Next order - Fruit Punch Tote

A brand new Jo-Ann's Fabric store opened near us last Friday. 

 Hubby drove me over there after my physical therapy session today. 

 It's a nice huge store - half is devoted to sewing and the other half is for crafts.

While wandering through their yarn section I spotted this adorable free pattern, Fruit Punch Tote, in such yummy colors it made my heart sing.

I immediately tore off a pattern and stuffed it into my purse to bring home. 

 After supper I kept thinking about the tote while watching TV. 

Lordy... I couldn't stand it any longer and went upstairs to look at my yarn selection.

I finally chose these five colors from my yarn stash:

-Caron Simply Soft - in watermelon and sunshine;
-Loops & Threads Silky Soft in orange blossom;
-Caron Simply Soft in soft blue and limelight.

I hope I haven't jumped the gun by showing you my next project. 

 It would be VERY embarrassing if I couldn't figure out the stitches in the pattern. 

 LOL !

Well...duh...I guess I better get busy and try working up one of the squares.
