What I'm working on & what I finished!

This top is actually done now and I love it! S3690 is a great pattern! Since it has princess seams the FBA was a breeze and it fits perfect! Which is very hard for me to accomplish with a woven top. I have a feeling princess seams are my new best friend.
I took a pic of the little tucks on the shirt... cute detail and not over whelming on my top heavy body!

I am now making the shorts, and I have the short vest cut out and the pants! I'm basically making this whole pattern... except the longer vest.
Getting my moneys worth on this pattern!

In the crochet world I'm working on this cover up top that was in this months Crochet! magazine. I have the front top half done!

And this wrap which was from yet another magazine from Sheila at Sheilazcrochetz. I have put those magazines to work! lol!
I need 38 of these and so far I have 18!

Another cross necklace I made... easy... remove some links on the chain.. add the crystal beads.. add cross!

This super easy shrug! Made completely from DC's. I made this in just 2 days!

And also finished this top... its S3634. I have made this top 5 times now... with and with out the crowl neckline... short and long sleeves. Great fitting basic knit top!

In conclusion.... I've been staying busy! And loving every minute of it!

My Goodness! You are a busy lady. Your shrug is such a pretty topper. I just finished the vest and pant of the simplicity pattern. I think about trying the blouse. May be I give it a try as well.
Happy Sewing & Crocheting!

Productive much?! That print on the knit top looks like a lot of fun. And I'm still amazed at how quickly you've nailed this crochet thing!

Wow, you are super crafty and fast with the crochet. Impressive. I'm getting back into it now after a few years of neglecting it for knitting and I forgot how pretty it can be! Nice work!
