I finally finished my Dexter cardigan.  I really love it.  The yarn is a blend of merino, silk, and cashmere.  Can you say ohhh so soft?  That it is.  I used a soft blue gray yarn with the intent of it going with a particular dress that I am going to sew just as soon as I decide on the shape. 

I'll try to get a good pic of it but the weather has been dreary so I couldn't get it so far. 

Now to figure out what will be my next sweater.  I really need some dressy cardigans for this winter but I think I have waited too long to get more than maybe one more done.  Stay tuned.

Pics finally

 Finally I figured out this picture thing. 😊  These are the pillowcases that I made. 

Posting Pics

I used to be able to post pics but I have forgotten how evidently..  I think I am doing it the way I used to, but it is not working.  Guess I need to do some trial and error and see what happens.  :(

A Little Sewing...

I've been in the mood to sew here recently.  So I have been being creative with my sewing machine as well as with my knitting needles.
At Christmas I made scarves for several of my family from those fuzzy throws then embroidered their initial on them.  They were a success (for the most part). 
Now I am making some pillowcases.  I got new sheets and they only had 2 pillowcases and I really need four for my bed so when I saw this tutorial Kelby sews pillowcases  I decided to give them a try.  The tutorial is really easy to follow and the cases were super simple to make.  She has lots of other things on there that I also want to give a try to.
