Wow, has it really been this long? I logged on this evening and truly expected to find that my blog had been deleted by Blogspot or Google or whoever the Blog Head Cheese happens to be! I was truly ecstatic to see that pretty much everything was still the same . . . even the same followers. Thank YOU very much!

Not worth going into a lot of detail. "LIFE" has just gotten in the way, and I've had to put my blog on the back burner for quite awhile. I've continued to crochet, but not nearly as much as I would've liked. I'm working two jobs now . . . giving up my full-time work-at-home job for an honest-to-goodness, REAL job, in a REAL hospital! When I took on the full-time job, I committed to my previous "at-home" job through the end of the year, and have not yet decided whether I'm going to continue after January 1st. The extra money comes in handy, but I'm beginning to feel some burn-out . . . working full-time downtown, then driving home and sitting back down at the computer to work another 2-3 hours. It's definitely a bittersweet thing!

Anyway, something prompted me to get online tonight and check out some of your crochet blogs. I want you to know that I've missed you all terribly, but just haven't felt that I've had the time and energy to contribute anything worthwhile to the blogging community. I can't wait to jump back in and catch up on what's been happening with you over the last 4-5 months!

I promise to add more information and pictures soon. Tonight, however, I just wanted to get back on and say hello and wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve . . . lots of things to do with my daughter, Hunter, presents to wrap, last minute grocery shopping, and a big get-together at my oldest daughter's house to top off the evening!

Looking forward to visiting with you all again in the next few days! Hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas!


  1. You have NO IDEA how thrilled I was to log on and see a post from you . . . I had been worried that something had happened and had no idea how to find out.


    Hopping you and yours have a safe and blessed Christmas.


  3. I know what you mean about life getting in the way - I am making "tentative" plans on cutting down my blogging time because it does take up a lot of my day! I enjoy it too much to quit altogether!

    I understand about not wanting to work from home after working all day ... I just spoke with my family in Germany and Germany (as many other European countries) have so much more "legal" holidays and vacationa time than here. It's a crying shame!

    Oh, well, we can only do what we can do, right?

    I want to wish you and yours a very merry Christmas and blessings to your pets as well!

  4. I hope to see your beautiful crafts of Christmas in the next posts. I wish all happy things will come to you in this holiday.
