Happy New Year

Wow - Christmas has come and gone fast. Now we look forward to a new year and all the surprises it will hold. Last year had a few surprises but we made it through. The biggest one was my husbands health. In July he was really sick and ended up going into the Saskatoon University hospital by ambulance with severe chest pain. He was diagnosed with Myocarditis, inflamation of the heart muscle caused by a virus. He was off work for a couple weeks. He needed that time to rest and recover. There was no damage to the heart but he still needs to know his limits. He's been good since but he does still have mild chest pain but very rarely. There is a less than 20% chance this will happen again.

This year I was excited to start this blog and promote my crocheting. I love it and can't wait to see what will happen this year. I'm going to start on a few new things and change a few things too. The first is shipping. Now that I've sent a few things and learned a few tricks, I'm going to decrease my rates. The first item is $3. If you purchase 2 items shipping will be $5. If you purchase more than 2 items, I will let you know what it will cost.

Thank you for your support. I'm hoping to do more giveaways throughout the year too. I will let you know when those will happen so you can tell your friends.

Happy New Year,
God Bless,

Jodi

Only 6 days till Christmas



I didn't think I'd say this with almost a whole week left but I'm almost ready for Christmas. More ready than yesterday anyway. I still have a few things on my list that need to get done, but I'm not stressing over them. I need to remember that this is Christmas - you're not supposed to get stressed. I'm trying to finish up a couple projects for my children and 2 nieces and get some baking done, a few more presents need to be wrapped and that's it - maybe that's too much for only having 5 days to get them done.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.

God Bless you all.

Adding a little warmth - Neck Warmer

If you are looking for something a little different than a scarf for your little one,
this would work perfect.
It fits snugggly over your head but loose around your neck.

What a Hoot!!

I decided to take advantage of some black Friday sales. Not living in the States this day doesn't usually excite me too much but I came across a few sales. I follow the blog Craftaholics Anonymous and she had some etsy stores offering a few black Friday sales. I've known about Inner Hooker for awhile - love her patterns but just never got around to buying any. Well, she was offering 4 patterns for $10 - what a deal. So i bought 4 crochet hat patterns- Owl, Fox, Raccoon and Skunk. So today I finished the Owl hat - it turned out great. I usually manage to make a few mistakes because I don't read the pattern right, but this pattern was easy to follow. Here are a couple photos of my daughter in her new hat.
