Fashion Quiz

Directions:  Multiple Choice.  You are to choose:  likeness or not.   Senerio:  I recently knitted this adorable (well, I think) fawncho (poncho) and any completion of a project is always followed by a photo shoot.  And, it seems to be at the site of the photo shoot when my hubby becomes familiar with the new […]
