I finished my craft barter quilt this weekend. I think it turned out perfect, of course!
I also finished the little companion bags for my sisters. This one is for my older sister, done in the same colors as mine.

This one is for my little sister. I was a little worried that the colors wouldn't have enough contrast. But I think it's my favorite one! It was also done in bulky and the rest were done with worsted weight. It turned out a little bit bigger than the other ones and the strap seems to be just a little bit too short, but I have no yarn left to make another one. It can still be used as a shoulder bag though. And if the straps are pulled all the way through it works as a longer purse with a pretty secure closure (the same goes for the other ones).

Here's all three that I made, with mine on the right.Next up: I need to get some small needles and I'm gonna attempt some socks. Nice and small project for the middle of the summer! Quilt wise, I'd like to get to work on the blue and white quilt again, but it's just too hot. I'll have to go home tonight and look through my stash for the next project. Maybe I'll work on the shop hop quilt my mom got me at the Quilt Festival in Houston 2 years ago!! It's main fabric is a pretty burgandyish floral, if I remember correctly.
