What's In My WIPs Bag

First week of April was holiday here due to holy week that Philippines observed yearly.  So, I took the opportunity to do some cleaning and tidying up since  I noticed that my hobby (cross stitch, crochet and knitting) things are everywhere.  Due to being busy, it is only now that I was able to post this.

I put my current WIPs in this paper bag although they are not all of my WIPs.  I've got so many scattered almost everywhere in the house.  That's what you get when you suffer from Start-itis, LOL! My Tropical Fruits cross stitch is not in there since it won't fit in the bag.


A crochet doily that needs only 4 more rows to finish.  Thread is Cebelia No. 30 and hook is Susan Bates No. 7 (1.5mm):

Royale crochet thread no. 30 which I intend to use for a future doily project:

More threads for the Tropical Fruits cross stitch:

Yarns and granny squares for a blanket project:

DMC mini cross stitch kit:

Japanese crochet book, mostly motifs:

Japanese crochet book, mostly doilies:

Lace shawl I started knitting a month ago, with cotton thread no. 10, and Knit Picks Harmony circular needles size 3.25mm:

My cross stitch glass set, reading glass+magnifying glass.  With my 43 year old eyes, this set is really a big help:

Can you see that my reading glass needs replacing?
This is all for now and thank you for dropping by, most specially for leaving your comments.

Hello Toni, it was lovely to see your blog top of my 'following' list:):)
I am glad your Tropical Fruits doesn't fit in your WIP bag:) Love the nearly finished crochet doily,it's so pretty.
I have decided to change one of my projects to 16ct from 28ct to save my poor 50+ eyes too much strain. One 28ct project is quite enough for them lol.
Take care Toni:)
