More happy knit!

Today I listed this sweater knit dress in sage...
 



I really like this dress, and think it wouldd be great to wear to church, work or everyday. I like this design, but will alter it the next time by taking out the drape, and shortening it to tunic length. Also in new colors such as cloud blue, grass green, and burgundy.
On another note, I absolutely love this spot in my yard where my dear husband takes pictures for me. Our house backs up to the woods, and this is the fence on the back side of our yard. Today the first hints of fall came through in the gentle breeze blowing on us, as we took these. As he takes these I can also admire the wildflowers, and morning glory vines growing up the trees in the forest. That is true inspiration.
On a personal note I am now 3 months pregnant with sweet baby #5!

Works in progress....


Sitting here watching TLC and finishing up an order. My whole family is sleeping, and my husband has to get up soon to go in for the night shift. This is usually my time where I get a lot of work done. When I was pregnant with my first a mother I respected told me to make your children's bedtime 7:30pm from the beginning. I think this is one of the best advice I ever took. I always use this time after they go to bed to do things I that love, which is now working on my orders for my shop. 
 
Here is what I am working on

My retro red check ruffle dress, headed out to the beautiful Australia!
You can see this dress in my shop here



We live in a rural town here in the South, so the nearest fabric shop is about a 45 minute drive.  Because of that I order most of my fabric on-line. It does not always turn out to be the fabric that I hoped it was. This flannel fabric I ordered awhile ago. It again, is not totally what I had hoped for, but I now know that I am going to use it for lining for corduroy pea coats, of red, and navy.
