Very nice! I love that yarn. It works up well. When it comes to crocheting, if you have any trouble, you can always look on YouTube. I have done it multiple times, lol.


That is very good yarn for learning with. YouTube has a lot of great videos, you might also want to look Tamara Kelly she has a lot of helpful tutorials on YouTube.

*building my shopping list* Lots of ideas, especially with pretty much all the ads out now. My SS is gonna love it (I hope!)... :trampolin

Is it wrong that I have spent more time and energy buying for my SS than for my family?!?!??!  LOL

I love Secret Santa's though and I don't know what took me so long to jump into it here.   :holiday12

I came home friday evening to a great surprise.  I'll post pics later but the ornaments are awesome!  Waiting to take pics until the tree goes up.  Thanks.

Thank you... As BF (and the deadline) approaches, the Firm would like remind those who will wait until Christmas to open their packages to please inform them that they have been received. They don't want to have to send out their new chief of security ;)

Also, now that it is starting to snow if there will be a delay in shipping please let me know ASAP. Let's try for no late senders though!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and stay safe on the roads and in the stores! I'll be thinking of you all as I work, lol.

I came home needing a little cheering up and that is exactly what I got. My first two Christmas cards arrived and one with a bonus recipe! Thanks for putting a smile on my face! :)

I received my Secret Santa gift yesterday. And it was definitely needed and much appreciated after the week I have had. (Medical testing and health scares.) I love my gift! There was a cute wicker basket filled with all sorts of goodies! There were 3 super cute cross stitch kits (Tinkerbell, a hedgehog, and a sewing one), a Starbucks hot cocoa mix, Lindor milk chocolate truffles (YUM!), a wonderful smelling Yankee votive candle, and a Bath & Body Works Winter Candy Apple lotion and fragrance mist. I am in heaven with my gift. Thank you so much, Secret Santa! You definitely made my day!

(I am attaching a grainy iPad photo until I can add a better one.)
