Slipcovering Again

I don't know about where you live but here in Minnesota it feels like fall! so for my next Hog Shed project I went with this beautiful fall fabric for Septembers Slip covered Chair! I love the way that it turned out and the throw is as soft as it looks!!
What a fun chair for a cozy Cottage this fall.

Starting at the Begining

OK so I am determined to figure out how to knit again! I see all of these wonderful things that you ladies are making and I want them all!! I used to knit when I was a girl and had my grandma at my side to help me when I got stuck, but now I'm on my own except for one friend that I see about once a month so maybe if I get stuck I will have someone to help me out. so for my first project I started with the first project in t he book. I love the yarn and cant wait till it gets a bit cooler so that I can wear it with my favorite fall jacket.

A Settee for Sara

Back from my little "working Vacation" and much needed family time in Sunny California, I am back in the work shop full force with a fun Project for a very Sweet family. A Slip covered Settee in a fun mix of fabrics which include a Ralph Lauren Quilt along with a washable leather and a nice muted red quilting cotton for the trim and pillows I just love the way this one turned out!!! I hope they like it too!
