Happy New Year!!

It's the first day of the year. We did the normal New Years day meal  and had most of the family over for dinner my daughter and her fiance, my sister and her husband and one of my niece's. Today is my sister and her husbands wedding anniversary 28 years today. I've added a few rows to the Diagonal Comfort Blanket it is a new blanket in a solid color. I still can't bring my self to rip of the one I  have been working on for months. I have a yarn shop in High Point that use to have a knit and crochet dr, it was only $5.00 per hour. I will call and see if I can bring it in on Saturday. Still listen to the second book in the Fifty Shades series and still don't understand the excitement. I am ready for a new year of crafting and gardening. I not sure what I should do about my soil it is in bad shape, but I might not be able to resist trying again this year . My Totally Tomatoe's seed catalog arrived in the mail a few weeks ago and I am ready to order  they have Tomatillo seeds! .

The last day of the year!

Wow it is hard to believe that it is the last day of the year. I like to think about my progress and if things in my life have changed since this time last year. My crafting really has not progressed , still knitting a lot of dish cloths and baby washcloths. I did finish one knit baby afghan.  I have read 29 books this year, listen to I think 5 audio books and started 3 books that I have not finished yet. No progress on becoming a better blogger. I blog less this year than last. I did not go to any crafting events this year. It has been a really long hard year. I had to buy have a new roof and just scrapped the money together to get a new hut for my hot water heater. It is on the outside because the house is so small, it has to have a metal structure to keep it dry and unexposed to the elements. Spent a day or two with out hot water. I hope next year goes better and I have a less to  repair. I have a bottle of champagne chilling ready to toast the new year! Happy new years eve crafting!
