'What I've Been Up To' Post

 First of all, I'd like to apologize for the glare in all the photos. It has been especially bright and sunny here these past few days and that means the monsoon season is finally over! I'm not complaining or anything but it could be nicer if it's not THAT hot! Anyway, this cloche was ordered by Diane from the States. I ordered the yarns from Ayza which arrived a day after these yarns.
 She requested for burgundy color and I like the texture of this yarn. Chunky and soft.
 There were 4 skeins in the package and it took 11/2 skeins for the cloche and the leftovers I'm making this slouchy beanie. It's still not finished yet, maybe later today.
 You know I can't just make ONE project at a time. There usually are 3-4 projects going on at the SAME time. I made a Head Hugger yesterday and had finished it but it looked kinda wonky. So...I frogged the whole thing! Really annoying, that!
These bags are in queue and will get finished depending on my mood :p Hopefully I don't start on a new one!
And these are some of the fabric samples I ordered from Fabric Fanatics last week. They are really cute!! Hazel and I oohed & aahed looking through them! I'll use them as lining for pouches and such. I need to get motivated doing these things but I always get side-tracked by other things like reading e-books, watching tv etc.
And just for fun and to celebrate Valentine's Day(which we don't), the FIRST person to comment on this post will get this Red Heart Garland!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

The hat is gorgeous. I know what you mean about having more than one project you're working on. I try to limit myself, but there are so many things I see and want to make. Happy Valentine's Day!

Lovely crochet hat and hearts, Aisyah! You're having fun with yarn and fabric (even if it's just there to look and feel!). Have a great week :-)
