An update on my project

I added a few rows of Homespun in a blue/purple/green mix but it doesn't show up very well in the photo. Now I'm working several rows of blue and lavender alternating in 5 stitch increments. I haven't decided how many rows of this I'll do. It's not much progress but I said I would post photos as I went along so here is the next one....



I didn't actually work on it very much yesterday....only a bit in the evening. I was messing around with a knitted vest that I had thrifted. Its an Arizona brand and the pattern is used inside-out. This is what it looked like before....



This is what I ended up with....I turned it right-side out and made a small tote. I'm trying to figure out an easy way to attach the leather belt to make a strap.



Here is another of my purse projects. The colors are off on this one. I need to find a strap that is more of a hot pink rather than red. I haven't sewed it on yet so no problem. I love the colors in this one.



I had another "flash of brilliance" this morning so if I can get it into some form to show you that will be next....hopefully! That's my biggest problem....too many ideas and not enough time to do them. Plus as I mentioned previously, once I see that I can actually do something then I lose interest in following through with it. Very bad habit!!

  2. The striped purse....is that tapestry crochet? I can't even imagine juggling all the colors!

    I too suffer from losing interest in a big project. I try to find a reward for finishing a project - like a new book! Of course, sometimes the reward comes before finishing hehehe (I just ordered the other tapestry crochet book from Amazon!)
