Coming along nicely

Both the latest bargello cushion panel and the crochet cardigan are coming along nicely. But that didn't stop me buying some more cotton yarn to make a little purple bolero to go with a new sundress! I looked at loads of patterns but opted for my favourite method of working - make it up as you go along! I'm basically making a U shape,then fold in half and stitch up the sides to make armholes, then work a border.
No photos of it yet but I do have a couple of others to share.

 Firstly, the crochet cardigan. You can see where I added some vertical rows to the front edge, and I've done the first few rows of the lace "skirt".

And here's my Bargello Flame panel. I decided to do all the bright red curved lines first, then I can hop about the canvas working different colours here and there, as the mood takes me. Or when I run out of a colour at work, I can carry on with another area. The colours work very well together though.

Not sure how much I'll get done this week - I have a week off work and the weather is finally perking up just a bit so I hope to get out and about. And as I want to wear my new sundress I need to get on with the bolero! 
That's all for now - back again soon. 😊

PS Would you believe it, the sundress I bought only 2 weeks ago - and it was new in - is now half price in the sale!!
So I bought another one and will take the first one back! Well I haven't had chance to wear it yet and haven't even cut off the tags...
