Crochet and other stuff

Its been a week, the excitement of the crochet olympics has worn off, what's next? Seems I am at a lost again on my crochet projects, starting a few things and not finishing any :( I started on a bolero, but its turning out too small. Also started another drawstring bag, and I'm not really into it. Now I saw another "sak" bag and decided to do that and it really takes a lot of time and takes a lot more effort because the stitches have to be a bit tight. But I know the result would be rewarding. So I hope to finish it in two days and I wanted it to be a surprise. The pattern is available online, for free. Photo shows the flower I designed to embellish the bag.


Btw, to those who ordered some threads from me, the threads will be arriving to me this week. Sorry for the slight delay. Will update you soon on your specific orders, thank you so much for waiting.

Photo shows a sneak preview of one of my surprise items. Two of this are now on its way to that special person who is supposed to receive it.
