This New England girl would have loved a trip to Blissdom but with all that happened at the end of last year I knew that I would not be able to make it. Maybe 2011~ I will be dreaming of joining all the great bloggers, meeting them IRL for the first time. It would be great.
Although I was not able to attend we did enjoy a blissful and productive weekend here. We were able to do some shopping for things our new puppies needed. We bought great harnesses and a double leash and took them for a walk. They were so happy to see us and loved every minute of it. We spoiled them with some gourmet doggie cookies, which they loved. We can't wait until the ground isn't frozen and we can start fencing. Once that is set we will bring them to live with us.
I finished the two scarves for Craft Hope project 6. They will be on their way tomorrow.
This is the first scarf. It was crocheted with a crossed double crochet stitch.
They requested some scarves that can be for young men also. I love this ribbed patterned. This is also crocheted. Now my son wants me to make one for him.
I found this great yarn at Joanne's and fell in love with it. I love this neutral color and how very soft it is. Organic is a plus. I am working on a ribbed scarf for myself.
We spent some time at the library and I just couldn't choose which books I loved most. I left with a great big stack. This always happens when I go to the library. I chose these amazing crochet books. I can't wait to pick some projects. It is hard to choose because there are so many great ones.
Couldn't pass this up. More about it in another post.
I love making bread!!! It is so wholesome and I enjoy every step of the process. Taking a freshly baked loaf of bread out of the oven on a cold winter day is so comforting. This great book jumped out at me from the shelf. It is filled with great information and pictures.
Dreaming and planning my garden for this year. This is a must read and own. It's on my list of must have books. Such great information and pictures.
Love this book. The Farm Chicks are the best.What could be better during these cold days and nights. Snuggling up, staying warm and cuddling with some great books. Crocheting a bit here and there and definitely a latte to help keep me warm.
