Christmas is over......now I'm ready for Summer!

I don't know about you but that's exactly how I feel. I don't care much for the months of January February and March. April starts to give me hope again. Nice warm weather is soon to be.

Christmas was wonderful and got to spend it with my family. That's what it's all about for me. I've been sick and on antibiotics. Christmas Eve my daughter and I had a glass of wine....just one (1)!! By the time I got ready for bed I was covered in hives! Boy that was fun...NOT! So up until today I've been taking Benedryl....they seem to have finally gone away.
What I like the best about the holidays is school vacation! So for the first 3 days I was able to have my 2 older granddaughters here with me. I had so much planned...didn't get to all of it but sure did have a good time. Miss A completed her rug Hooking project that she started some time ago and has decided that she wants to make it into a "stuffy" so I'll put that together for her.

Winter Has Arrived!

Yes, as you can see it's here! Temperatures are in the minus and the snow is starting to accumulate. That means it's a great time to  knit do some applique embroidery and finish up last minute gifts. I've been down and out for the last 10 days. Good ole fashion head cold  or sinus infection whatever it is has had me punky!
"Learn something new every day" well the other day at my rug hooking group I was sitting with these 2 lovely ladies that introduced me to 2 new words or items you could say. They each had these cute little round containers with a cover with a round hole on top. What are those? An Antique Hair Remover. I've never heard of such a thing...in the nearly 50 yrs I've been in the beauty industry. So I googled them. Oh my! Now I'm on the hunt for one. Porcelain one would be nice. this one looks very much like the one she had. So the second thing I learned was the word "Chatelaine" A hook-like clasp or a chain for suspending keys,…

I am back at it...or as the saying goes "BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN".

As you can see from the date of my last post, 2016 has not been a busy year. Au contraire mon frere! So much has happened this past year  and i can't wait to share it with you. However i am not going to do that right now as I'm trying to work out some kinks in writing this post.  Not sure if its me or my computer that likes to jump all over the page when I am typing. So please bear with me.
I'm hoping that i will get some new followers but also look forward to seeing past loyal ones.
A Bientot!
