Crochet Shopper Completed
It turned out to be quite a bit larger than what I had imagined. But that just means that more will fit in it...
Crochet liner, interfacing and handles attached
This is what it looked like before the crochet squares were attached. I used plastic cross stitch material. It was an ordeal to assemble; I crocheted the parts together, and they were not always willing! But it is attached securely, and I am confident, will not come undone anytime soon.

Crochet Shopper Blocking
Well, I'm this far-- the 27 squares are assembled, and are now drying. I need to start on the lining. I have some lavender two tone silk dupion from another project that I will be using. I am a little anxious about it... the directions aren't very detailed, and this is my first go 'round with this. Still, hoping for the best!

My Beaded Bag
I finished my Beaded Bag from Beaded Knitting last night. It looks great! I am very happy with the yarn and beads. A lovely confidence building project.
Progress on my Crochet Shopper
Here is the status of the Crochet Shopper. I am enjoying taking my time, slowly tucking in the ends and sewwing all the blocks together.

Beaded Bag from Beaded Knitting KAL
So this is what I started on last night... the KAL from Beaded Knitting. This is the flap and it will be a simple beaded bag! It's a great pattern (thanks Laura!). I know I have the beaded crochet squares to sew up and finish, but I wanted to pick up something quick and fun before I did the (dreaded) finishing of that bag. I just want to have some knitting fun!
Color on Color Scarf Completed!
I know that this is what you have been waiting for! Yeaaa, I have finally finished all the I-Cords, buttons and end-tucking-in! Whoo-hoo! I believe I started this project in earlier April... so almost 2 months. I spent more time than I like to admit on the color blocks. I didn't like how the twisting of the yarn showed. Finally I accepted it as a design element so that I could go on and finish.
