WIP Thursday - Not Ready for July

This is another birthday heavy month for my family, with a minion, a sister in law, a brother, a bff, some cousins, and of course MY July means we are on the downhill slide to Christmas!  So not ready...
I don't have a good daylight pic of the finish, but the colors are amazing and this was just a few days ago!
I did get a few things closer to finished this week, like the corner to corner blanket I started in the winter...I only let myself work on it when I felt like crocheting, and all that is left is to weave in the ends!  It's a totally cozy and pretty blanket, and I used up 11 1/3 skeins from my stash! :O  Now to do a few more and I might have to start buying yarn again!
Kind of loving the polka dots and the roses!
The Necessary Clutch with my awesome Star Wars Fabric is done, just need to get some pretty pictures and drop it in the mail!  I cut out a second one to make at the same time, but after screwing up the pockets and then ripping the fabric instead of the seams, I had to stash the second one until after I get the Sew Along out of the way...Speaking of the Sew Along, we are still at the very beginning, so feel free to join in at any time!

Current Projects and Orders:
