Christmas 2010 Project Pictures Take 2

The afghan for my lovely cousin Kyla, the lion ornament for my niece Abby, and the heap of squares that will be my sister's afghan by no later than her birthday (January 20)

Christmas 2010 Project Pictures Take 1

The owl for my cousin who likes the series by Kathryn Lasky, the chicken for my mom, cats for my littlest cousins, a fish for my other cousin because she asked for it, & my sister's his & hers ornaments. Allow me to introduce Stephen & Betsy Claus.
And, yes, I know I have a lot of cousins.

Tis the Disappear!

I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last update. Let me assure you that I have not been idle. I am slowly finishing the Christmas gifts. The only one that won't be done by Christmas is my sister's annual afghan. She's getting a picture of a heap of squares and an IOU. Hoping to have it completed by her birthday (January 20). It should be doable. The majority of the squares are made. I just need to run in ends and sew them together.

The trend this year has been buying more and making less. This was not my choice, but entirely my fault. I'm determined that next year will go much smoother. I'm finally settled in a position and town that I love. Next year, I'd like to set some goals to keep myself on track.

I'm retiring my crocheted purple tree decorations after this year. After I finish my sister's afghan, I plan to make brand new decorations for my little tree. I have both a color scheme and a theme. The Colors (all Red Heart Super Saver): Light Coral, Honeydew, and Lavender. The Theme: Candy Confection. I've located many interesting patterns for candy, cupcakes, and even fruit. I'll keep you posted.

I purchased a new camera after Thanksgiving. Expect project pictures soon.

I probably won't post again until after Christmas. Here's wishing you and yours the joy of Christmas. Merry Christmas! Until next time, happy crocheting!
