A Little of This, A Little of That

I can't tell you how happy I am to be done with the Vogue two-toned shell and it's wearable lol.

I made the skirt last year. You can see one of the many mistakes, when I changed from circular to straight needles I somehow ended up with gartner stitch instead so stockinette, I decided to leave it.

I also finished another version of Butterick 5046. This is the same type of sheer fabric as the "cloud top" I used the left over lining from the black (funeral) dress.

Love the button.

And lastly I put down a new floor in my half bath, it's peel and stick carpet tiles from Home Depot on-line, they don't have them in the store. This bathroom has been flooded on more than one occassion so I wanted to find something that wouldn't be such a big deal to replace. I really like how it came out. I cropped it to save you to picture of the toilet and trash can, it's a really small bathroom.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Wow, the fabric for that dress is gorgeous! Love it! And I really like the carpet squares..I used it in my basement in my last house, so that way if the basement got wet, it was easy to fix. Nice work!!!
