Ready for the New Year

Happy New Year to all of my blog friends.  The last couple of years have given me a fresh appreciation of all of the moments that make up our lives. Love one is our mission and our gift.

This little Snowman pillow, one of the first things I ever hooked, remains one of my favorite winter pieces. Can't recall the designer, but I love the whimsy.

I am spending the night with three of the grands so that their parents can take a time out.

Blake joined us for pizza and then went home to be with the dogs at our house, but not before a little Bear dance.
This is one big puppy when you consider that Blake is 6'5"!!

My mother always said it was bad luck to leave the Christmas decorations past NY's, so I took care of that today.

This is my first knitted cap, made just before Christmas using the Magic Loop method. It isn't great, but Blake can wear it this winter to do his chores.

The finished Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt was revealed today and I love it. 
So glad I started it, even though I have only finished the first clue. Hope to find some dedicated stitching time this weekend.

Take Care,

    What a fun little pillow. I've not seen that pattern before.
    That quilt is amazing.
    My mom always left decorations up until January 6. I don't wait that long, but do wait until after the new year.
    Happy New Year, my friend.

  2. Such a great pillow and love the thought that a small beauty Cardinal could push over a snowman. Love the pillow.

    Wishing you, Blake, your grands and friend a great 2016.
