Ice Blue AG Sweater in the Shop

I just added the first of several 18" doll sweaters to my Etsy shop. I love to knit these sweaters, and I hope they bring some little girls hours of pleasure.



This is an ice blue cabled sweater, perfect for those chilly nights of ice skating ahead.



It features a double cable design in the front and the back.



There is also a cable running the length of each arm.

If you'd like to add this sweater to your doll's (or daughter's) collection, you can find it in my shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/481894381/handknit-ice-blue-cabled-sweater-for-18

Shop Update: Handknit Fall Dishcloth Sets for Sale

It's been a few years since I added anything to my Etsy shop. (I sold all of my vintage sheets when we moved from our previous home.)

Recently I've been bitten by the dishcloth knitting bug and decided to list some sets in my Etsy shop.





The first set is a basketweave design. Bonus: The design is reversible, so it looks good from any angle.

You can find this set in the shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/466447098/handknit-basketweave-fall-dishcloth-trio





The second set is a textured design that is good for scrubbing dishes. It's also reversible, looking exactly the same on both sides.

You can find this set in the shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/479936897/textured-handknit-fall-dishcloth-trio

Each set is $9 with shipping figured in. They would make an excellent Thanksgiving hostess gift, if you're planning to spend the holiday at someone else's home. Of course, you could just treat yourself to some new dishcloths, too!

If you're interested in different colors for your dishcloths, I'm happy to discuss special orders. You can send me a message on Etsy, if that interests you.

Dining Room Focal Point

One of the things that came with the parsonage was an antique organ in the dining room. Since it needs to stay and is a lovely piece, I'm working it into my decor.



We found some grape-themed items at a yard sale that go well with the colors of the room and the overall look of the organ.



Here's a closer picture to make out more of the details:



It goes well with these grapes I got in a bag lot of greenery at a thrift store a few weeks ago:



This arrangement is on the pass-through between the kitchen and dining room.

I love the new decor, and the best thing is that we didn't even need to paint. (Well, that's the best thing according to my husband.) ;)

Telling it like it is ...



I saw this saying on Pinterest and knew that I needed it for my craft area. I always feel the need to apologize about the "mess" (i.e. work-in-progress) in my craft area, so this will explain for me. (Really, only a non-crafter would expect a spotless craft area, right?)

Anyway, I had a blank canvas sitting around, so I made this myself with a little help from my computer, an overhead projector, and a paint pen. It was really easy!
