Happy New Year everyone! It is a new year and I am so excited!!! This year is my year. I am doing wonderful great things and bettering myself!!!
Things have been so crazy since I last posted. I feel like I fell off the face of the earth! Things went all haywire when Sandy visited. I just realized that I have not checked my email associated to this blog in a month or so. I have had so many phone issues, I forgot Im not getting the email on my phone right now. Thats how I stayed connected before.
Sandy made a mess you all know about it and I was also with out power for 9 days. I did crochet...I worked on my Ripple. I had not touched her since Jan 2012 and I made a bit of progress. I needed something happy in my life and well there are tons of colors, it kept my spirits up. I pulled her out lastnight and added two more colors in the sequence. I have 6 more total colors to add, which is 24 rows and then I have to decide on a border. I am so excited to have almost completed my first blanket for myself. You all know how it goes, always making for others and not yourself.
My last post was about the blankets I was making for my nieces and nephews for Christmas. I finally and I do mean FINALLY finished them. Such a great feeling. I need to stop putting so much pressure on myself! Over Thanksgiving I made a baby blanket for my bestfriend and his wife who are expecting their first baby this spring. I also made two hats for baby Emma as well. I have to run in the ends and get it packaged. Baby blankets are so QUICK. I make the summer ripple. I will have to link later.
I am currently working on a special project for someone in my life...I am excited to be done. I am more than half way. It entails a bunch of counting so last night I took a break from it and pulled out my ripple. I of course want to make another ripple and use some of my Lucy stash. Yes I have quite the stash! My niece got the lucy granny stripe and I did not want to give it away, but she LOVES it.
There are so many things I want to make and always feel like I have not enough time. So many people I want to make for. Back to baby blankets...there are a total of 8 babies being born this spring that I know of. I luckily got one of the seven done. I get to make two baby boy blankets and 5 girls. One of which is done. I have a friend who lives in Wisconsin and she is having triplet girls. So I am excited to see what I can come up for her.
Oh my gosh I could go on and on. I guess my next post should be something with pictures of what has been keeping me busy! Im coming back ladies!
