I've been dying to do a first post of 2012, so here goes........
I've made a new hooky scarf, now to be honest it was started last year & finished today
So i'm calling it a 2012 creation.
The colors don't look too good in the photos...... bad lighting!!!!
Granny squares in nice earthy colors & a cute trim
The edging took ages but I think I like it lots.
My dilemma now is do i keep or give it as a gift.....my sisters birthday is coming up soon & i would love to do a quilt for her.....BUT will i have time?????????
Also did some real simple wrist warmers over the holidays, you know small easy projects,
I think i hooked up four or five pairs, these are Ella's
(not a great pic, bad light these days)
All the girls got a pair & they want more...."a set in every color mom please" if you
I quess i have a lot of lovely relaxing crochet days ahead.
We had the loveliest New Year, I'm a new years day person, forget the night before
I just cannot stay up that late, not good at late nights. So after an outstanding church service we came home & cooked up the most delicious roast lamb dinner, can still taste it, followed by sticky Toffee pud & this
Pear & Almond tart, i kept back some toffee sauce & poured it over my piece with tia maria flavored cream......yummy!!!!!!
We only ate half so the rest is in the freezer for next weekend.
The rest of the day was spent, with just family, chatting & watching movies.
Who has seen Mr Poppers Penquins...... oh boy if you haven't you have got to see it, so good.
Hmmmmm how many of you have made new resolutions for this year.....I'm still pondering mine, have to think em through thoroughly before I commit heh heh!!!
I am def going to get fit again though, more walking, more cycling & maybe some Tae bo......I am sick of feeling sluggish so watch out.....here i come....do i sound convincing eh!!!!! Yeah right!!!!
Well on the menu tonight is 24.....Lauren bought the complete set for Aidan & I for Christmas....yep all eight series plus a feature......Lots of viewing.
All the best to all of you for 2012
Lots of Love Karen Xxxxx
