December catch-up

Is it too late to tell you about events that happened in December because I was too busy before now? Nah, I don’t think so. It’s only the next month! December of course is a wonderful family time for us. My parents are in Florida this time of year, but it’s still a great time

Hmm … I guess I did make quite a few gifts this year. More than I originally planned. I forgot to mention last week that those coffee mug cozies I made – the ones that were in Green Bay Packer colors? That was left-over yarn from the Packers headband I made my husband. He seemed

One thought on “Welcome

  1. ROSEMARY says:

    Love your hat design and also the cowl. Is there anyway I could get the patterns so I can make them?
