Don't worry, I'm still alive!

Hello all! It's been a while, huh? Well, I can't say that I've been doing much. This has truly been a summer of leisure. I haven't even really crafted all that much. I knit way more when I was working full time than I do now and that's insane...because when I was working, I always said that it was working that got in the way of my crafting and that hasn't been the case. I went home to visit my sis and her family, I've spent almost all the other weekends with Christian's family, and we spend as much time as possible with Wolfen at the dog beach.

He really loves going there. The first few times we would be there for hours cause we couldn't figure out how to get him back on the leash (all of his obedience flies out the window where there are other dogs frolicking about in the sand & water)but we finally figured out that if you get in the water when he's swimming back to shore to grab him, he can't dart away. (Can someone please sign us up to have Cesar come and whisper to Wolfen to come back to us when at the dog park/beach?)
But I do have a couple FOs to share. Both of them were started when we moved back in the end of April and just recently completed.

Here is the Juliet cardi from the Debbie Bliss Rialto book. I used an 80/20 pima cotton/angora blend by Ardadia. It's a smidge too big but I can still wear it.

This is a bag pattern from Suss that I made with Suss Sparkle and lined with some fabric I found on Ebay. The button and handles are from M&J Trim.
