The Summer Vest is finished:

And so is the Wrapped in Tradition Lace:

I'm working diligently on the Botanica Medallion. I'm about 3/4 done!

And last, but not least I'm working on the Origata Pillow for a really fun class in August.

I've finally chosen my colors for my Great North American Afghan and will be starting very soon. I've really missed making a square every month, I'm shocked to say.
