still here.....



I just couldn't do it anymore this morning
not
one
stitch
could
I
do
I think I am almost at the end of it
and I may never pick up a needle or hook again
may
never
I have "crochet wrist and elbow"-itis
and
I know a lot of you out there have it too
why can't life be like a 22 min. TV show
start to finish and
poof it's done!!

:) :) :)

Just to do something a little different
I looked in my paper file in my
"Favorites" folder
and found the snowflake link from a couple of years ago




and made a couple of snowflakes
I don't have as much paper as I used to
I guess I used it all last year
and I don't know if I kept the ones I made
will have to look and see if they are anywhere
but these were fun to do and it got my mind off the hooking for a bit!!!

I got the sparkly candle holders out
and the other day I got some of those battery operated votive candle thingummies
I'll make a little set up and show you one of these days
it really really works....

!! :) !!


this is the Christmas begonias
with a little bling
!!!


and this is Rudolph before he hits the booze
 to get that famous red nose of his
!!!!



Of course the Christmas cactus is cooperating
NOT
it exploded the other day in all it's
neon pinkness
when I bought the bloody thing it was supposed to be
WHITE
so it's doing it's little thing over there in the kitchen window
shining brightly in the morning sun
YUK!


GEE
I hope the amaryllis
isn't going to work against me
it, too, is supposed to be white
but who knows what it will turn out to be
but who cares, just as long as it grows



I think I am coming down with something
probably got it from someone in a store
wish sick people would stay home
or it's cinnamon poisoning from that
useless craft store
I do use the complimentary wipes they supply at the door
but who knows who touched them last!!!
OK
'nuff griping
hot soup and jammie's is what I need
and
NO
MORE
HOOKING!!!!!

LOL
