To entertain you while you wait for our annual Christmas poem (you ARE waiting, right? With bated (baited?) breath? Ha!

Something I posted on Facebook: Noticed today that one pant leg was a LOT longer than the other one. Of course I became convinced that my hip surgery (from 5 years ago) had suddenly shortened my leg. Mike (not being a drama queen) measured the pants. Yep - one inseam was over an inch longer than the other one. So I guess I'll cancel that (mental) order for a shoe insert.

My most recent Facebook profile picture: (Nance, please note the mascara flake under my left eye. Do not purchase Revlon Ultimate All-in-One mascara!)



Stuff I’ve crocheted while I haven't been blogging:








I'm mostly done with blanket number two. And yesterday I crocheted through the end of November on that temperature monster. It's looking like the Year of the Blanket won't be finished until sometime in January. And even though I looked at the post about the 2017 blanket crochet along, I am NOT going to participate. Nope. Mostly because I have my eye on a totally different kind of blanket. Ha!

OK, I need to get out of here & go finish my Christmas shopping!

  3. You HAVE been busy! And no, you won't be doing the 2017 blanket crochet along, because you'll be too busy doing another Project 365. I've really missed you doing this!

    I actually cringed when I read that. I've got to hit the grocery store on the way home Friday morning to replenish essentially like milk, eggs, and bread. I'll be standing in front of the entrance as they turn the key to unlock the door. I simply do not want to be anywhere near that place once normal day shift people start arriving, it will be a mad house.

  6. Your crochet is outstanding. It reminds me of my mother who was also good at this kind of craft. She was in fact highly addicted to it, until her eyes failed her due to glaucoma.

  8. I have the hardest time with mascara flaking & giving me dark(er) eyes.
    That's funny about the pants. I would have been freaking out.

  10. Oh, hell. I had such High Hopes for that mascara. Even participated in a marketing campaign for it (via Harris Polls online). Sigh. So far, sticking with my Cover Girl green tube, then. No clumping, but the tubes go fast.

    Do you steam block your crochet?

    1. I use Cover Girl professional? It's in the pink tube. I like it pretty well, but I bought the other on a whim. And it was more expensive!

      I wet block the squares for the blankets, but don't usually mess with anything else. However, if I'd had time, I should have blocked that wrap in the last picture - it really needed it. But I finished it the night before I had to mail it - no time for it to dry.

  11. You look postively impish in that photo. I really like the beige/tan/ivory/whatever blanket. I like the color, and I like the pattern. Very, very nice!
    Merry Christmas to you both!
