Hello and happy Friday! This week has been so busy, but I'm glad to have a little bit of time to visit with you this morning.
I thought I'd share my Doily Sweater today. It started as a plain khaki-colored cardigan that my mom handed down to me. Whenever I wore it I just felt kind of boring. So last year when I saw this lovely, jazzed up cardigan I knew I had to make one of my own.
I gathered my supplies: a couple of motifs crocheted by me, some lace and doily from this crafty blogger (thanks, Deb!), and a thrifted mini-doily. I hand-stitched all of these lacy items onto the sweater and then left it hanging in the living room for months, waiting for inspiration to strike again so that I could finish it. Hey Inspiration, where are you? I'm still waiting...
Now, this cardigan still doesn't feel finished to me, which is why it has only made a brief appearance on this blog. It needs more doilies, bits of vintage fabrics, and a swap out of buttons. But...it's cold out and I've been reaching for this sweater on chilly mornings despite its unfinished status. I'm kind of a work-in-progress myself, so this cardigan fits me well.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! You still have time to enter my giveaway!
