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.
