Goings On...

Glad the Weekend is here. I have been busy as a bee this week, working on different projects.

On Monday I started another crochet thread project, called Lila, I haven't decided if it will be a top or cardigan until I finish the left side. I am working it up in shaded lavender and a solid lavender. I have completed the back using single crochet and a cross stitch, Now I'm working on the right front which is being done in single crochet with a wide panel of the solid lavender... totally feeling this piece. Tuesday I returned to the Halter top project, which has become a disaster.. I didn't like the way the halter was turning out so I attempted or rather I changed it to a tank.. I'm not happy with the straps, and although I made sure the pieces were assembled on the correct side... one of the pieces ended up on the wrong side... darn it... I need to get an Ott lite. So for now I'll direct my attention to the pants part of this project... crossing fingers, eyes and toes on this one...lol Wednesday, I reorganized my craft paraphernalia, my brother was kind enough to mount my new Baskets that I'd purchased from Target. My brother is too funny, he was like what else are you going to put on this wall.? I have nearly used all of the wall space... and you're only seeing half of the wall...hehe... Thanks Bro....
Thursday, I finished the last of the yarn for Cora... and ventured out to find another skein... no luck... so for now its on hold...






while in search for more yarn for Cora I purchased a few balls of lime colored yarn to mix with my recently received yarn from Mimi Crochet Stuff to do a bikini set for my niece...
and I also purchased more fabric and easy New Look patterns...

Ooh, I like all the "goings on". Funny you mentioned the Ott Lite, I just mentioned to my husband how I would like one for Christmas (okay, sooner, but trying to pick a holiday and not seem obnoxious by saying-buy it NOW)

YOu have a LOT going on and I feel you on the OTT lite. I sewed some fabric on the WRONG SIDE and had to pull the dress apart because I didn't see it....humph lol

Wow you're busy with these projects. Happy crafting.

Are you near a Jo~Anns? I know there is one on Old Country Road in Westbury, I think. Anyway they frequently have good sales on Ott Lites. I have a small portable one but plan on getting a larger size one of these days.

I love the way Cora turned out, it looks great with a black tank top!
Happy hooking, looking forward to see more of your work :)

You have some very nice projects in the works.

You have been busy! Lila is looking great! So is Cora. I like the blue tank too, but I see what you mean about the color change. I have an ott-lite next to my sewing machine and I swear I can't see anything without it anymore. Love seeing all your projects! Mary

Hello Ladies... and Thanks for posting. I am still going full throttle on Lila... I have finished the front panels.. and have not decided whether it will be a cardigan or top. While searching for something I came across a packet of plastic rings... and of course... an idea is slowly emerging... stay tuned.

Sheila - the blue tank did you sew that one or crochet it? Because if it is sewn, use the don't ask, don't tell policy...never admit that you think its wrong ~ its just a design feature! Now I know you must have that out when crocheting?! *smile* But I am a true novice when it comes to that so I don't know...and please tell me you are not going to crochet a bikini - I just turned green, pea green with envy! You got skills, girl!
