I finally got it finished and yes I'm pretty happy with it, although its not a true "Surface" sweater ( I just couldn't figure out that darn blister pattern) I substituted a double moss stitch and really love the look! I am looking forward to making another one of these with a few more alterations to the pattern but for now I'm just happy to say that I'm done with it. I learned a lot doing this one.

Also thank you to Katie over at philigry for her help and encouragement. Take a moment and stop over at her Blog she is having a great give away!!

OK no more pictures of the sweater I promise.
Thanks for stopping Have a great rest of the week.

A Couple of Things for The Hog Shed

In preparation for the up coming sale at The Hog Shed I was happy to get back out into the shop! especially since my dear friend Deanna sent me these great stencils that I re-created into pillows ( yes, I totally stole her idea but she said it was OK! ) anyhow I love how they turned out and hope to be making more soon. and then on to a fun and springy slipcover My mission was to find some fun fabrics with green and oranges but this caught my eye, so I had to get it. Cant you just see this in an English cottage.

I guess I'm just a cottage girl at heart.

oh yeah and the back is.... well you know, fun too!!

Looking forward to some more fun ideas that Ive been cookin up in the ol brain for next month and will be posting some pics of my latest knitting project too, I'm almost done, just need to get some buttons!!
