This last weekend I had a couple of hours to work in my sewing room. I was almost at a loss for what project to work on, then I remembered that last time I straightened up the room I put many unfinished projects (UFO's) into one location. I hurried over and opened it up. This… Continue reading Workbasket – Layette Done!
The layette project is almost at an end. Being that I had started this project as a gift for someone else, but it was no longer needed, I hadn't initially had a hard "finish by" date.

As I finished the second half of the front of the sweater, I realized that I had done it again. Put the armholes at the neck… Continue reading Workbasket – yellow sweater
Don't get too excited but... Two workbaskets in one week! I have been working on this vintage Baby Set: I googled "vintage knit layette patterns" and found it on Free Vintage Knitting website.
