Playing a Little Catch-Up


Happy New Year!!  I am so sorry I haven't blogged till now.  I got sick on the 23rd of December and it took me quite a while to recover.  I just wasn't up to much of anything until recently and then today I finally got some photos uploaded so I could put together a post.  I thought I would start by sharing some of the things I made for Christmas.  Above are the tiny stars I was crocheting to be a bunting, however, that idea turned out badly so I stuck them onto this tree and thought it looked cute.  And here are some of the things I made for gifts:

Crocheted earrings from Crochet Embellishments Craftsy course with Linda Permann done in embroidery floss.
Mom's finished Jaywalkers.
Cloisonee Mittens for my sister - the non-stained glass version.
Beautiful bouquet of flowers my Dad got my for Christmas.
The flowers are on the floor because Dad wanted to make sure I could see them from my bed since I was in it for days.  He wanted me to still be able to enjoy them, isn't that sweet?  I really am so very Blessed by the wonderful family I have!

Well, that's all for today.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season and that this new year is off to a great start for you.  I will be back (hopefully) Monday.  Have a great weekend.



  1. Oh no! I'm sorry you got so ill! Jow awful for you and my gosh, how sweet of your dad. You certainly got a lot accomplished for Christmas presents. The stars are cute on your pink tree.

  2. Glad you are on the mend. So many friends have been beaten down with this bug. One of my brothers had it and said he can't remember the last time he was that ill. Sounds like you've been surrounded by love.... and that's certainly wonderful medicine!
