I'm finished with the length on the crochet lace shawl, and now comes the hard part... the border. I've been playing with it for a while on my swatch and I just haven't been happy. I think part of it is my hook size. I have something in mind, but it just seems sloppy. So I'll try some things today, and hopefully finish it up this week so I can block it over the weekend.
Matt's Sampler Cardigan is still progressing nicely. I have maybe 5" to go on the back. I'll then do the pockets for the fronts, block those pieces, seam the shoulders, do the buttonbands, then pick up stitches for the sleeves and work those top down. Hmmm, that sounds like a lot more work left to do then I thought. Here I was thinking it was getting close to being done!!
I did a little work on my Etsy shop yesterday, and I discounted my last 2 remaining tote bags. I hope to get back to sewing this fall (after I do a HUGE clean up in my sewing room... let's not think about it. It gives me nightmares) with some new totes, and in more sizes.

Gena just thinks the whole thing sounds like too much work, but wake her up if there's a squirrel in the yard.
