Sock Knitting

I am so excited! I just signed up for my fall knitting class. It starts on Tuesday night. I am going to learn all about knitting socks. Something I have never been able to do and also helps me with my goal that I made for the new year last January, to do new things. I took another knitting class last winter and learned many new knitting techniques that I never imagined I could do. Like knitting with a needle in both hands and one time. Quite challenging in the begining but really easy and fun after you get familiar with it all.

With this cooler weather we have been having, knitting has been on my mind. I am craving to do some knitting! I will have to go home and see if I have all the supplies I need.

Decorating Contest

Who wants to join?
I just read on Domino's website that they are having a decorating contest. You can enter your room to win a great prize. But I think just having a picture of your room on a website like Domino is cool enough. So I am debating going home and cleaning up and doing a photo shoot. What room shall I do????
You can check out all the rooms that have been entered here.

I could do my lovely basement area here.

It looks much different now that it has carpet. I almost wish my carpet was grey because I really loved the color of the concrete floors. But they just weren't comfortable or warm and the carpet was free so brown it was and has to be.

Another options is my bedroom or my living room? Tell me what you think I should enter.

New Dress

This is my dress I have been working on for the last two weeks. It was good for me to have a dead line, my friend Nick's wedding or it might have never got done. My mom and I worked on this dress that was suppose to be a "Fast and Easy" pattern from Butterick for many hours. All afternoon and evening Sunday, all afternoon Monday. I cut out the pattern for the top three times before I got it right and the skirt twice. Good thing I had purchased many yards of the fabric. I think I might be a pro at this pattern by now. Does anyone want the same dress in the same fabric? hehehe. The reason for having to cut it out so many times was first I forgot that I am not a standard body type any everything always has th be altered to really fit me, the second time was because I altered the pattern incorrectly, so the third time was a charm. I imagine it wouldn't have taken us so long if I got around to sewing more often but I rarely do. I still have a pair of dress pants hanging in my closet from last fall that I was suppose to take the hem out and lengthen. Hopefully I will get around to doing it this fall so I have another pair of pants to wear for work. The sewing machine is now dusted off and warmed up we will have to see what other projects I get finished.


I finally got the front two pillows sewed today. I've been meaning to do this since early spring.
