Re-fashioned Sweater

I bumped into my friend Mira from Our Daily Minutiau
the other day and she had on a great re-fashioned sweater .
She gave me a few tips and inspired me to fix this cashmere
sweater I have been holding onto. Thanks Mira for taking the
scarey out of this for me :)

Yup! it was that simple. I laid out my best fitting sweater
trace, cut, sew!

Blog Design

Its that time of year agian.
I get brave enough to re-do/learn/get-frustrated
with the design part of blogging. NOT my specialty.
I decided to search for some freebies. ShabbyBlogs
is where I landed. They have some wonderful graphics
and thier directions were fairly easy to follow. They also 
recommended Fotoflexer where you can do all sorts of great
 things with your photos!  I may have to do some experimenting.

This is the fabric I found for  the swap


I made it into an I-Spy-Swap!
Midnight Maker

Lorelei at Midnight Maker is hosting 2 I-Spy-Swaps
( they are both now full) I thought I missed out
on yet another one, BUT I submited my name anyway
and I made it in as an alternate.
Here is a flickr group of all the fabrics in the Swap. 
Below are a few of my favorites

Lil' House

I was inspired partially by Scandinavian-Stitches
(which I do not own but have drooled over many times,
thanks to the local library and loitering in JoAnn's book section).
And  This  picture I found on Pinterest

 I would love to make a whole passel of these for
Christmas next year. Stitch my peoples names
over the door? Would be cute hangin' on the tree?
