Since January, I haven't completed anything. I know, I know, I'm totally slacking. But I did manage to start a really cute little bag called "Sweet Hearts Bag" by Debi. The pattern she gives is actually a two-for-one pattern. Within the download, you can make both Sweet Hearts Boot Cuffs or the Sweet Hearts Bag, which I decided to try my hand at. The pattern is really cute and I totally should have finished back in February, but... Yeah, I'm a tad lazy and I did want to line it before I attached the handle. I just have this fear that anything I put in it will either fall out or stretch it out of shape, so I need help making a liner (which is where my handy hubby comes in! :D). I didn't cut my yarn off after every row, like Debi did. I HATE, with a wild passion, weaving in all those little threads, so I figured I'd just carry my yarn up and around. I think it looks pretty good none-the-less. If I remake this bag, it'll definitely look so much better.

Besides those two projects, I'm still working on that "fantastic" black belt for my husband. I didn't realize how much I would come to hate the thread he chose for it. Held double, that yarn hurts my fingers more than I ever thought it would. I have also decided that if anyone wants a belt like this, they'll be paying well for it. It's a nice looking belt, and it's pretty sturdy too. Again, I seriously need to find my camera so that I can post these things for you to see!
Until next time, my dear readers! :D
