I was thrilled to get an email notification that this package arrived safely at its destination yesterday.  I've not had the greatest luck with the postal system this year.  This package had a bit of a children's literature theme.

I posted this in the Boxing Day CAL but I know many of you who donate to the doll donation read here not there.  Aztec Wishes were all the doll donations go to made the local news here.

I love the blanket and I am sure your grandson is going to love it.

Bailey4 I could not get into the article.  I gather the kids were happy to see you walk in.

Getting ready to shut down for the night.

Good night everyone and we will see you in the AM.

My last Christmas box left Sunday filled mostly with dinosaurs but I did include my mandatory Christmas ornament for little hands that they can't break.

Thanks Chris.  That was really a nice article.  It is so good to read something about kids doing more than something bad.  It is a bright spot.

Christmas Baby Bib

I made one of these a couple of years back but in my hurry to get the package out never got a picture.  I can't believe I am working on stuff for next year already.

I just finished a very large Pooh Bear.  I think after I get pictures I will take a couple of days off to relax the wrist and hands.  It is 18 inches tall and it is made with WW yarn.  I had to order more stuffing, as this took the last of what I had.

Can't wait to see the pictures.  I can see the need to rest the hands.

So sweet!!!

I recently spoke with another crocheter with a large family and friends list: she crocheted 19 afghans over 2019 and had everyone put their names in a hat and as each name was drawn they got to pick which one they wanted - I thought that was such a great idea!

Oh, that has to be adorable! Can't wait to see it! And yes - depending on what I've been working on I have to rest my hands too at times. Good thing I also love to read or I'd be going crazy with the inactivity!

Here's Pooh

I finished Pooh and got pictures in the same day.  

I like the idea of the names in a hat and let them pick what they liked.  God Bless her 19 afghans.

In a couple of days, I am going to start doing things for next year.

We are waiting for the last of our packages to be delivered to us today.  It is things for us.

Well, I am off to watch my Football.

Have a fun day everyone.

He's adorable.

The thought of 19 afghans makes my hands cry.  I love the idea of the names in the hat and letting everyone pick though.  That makes it fun.

My coworkers are doing Christmas at the preschool after break. It snuck up on all of us. I took advantage of sales at joann today and bought yarn and buttons to make snow globe ornaments. I will probably bake bread for the breakroom as well.

Sounds like fun ratdog and it will be less stressful. 

Got my hooks today.  I need more hooks like I need yarn.  Well, I can always use yarn.

Here they are:   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07G11B3F9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

My SIL & BIL gave me a gift card to Amazon, so I can get what I want.  This was the first thing I bought.

I love gifts like that when I can try something I wouldn't normally treat myself for its fun.

Mary Jo, very interesting hook set. I got an interchangeable set from Walmart some years ago, but one of the ends wouldn't work--a little defect in manufacturing. I have one lighted hook that I tend to forget to use. Love that the set is rechargeable. Please give us a review when you've had a chance to try them out.

I can't wait to use them.  I must find something that used sport or ww yarn.  I will let you know.

I am a gadget person.  I had the other lite hooks, but ended up giving the set to my GD.  I had these on my wish list, and when I got the Gift Card, I went right to them.

I will let you know how they are.

Have a fun day.

WOW! They look amazing...and a great improvement over the first lit ones. Have fun playing with them!
