Random Stuff

I made another Christmas ornament. There's something so satisfying about 5 minute crochet.You can find the pattern here. The "garland" is ribbon I bought from Michaels a couple of years ago.

I'm a contributor on a new blog, A New Stitchy Start 2015, started by the lovely Tammy of I Want to Do One More Stitch. It's a cross stitch project progress site (try saying that five times fast!) and has several contributors. I haven't added my first post because I can't decide which chart from the Super Duper Ultimate Crazy Challenge I want to start first.

I ordered my yarn for the Mini Rings of Change CAL (only 21 days left until we start!) from Yarnspirations. I had originally planned to make it a stashbuster, but I loved the sample picture so much that I ordered the Brights colors. Luckily, they were half price on Cyber Monday.

 Some symbols of me. 
I'm a wife and mother (my wedding ring and photo),
a follower of Christ (my Bible),
a homeschool teacher (the book),
a jewelry lady (the bracelet),
a crocheter, cross stitcher, and card maker (the crafty items).
The glasses are so I can see all these wonderful blessings in my life.

That's about it around here. Poor Alex got 6-month checkup shots today so she's tired and grouchy. Hope is hanging out in her room drawing and enjoying the day off from school (we have a four day week). And I have to go get ready for work.
Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)
