Getting a little headstart on fall

I'm working on a little redo for the living room for fall so I decided to put together a little sampler to see if I liked the colors together. I used the left over insulation beads from Autumns bean bags for a new bed for Hanna This is Hanna our family Pooch. She's pretty sweet most of the time.
I think she likes it . She is sitting outside my workshop soakin up some sun.
Have a Great weekend

Last Weeks Projects

Business has been picking up a bit . This is what I have been up to in the Shop
Before After
I really have to work on my camera work sorry for the weird angles.



This is a set that I did for a new client who was giving her formal living room a make over from mauvie pinks to a fun but formal blue. They were really happy with the way that it all turned out ME TOO.

This Weekend....

This weekend I Started and Finished this sweater for JT ! I have been working on my Pullover for quite some time now and was really in need of a quick knit, I didn't think it would be so quick though. Isn't he the cutest guy ever!! I've had this pattern printed off for quite awhile now ( I got it here ) I just didn't have the yarn so when I went to Joann's I looked to see if I could find anything that I liked... and I did!! This was such a quick knit and Yes I will be making another one for a Christmas Gift.

Now back to the pullover~ after I make JT a hat to match his sweater that is!

The Sale Starts Today!

Yup just getting ready for the sale ( I work there today ) I will be armed with new aprons for
The Hog Shed . Claire thought it would be a good idea to have something to identify the workers and I thought it would be nice to have a few extra pockets Plus I got to use some of my letter stamps again~ Love that. Hope she likes them. As for me, I used mine in the work shop yesterday and loved it. I'm always leaving my seam ripper, marking pin, scissors in places that take for ever to find, now they are right in my pockets.

See you at the sale~~ JT is so exited!

Ok one more thing for The Hog Shed

This is something that has been in the works for a while now and I am super proud of it! Its my new line of knitting bags. I did a couple for the shop last fall and they all sold, so I thought I'd kick it up a bit and fill it with all the things that I like to have in my Knitting bag So here you have it at Supper sturdy bag made of heavy upholstery fabric filled with a zippered bag for all those knitting notions, tape measure stitch holders and markers ect. a needle holder for both regular and double pointed needles, and a small projects bag, perfect for socks, washcloths or what ever.
all my bag will come with hand made coordinating Stitch Markers that my Daughter Autumn makes with her super Beading Skills!!

All bags are one of a kind ( not the greatest picture~ sorry )

Looking forward to a fun sale this week. Sale starts tomorrow!

JT says Hi to all!! ( lovin my new Grandbaby!)

Does your iron look like this? Mine used to when I used regular starch. but I have found something better. Yup now my iron looks like this! nice and clean. I love that I don't have to run my iron into the house and clean it up every couple of days thanks to this new product Its called best press. I found it at Hancock Fabrics and love it. It works great. and no messy iron

this is the label on the back and so far it holds true the only thing that I do not agree with is that I don't think it smells "Wonderful" its a little chemically when you first spray it from the bottle.
But other than that its great stuff.

Have a great Monday!
