Thrift store finds on a Thursday

Well, tonight when I was supposed to be working on Miss Melle's duvet cover (which I started to) I got distracted by some sweaters I'd picked up at the local Neat Repeat.  Two were gorgeous cream 100% wool, and one was a Fair Isle cotton number.  I'd bought them with the idea of making pillow covers, which I did.  You can find the instructions @ She has really good her pillows look alot spiffier than mine...but mine were fun to make!  Notice I re-attached the Pendelton label on the front pillow (that's so you'd know it was made from real wool!)  Then I had the brain wave of using the sleeve from the fair-isle sweater to make a little sweater for my travel cup!  Notice how in the bottom photo the trael mug mysteriously appears on the table behind the pillows.  One must always match their living room toss pillows with their travel mugs!
