one of these days I will have to read the instruction booklet!)
anyhow I am very happy with the way it turned out and hope that you love it Mom! Now on to the other thing that I finished last week and could not post about ( because of the camera thing) I finished my third knitting project. Its for my middle daughter, Autumn.
This was a fun challenge because of the pattern. I had to learn some new stitches that Mom walked me threw over the phone ( did I mention my knitting partner lives 2,000 miles away? )

well its done, all I need to do now is get it wrapped and stashed for Christmas, and I am on to my next knitting project! I'm having so much fun with this!

A Favorite Project

A Favorite project of mine. This was a couch that I slip covered last summer and as I was going through my pictures I was reminded of it and thought I would share.
This was done for one of my favorite clients who always comes up with great stuff for me to do
The slip cover itself was constructed of a super sturdy brushed cotton and the pillow were constructed of a combination of fabrics which included a couple of quilted throws from T.J. Max.
I just love the blues so calming!!!

Just an Idea

This is one of the things that my Mom does ( not the best picture ) but she paints on glass. While she was doing it lots , she made this set for me and I just love it the original set came with 8 glasses and this is what is left of the set after about 5 years. One of the great things about this set is that each glass was painted just a bit differently some had red berries, some yellow, some had little pair looking things well, you get the idea....
I'm thinking I would love to have some replacement glasses for this set. Christmas Maybe? Just an Idea.

Lovin the new bag

Loving my new knittin bag! I decided that I needed something to tote my knitting around in so I whipped up this bag out of my new favorite fall fabrics. Now I have room for all my new knitting "Stuff" and a place to keep all the patterns that I have been printing of projects that I want to try ( and there are lots of them!!!!!_) And yes that is the newest project sittin in there, Hope to post completed later this week .... we'll see

Wanting to make a bag for my new Knitting partner ( My Mom) but having a hard time deciding what fabrics to use. May have to post some choices for you Mom, so that you can decide for yourself.

Progress in the Shop

Well after about 6 months in the new shop we are finally making some progress with some of the functional details like shelving and hiding the big ugly heating system.

Hubby started this shelving unit the other day now all we need is doors and paint and it will all look much cleaner then the old medal shelves that I was using before. I have found that I work much better when things are clean and organized. I can not work in a mess. That's not to say that I don't make a mess when I'm working.

Second Project.. But There is a Problem!!!!

Finished with my Second Knitting project and I'm pretty happy with it. This is a hat and scarf for my oldest Daughter ( getting a head start on Christmas ) but as I mentioned there is a problem!! All I want to do is knit. I all ready have about 6 other projects all picked out that I want to work on. Oh well I will just have to create more time in my day for it.
