Some bargains and projects

I got this chair at a garage sale for TWENTY BUCKS! It goes perfectly in my living room. Could not believe it. It was at a garage sale that gave all the money to the Ame*rican Ca*ncer Socie*ty.

The green vest is for Reece that I still need to add the ribbing on the neck and armholes. It was knit from the top down all in one piece. So easy. He will getting many more of these! I also am almost finished with the little shorts that go with it in the same plaid as Avery's jumper.

Here is the little shrug that I knit Avery with a VERY simple jumper pattern dress underneath. Slowly but surely I am getting this sewing thing. Still need to sew the button on the shrug and embroider her initials on the dress and then finished. I am planning on waiting for them to wear these until Mother's Day.

Very Cute! Love the matching thing, we're going to do that as long as possible! I didn't stick with the knitting thing but you are doing so well! I guess I replaced it with smocking! I have a baby sweater that I knit for Abby that I never even assembled! Keep up the pics! That's very fun.

Sooo cute!!! I have always wanted to learn to knit! Since I just recently taught myself to sew, I better just stick to one thing at a time. So the instructions for the pillowcase dress are easy - but long for a comment. Do you still need me to tell you how?
