So Long 2015 ~~ Hello 2016

A glimpse of the end of 2015

Dottie Dog and Skye (the Grand-dogger) celebrate Christmas
Notice Dottie's smile -- that's because she got her favorite treat -- Marshmallows!

Stitched these earlier in the year and finally finished them in time for gift giving.

Crocheted 8 little red hats for the American Heart Association's Little Hats, Big Hearts project.

Dottie Dog found a small stream of sunlight for a nap.
(I wish I could sleep like my dog, lol)

Does your tree have a pickle?

Does your tree have a pickle?

Or a fancy spider?

We bought a fresh tree for the first time in about 15 years.

Some of my favorite ornaments are older than me.

Hubby snapped a pic before I was even done decorating.

Even though there is much to still get done,
take time to enjoy the season!

Not Even Gonna to Try to Catch Up

I thought I'd be caught up...


Not going to happen

So I'm not even gonna try to catch up, lol

Amongst the chaos of that thing called life,
I did manage to get a few things made these past few months.

 Completed several crochet blankets 
(yes, I was that woman crocheting blankets in August!)

This one was for my mom's 75th birthday in early November

One of several scarves I crocheted for charity.  
I also crocheted newborn hats for a local hospital. 

I even crocheted mittens!

Took a beading class
learned how to make stars

and beaded ornament covers

I have been stitching some as well,
but can't show any of that yet.

Still have so much to do and will be busy this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend!
