{ Make-it Monday ]

A few years ago I spotted this sweater on the blog Tea Rose Home and knew I would someday want to create one of my own.

I purchased a sweater on sale at Wal-Mart for around $5 and have had it laying around for quite awhile just waiting on me to get in the right mood, or frame of mind, or to get up enough courage to tackle this gorgeous creation.

I recently got up the nerve to give it a try.   Mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as this one,  but I'm pleased with it.  I didn't put the lace around the bottom, or back, or the sleeves.  I think that might be more for a younger lady.  

Here's my copy.....






Anybody else got a project you've completed or are working on for this "Make-it Monday"?

HOPE everybody has a marvelous day!

  4. Oh Wow!!! I am impressed!!!That is beautiful! One question, is it washable? I have a tendency to ruin things with a splash of tea or something, so I am really cautious of things that I can't wash. But that is so lovely...I would be willing to take a chance and wear it proudly...if I could make something like that. I am not crafty, but always appreciate others' hard work and creativity. Lovely!!!!
