What a Nice Surprise!

A couple of weeks ago a package came in the mail from Australia! Jan sent both Woody and I a nice surprise! What fun we both had opening the packages!! Thank you Jan! Jan is someone whom I have gotten to know online over the past months and am very glad I have! Here are some pictures of what she sent! Woody enjoys playing with his toys..loves his treats! I love the cats wall hanging too..awesome!

I am determined to learn how to knit a pair of socks. I started this after New Years! YUP! I am still on the first sock! I started it three times, tore it out, and now am starting it again, for the fourth time. I really have not been feeling well, but will get it...really will...if it takes me all year oh well I will learn it for sure! Hopefully down the road I can show you even a half of a sock!
Until tomorrow...

Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year to everyone! All the best for 2009! We are just hanging out today....relaxing. I haven't posted in the couple months...due to a relocation, thus packing, unpacking etc., the Holidays, and the ice storm we had here in NH! It has been a little crazy! I am still getting my sewing room set up. I developed pneumonia so have to recover from that first.

I have been learning to knit socks..well I am working on my first sock. It should be interesting. MY hubby says that the sock will end up to be a huge sock, so it will be used as a stocking for Christmas of 2009! I beg to differ my dear hubby! He says that when I started Kate's quilt it was to be a double size. It turned into a queen/king. I tried didn't I? and it turned out 'out of this world' she loved it! Here it is all finished!

I am thrilled with the way it came out. Now I am off to practice knitting...I still have projects to work on, UFO's, but will wait til I feel better.Once again Happy New Year!
