One More Project finished

I Found a couple of minutes to get a personal project done this weekend yahoo! My School House Tunic top from Sew Liberated I have to say I love this pattern. It was so easy to put together and the fit was right on! This is just some clearance fabric that I picked up to kinda practice the pattern with. I did wear it out on Saturday night and really enjoyed it

I'm looking forward to making another one of these.

I just love my new top!

Just for practice... Lately I've been wanting to put together Clothing needing a new robe I looked threw my very small stack of patterns and fond one for a robe and one for some very simple drawstring pants. not really wanting to spend money on fabric I looked threw what I had for fabric humm... light weight and pretty I found an old linen table cloth that I purchased at
a garage sale a while ago ... a robe and pj pants were born I had made this robe before and it was huge so I was working on adjusting the pattern so that it wouldn't fit me like one of those "snuggie" things I cut the pattern down and pleated the front and back. fits better than the first one I made but still not super happy with it

I also finished my first KAL ( knit a Long) that I found at kris knits blog
have a great weekend

Some things have been finished ...

Got my Sweater finished, well .... sort of, I'm not real happy with the cowl and am re knitting it again but I am happy with the rest of the sweater. I really did not stay too true to the pattern( great pattern by the way, love love love it) but I just learned how to do color work and waned to try it out on something other that a hat. so there you have it
