the finish line























Look a here.
Just needs neck and arm bands. Whilst seeking advice from my knitting mum-in-law,, she tells a story. She was once in a 'rush' to finish a cricket jumper for John and in picking up her neckband stitches she accidentally went all the way down across and picked up one of the shoulder seams! and didnt realize till she had finished the neckband!  Ha!
That is so stinking funny...
{i shouldn't laugh too much}

I have been known to totally screw up myself, on occasion.
It's great when you can just have a big ole'  roaring laugh at your self.
or your mum-in-law...

 emus and feathers in my view.
check out this slideshow.
now this is my kinda decorating.
 what style, what flair, what personality.
all thrifted!
