What's in the Project Bag?

Hi everyone. I hope you enjoyed my Work that Stitch Wednesdays. I think the research and tutorials I found will really help me when the time comes to begin the Tree of Life and Enchanted Garden Tote projects. My goal is to make a small throw blanket from the Tree of Life pattern and frame it. I have the perfect size frame that I think will showcase the blanket nicely. This will be a more Autumn project since I will be working with 100 percent wool. The weather is becoming way too hot to begin working with such itchy and heavy yarn.

I have been going through my stash and trying to decide on the perfect color combo for the Enchanted Garden Tote project. I have narrowed it down to a couple of color schemes and will begin this project in July. I think this will be a nice size project that I can work on just about anywhere.

So What's in the Project Bag now? I am still working on my Diamond Blanket and nearly have all my full diamonds complete. Once the full diamonds are done the others will be so quick. I am loving the colors I have chosen and really cannot wait to begin the joining process. I know this will become very tedious so this is why I am taking my time with this blanket and enjoying the process.

I found the cutest tank top crochet pattern on Craftsy the other month. Yes I have had this pattern for a month now and am just beginning it. I am using Cascade Sateen yarn in this wonderful denim blue. The pattern is by Adorish and is called The Ventura Swing Top. This will be my first venture in crocheting a top. I am hoping this will be a quick project, but you just never know until you dive in.

Enjoy your week and be creative!!
