GLAMOUR KNITS

This beautiful lampshade slipcover is from the book "glamour knits AT HOME" by Erika Knight. The book has 15 projects, ranging from pillows and cushions to slippers and a throw. As I am not a knitter myself (I do know how, I just don't enjoy it,) I had my mother make me two of these covers. I have yet to add the embellishments, so the picture is taken from the book. If and when I ever get mine finished, I'll be showing them off.

On another note, I need to take a wee break from my blog. I've got some personal stuff I am dealing with and I should concentrate on that and not be worried about my blog. I'll be back soon, probably in a week or so. Until then...

I"m surprised how much I like this lampshade - the description doesn't sound like my kind of thing. But I can definitely see this is a vintage-inspired guest room.

Hope your reasons for being away from your blog is because you've been inundated with orders!

I'll look forward to your return.
