The blanket is pretty and elegant! 

Thanks! An easy pattern too!

What an amazing ministry.  That blanket is beautiful.

Thank you! With Covid we took a hiatus but in January it will get going again. The lady in charge does a lot for the parish - this ministry is only her latest on the list😊

I love Richard Scarry books.  I started one project and realized it wasn't quite the project I wanted and then came across this pattern and it worked.

Adorable! And I love the other ones you posted...I can imagine the smiles when they're received...

That's super adorable! Are those eyes that you bought or are there buttons out there that look like that?

They are buttons. Found them on amazon after lots of looking there and etsy. Only issue I have with them is that they are pretty heavy.

A little new Christmas cheer for myself.  I got the tree up and my card wreaths.  The Christmas garden flags are out along with the Christmas elves out front.  Other than that I didn't do lots of decorating this year.  However, this doll project has kept me going in the holiday spirit through out the year.  Now I'm just waiting for the back ordered dolls to come so I can keep going.  I'm down to one and I'm hoping to use that for Valentine's Day.

Lots to Love 8" Elf

I have a couple of packages in the twilight zone also.  About 3 got thru, but the rest are who knows where.

That is adorable and so cool for a little one.

Quite here, not much going on.  Santa is close.

Have a fun day.

This is the last item that went into the missing Christmas box

Snowman

The package was supposed to be there on the 19th.  Good news tracking says it left MA yesterday and is now in CT.  Why CT I have no idea it went to Boston yesterday morning when normally it leaves via western MA Springfield for this destination.  Who knows.  This is an odd year for packages.

I've had limited time to crochet...but I've already started working on a few things just for winter to give away to others... It's not going very fast but I guess fast is not the plan the gift giving part I guess will be... I'm currently making scoodie's... my plan is only to use what's in the house but yet somehow I ended up buying two skeins of yarn to complete project 😂 6.99 each

That's a great idea to keep going with projects...I always try to work on decreasing my stash - but it always seems I need to buy more yarn to finish something! I guess that's how my stash keeps growing🤣

Hello and Merry Christmas to everyone!

Sorry that I haven't posted more but with everything going on it's been hard.  Here are a few last stockings I crocheted for Warmth for Warriors.

My Mom's package which was supposed to be there on the 14th is supposed to be delivered today but she's not home she's visiting my brother.:bang

The kids package which was supposed to arrive on the 19th is in the same state finally but has been to 2 different sorting centers in that state.  The shipping is just crazy right now.

My in-laws and DH's Aunt package have been traveling together (they live in same town) and have been MIA for days it was also supposed to arrive on the 19th.  It will all work out eventually but the one I was saddest about was the kids because there were Christmas books in the box.  Guess they will be good for next year.

Sorry Chris, but I could not help but laugh.  My package to Poland is still MIA.  The one to England took a week, the one to Ireland took 2 weeks.  Heck some of the ones I sent here in the states just got to their destination.  It is like a game of Where's Waldo.:rofl

I am sure the kids will love the books anyway.

It looks like travelling packages live their own lives 😁 We can write a book about it, a chapter everyone  🙂

But think, someone is sure the Christmas joy is over and then gets another surprise! Lucky her/him!

It's all going to be such a huge surprise!

Can't wait for 2020 to be over...we put away our few inside decorations a couple of days ago - just not in the mood.

At least I'm crocheting. I'm finishing a "NoHoles" baby blanket for the christening blanket group. It is making longer than the others but I love the pattern. Extremely simple...

Then I have some other odds and ends in a box that I want to get creative with - I may try freeform! 🤗

My decorations will come donw on the 6th.  I usually wait till the 7th, but lots of Dr. appointments.  Now a pacemaker check has been added.  This year just keeps getting better.  First my tree took a dive 3 times and had to be tossed, now the pacemaker machine is not working, so he can not send the report to the Heart Dr.  He will have it done the day he see's the Dr.  

Oh please make next year better.

Off to work on my afghan.

Mom's package arrived yesterday so only 3 more outstanding.

The FL packages took 11 days to travel from one NJ sorting station to the next NJ sorting station.  No idea where the NY package is other than it was last seen in Rochester.

Bailey, this has been a horrendous year for mailing things!
