HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This is one of the few Year of Projecsts posts I’ve done live – ie I haven’t set it up ahead of schedule and let blogger auto-post it for me. I don’t know why – I looked at the post a couple days ago and just figured “eh – I’ll work on it later.” Well, here it is Sunday … later… and I don’t have anything ready *laughs*
This last week has been one free of crochet. I don’t know why – it just has. I have been knitting on a scarf for a co-worker (a paid gig) so perhaps that is why? I really do wish knitting went faster. Oh well…. I guess it doesn’t help that when I go through my project bags the majority of it is knitting.
I am hoping to pick up my table runner project again (you remember that one, don’t you?) I have made no progress on the table runner since last we met (late November, I’m guessing). But that’s ok. I got a ton of Christmas crafting done and crafting for the craft fair I participated in a couple weeks ago.
My dearest man went out today with my daughter (the model) in tow to take some well lit photos of some of the things I worked on the last couple weeks for the craft show.
This tam is actually one of my favorite items I made. I have no idea when or where I picked up the yarn, but it is a very soft acrylic with a slight shimmer to the yarn… which of course does not show up in the photos.
I ended up adding a bunch of the items to my etsy shop, if you are interested (linked in the right column). You don’t even have to buy – I was mostly just impressed with the photos the man took for me *laughs*
Oh well – today will end up being a pretty sedate day. Everyone is relaxing a bit. The kids don’t go back to school until Wednesday and I have tomorrow off too. I’ll be popping some of my Zesty Turkey Meatloaf into the oven in a couple hours so do know that in a few I’ll be sitting down to a nice, hearty home-cooked meal that is friendly to my weight loss adventure.
If you are interested in the recipe I’ll be making, I posted it at SparkRecipes: Family Size Ground Turkey Meatloaf
Have a great holiday and a wonderful 2012!
