Hello everyone! I've decided that I'll just do one post this week, as I have some important visitors coming at the end of the week--my parents! We are all really excited about their imminent arrival, but I really do need to crack on with the cleaning. I'm so easily distracted though, because the SUN is out. It is gorgeous and I'll have to go and sit in it and knit for a while later. First I really should clean the bathroom though.......
I've been pretty monogamous to my leaf cardigan, though it has been hard. I've been tempted by all sorts of other projects, but.........I'm making good progress and I really want to finish it. The back is done, the left front is done, the right front is 80% done! I hope to be working on the edge ribbing by the weekend.
I've also been working on a bit of crochet. I'm making another handbag/clutch, with the hopes of listing some in my shop. They are fun, and great to make while watching t.v. This one is Girlie Camo, and I'm just finishing up the lining and flower in the next few days.
Lastly, I was working on Isla's quilt again (until I ran out of thread and had to wait for more to arrive..... I'm still waiting). But I had a bit of the sewing bug so I made a wrist lanyard for my keys.
I am forever losing my keys in the abyss that is my purse, so I figured this would help me find them. I keep my car key and my house keys separate (the only way to lock the house door is with they, so it normally just lives in the door until I leave the house) so I'll make another one today I think, for my car key. I used some fabric that my Grandma tie-dyed, and instead of a D-ring, I just used a regular circular ring, because that is what I had. This was a fast and satisfying project.

And that's all from me for now! Take care, happy crafting, see you next week!
