Ok finally done with my shirt. I would have been done awhile ago but, due to be teaching this teenage girl how to crochet I fell behind on my own projects. I also decided to do this project and this project only because I do find myself doing 3 or 4 crochet projects at once but, I wanted to get this shirt out of the way before starting on something else.

Here go my shirt I so love it. Was glad to say I AM NOW DONE lol.:) I so want to make me another one like this.

Ok I have a couple of things I would like to start crocheting. I was going though my queue on Ravelry and decided ok time to try to get some of these out of the way. I found a lovely purse by The Crochet Dude that I would love to try and crochet up. The purse is called Chic Halfshell. :) That's one of my projects I would like to try to start sometime this weekend hopefully.

Also another purse I would like to try is by, Almondeyes121 from Crafters the purse is called Turquoise but, mines isn't going to be turquoise haven't yet figure out what color but, do have plans to try to do it. :)

Also I have a shrap and a matching newsboy cap I would like to do in navy color and white. I know I want to get started on the navy shrap sometime on Saturday. Haven't yet picked a stitch I want to try so was looking to get some help from you all with helping with some stitch patterns for my navy shrap.

Ok here is the first stitch that I thought would be great called, Snapdragon Stitch, I like the stitches like that it is open stitches. I practice the stitches and I can say I got it down pack. Just never tried the stitches on any wearables.

In picture below it's the one listed as number 56. Its the white block at the right edge.

Ok here is the second stitch that I have tried before on other wearables called, Alternate Mesa Stitch.

In picture below it's the one listed as number 57. It's the reddish block at the top left corner.:)

Ok thought I can get all my blogger friends helps on what stitch I should do on my shrap love to hear what stitches you all like the best. :)

You did a really great job on that! I love your stitch combinations.

What a great color combo and it looks great. As for the stitch I like its #56 - it looks like a shell stitch.

FYI, that chick on a halfshell purse is tiny. What you gone put in it? Cell phone, keys, and half a wallet. that's it. Can you tell I've made this one. I'll try to find the picture and post it on ravelry.

Love your new shirt!!! Great design and color combo! The purses are cute. I'll be anxious to see yours. New schrug ... I like the stitch designs you've picked. I think I'd try #56. Any of them would be fine! Some help, huh?
