Finish crochet projects and upcoming projects

Hey blog world. Well it's now Saturday I haven't been that busy this pass week like I was the following week.
Not much sewing this pass week. I said, I wanted to take just a little bit of a brake to get a flew crocheting done.

So I whipped up a small tote bag from the yarn I got from Annies Attic. All done in half single stitches. Didn't have much yarn so I tried my best with the yarn I had.

Just a simply tote done in a couple of hours. Working on it every now and then.




Also

Another purse I made. This purse had my wrist hurting a bit. Because I had to double strand the bottom up to the middle and that is a lot on my wrist there. My wrist still yelling out in pain lol.

The whole pures

Also want to introduce a board I started called Women that Crochets

I started this for us women that loves to crocheting hoping to keep this going. I invited my blogging buddies so hoping you all join. If I forgot any of you just click HERE and join in. I want this to be a small communite of women where we can have fun showing off our crochet, have contests, swaps and so on. So for those that is on my Swap Swap Gals blog. I am totally sorry. I totally forgot about our swap blog. So I want to keep it going but, with this board. I believe this board is bigger and easy to get around. So the more people join the more I am able to start having more things on there. Looking for volunteers to mange a couple of contests and swaps. I think if others are able to mange then it will help keeping the board running well and so that all of it wont be just on me to run the board.

Upcoming things I want to put on the board.
Crocheting Contests
Holiday Swapping

I have Stitch A Week already listed on there as a group. For my memebers have any other groups you would like to mange just let me know.

You can post pictures of your crochet work. Links to your updated blog. Post free patterns that you written that you like to share or get tested. There are a couple of groups that will be listed. You can start discussions in the forum and so on.

Hope to see you all there.:)

Very pretty bags! I hate crocheting with double strands - it's definitely hard on the wrists!

Your bags look great! Can't wait to see how your last bag will turn out.
