Hello Dear Friends!

It seems I am making progress and getting a few things done!  We are snowbound right now... and that helps!

Lately, I have been spending lots of time just mindlessly crocheting.  I do it in the evenings while watching TV... I do it during basketball practice... I do it during piano lessons.  Honestly, I am getting bored with it... but I still keep doing it.  Who knows why?

Here are another Baker's Dozen of dishcloths/Spa cloths... and another Spa Glove...
 I'm not really sure what I will do with all of these... but I'm thinking they will make GREAT gifts!


Recently, my dear friend Ginger hosted a giveaway on her blog.  She gave away this wonderful needlepunch kit... that she designed... and sells on her website ~ Prairie Moon Primitives... along with oodles of other great patterns, kits, and yarns!  (She sells on Etsy too... here is her shoppe.)  

Friends... working this kit up was JUST WHAT I NEEDED!  Last night when I punched this piece... and I did it ALL IN ONE EVENING! ... I felt like I was on CLOUD NINE!!!  Ginger, thank you for sharing the kit.  Thank you for the wonderful gift!  I loved working it... and I know I will be punching away this evening too!

 Ginger dyes some awesome threads.  She includes them in her kits.  They are they same thickness as DMC floss... but they are a soft, spiral of wool  (or something that feels like wool).  You should give them a try if you haven't already.

Before I draw up another pattern though... I have a work space set up in our storeroom to slap some paint on my recently aquired junk finds.  *GRIN* 
It is a little cramped in here...
And a little chilly too...
But I'm going to make it work... and make some more finishes.

Wishing you all warm smiles...
