 Grin Hey ya'll! I so want to do this again this year. Last year was a big bust. Ended up losing my job of 12 years. Took 4 months to find gainful employment. I kind of spiraled down into a pool of despair & depression. But I can happily say that things are looking much better these days. I have my application in for my former job. Just waiting to hear back from them. Until then I am continuing to learn how to live on 1/4 of what I used to make. If it wasn't for my family I would be homeless & dogless. I'll never be able to thank them enough.

This year I won't be making a list. I'll just report what I've made. Don't even think I'll be keeping count. The main thing I want to learn to do this year is uploading photos. I have a camera somewhere. Just have to find it. And then research!

Already completed a new crocheted satchel bag for my job. I'm a cashier and I can keep a little bag with my necessities in it.

Also completed a new skinny scarf for myself. Working on a hat to match. Also in the works are some crocheted produce bags to use when buying groceries.

I'm only up to page 9 so far. But you guys have been some busy bees!

 Grin Just checking in with you guys. There is some awesome stuff being made!

I haven't had much time for crafting.

These last 4 days off were spent working on public relations. Spent some much needed time with my bestie. Went out to eat & then clothes shopping for me! I don't do that very often. Then I spent a lot of time with my family. I just really needed that. I am lucky to live in the same town as most of my immediate family. But with my work schedule...I feel like I just don't see them enough.

Still working on a couple of throw pillows...one for me and one for my bestie. Now I know the offenders where I work use map pencils to dye stuff (even though they aren't supposed to). I'm wondering how to do that but I can't ask them how they do it. I'm thinking that would be a good way to color coordinate the inserts for these pillows. Crochet just doesn't lend itself to just stuffing.

Another question.....Is 44 too old to be calling my best friend my bestie?

I second what everyone else is saying. This is way cool! I can't wait to see the finished works of art.

A Pretty Mess - I'm loving those memory pillows. And, heck yeah, I'd leave them out all year too!

Those popsicle people are just too cute! What a great crafty future all our little ones have.

 Cheesy Nothing new to tell you guys about. But I do have to share something that happened earlier this evening.

My Sister, Niece (9) & I were visiting my parents today. While sitting on the couch my niece noticed that one of the throw pillows (made out of a towel) was coming undone along the seam. She mentioned it to me. I suggested that she get her sewing kit out & fix it. Between me & my mother helping her with threading the needle & putting a knot in the thread, she was able to fix the seam! You should have seen the look on her face when she finished. It was a wonderful sight. I'm so proud of her!

The blue camo yarn strikes again! Now I am making a crocheted round pillow to go in my living room. All the cushions that came with the couch & love seat are square. Definitely need another shape in here!

That mask was great!
