Merry New Year!

Hello All!

It's good to be back, although we'd actually expected to be back with bags, alas, we are not. Linda's computers are down (which makes it a little difficult to upload photos), Jenn V. made a bag, but then sold it to a co-worker before it could be posted, Grace is reducing her production level a bit (probably to spend more time with her lovely grandchildren), and my sewing machine is enjoying it's spa vacation so much that I'm not sure it's coming home (it's been in for servicing for two weeks now).

Our 40 hour road trip gave me lots of time for crocheting: 1 newsboy hat, 2 dishcloths, and 2 scarves!

Did anyone else accomplish anything over the holidays?

Well, over the holidays I received the lovely bag that I won several weeks ago and, WOW, WAS I IMPRESSED!!! IT'S GORGEOUS!!!!!! It's so beautiful that my husband told me to find out what other bags you have up for auction so that he can buy one for some of the "other women" in his life - his daughters, mother, etc. Heehee!

So thanks for the beautiful bag. I'll be watching your site to see what others come up and perhaps become the proud mommy to one or two more!

Oh Miriam - how sweet of you. I'm glad you liked your bag.

How did you take that picture of you crocheting?? It looks like the man (Mr. Jennie C?) is driving, landscape is moving by...who was in the front corner of the vehicle to take a picture?? (could well be some sort of technology I am woefully unaware of)

New technology ... NOT! My man just extended his big gorilla arm out and snapped a pic!

Any hopes for the year? I would wish you much energy and inspiration and encouragement.

Thanks Joyce - I'm planning on sewing some more - but the dang sewing machine shop is holding my machine hostage. I guess I'll just keep crocheting for a few days more!

My computers are back up! FINALLY! Stay tuned, gals (and Miriam's husband) for more bags on Tuesday. They're coming along real fine down here in sunny Arizona. More swimming pool pictures to follow. (I lived in BC and Alberta for 10 long, cold years, so my teasing is justified. :o)

Rachel and I were going to knit a whole family of snow people for Christmas decorations. Well, between all the family coming to stay with us and life in general, we got one snow person knitted and it still needs a nose, mouth, and hat!
