Happy New Year

I am excitedly awaiting the start of 2012.  Normally, the changing of the year is not that big of a deal to me but oh, 2011 was a challenging year.  I am hoping that the new year will be filled with happiness, health and peace - for all that I know as well as my own family.

Whatever you do tonight and tomorrow - stay safe and have fun.  I'll be back soon with some new additions for this blog.

Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone -

I just want to take a few moments to say thank you for visiting my blog and adding to my ever increasing enjoyment of blogging.  With lots of wrapping, baking and some last minute stocking stuffers to buy; and yes, some crafting to finish - I know I won't be online again until next week.  So, I hope you all have a joyous Christmas and happiness with your family and friends.

Sincerely -

Tuesday's Tallies - Still Here

So, I thought it might be a nice idea to make a quick post and say that I am still here.  I am crafting a lot for the holidays (mostly crocheting) and loving every minute of it! Unfortunately, I have nothing to show here on the blog of my WIP's though as my husband lost our camera in the middle of November.  I am an avid shutterbug and very sad about the loss and he feels really bad about it.  In fact, I have a feeling there may be a new camera under the tree for me on Christmas morning.  And if there's not - well, that will be all right but my husband should accept that I will be buying a new one in January.

Anyway, my main projects on the go are afghans for my daughters for Christmas.  I had started the blankets for them a while back and then took a break because I really didn't like the way they were turning out.  THne I went back to them but still wasn't head-over-heels for them.  THEN, I finally learned how to properly make a Granny Square.  I must say that I now understand why so many people love the beautiful squares.  Oh my goodness.  I took apart all of the work previously done on my daughters blankets and started over to make them both Granny Square afghans in their favorite colors.  Oh, and did I mention that this was at the beginning of December? I know, I am crazy but I am darn determined that my girls have these beautiful (yes, I am boasting) creations on Christmas morning.

I am also working on something for my husband but won't say any more about it until after Christmas.  There is a small chance he'll read this post and if he does - I don't want the surprise ruined.  And, as if I'm not busy enough - I'm making little bags or scarves for every female in our family.  Wow, it makes me a little jittery thinking of all I still need to complete in thirteen days.  I better get back to it.

I'm hoping everyone is having a beautiful Holiday season.
