It's been a while...

Ah, so many things have happened in the past month or so, I don't even know where to begin. First we had our car accident (which we are still dealing with, and we still don't have a second car to call ours), then my computer crashed - with over 2,500 pictures on it. Mostly of Baby E. I was so upset. My sister's friend revived the computer, and saved all the pictures though! I can never thank him enough! Here are some other things I've been up to.
I made the Santa hat for Baby E to wear with her Christmas dress. I just realized that I don't have pictures of her actually wearing the hat, so I'll have to get one.

This is the bedspread that belongs to my neighbor. Her great-grandmother made it. Isn't it beautiful? From wear and tear, the delicate yarn (thread) had torn in a couple places, and I told her I'd be happy to repair it. Most were very small repairs - just joining stitched that had come loose, but there was one place that needed some pretty significant help. I had bought the smallest crochet hook I could find at the time, and I wasn't really happy with the repairs in that one area. Since then, I have found even smaller steel hooks, and have added them to my tool pouch. Next time I see the neighbor, I'll let her know I'll be happy to attempt that area again. It was such an honor to work on this. I can't imagine the hours, and the love put into the spread by her great-grandmother.
I've also finished an afghan for a friend, who's expecting a little boy. I'm so excited that it's completed, and ready to ship so far from the March due date! Usually, I'm pushing it to get them done.
I've also been working on Baby E's dress, and am making felt Christmas stockings for our little family, for next year. I'll post pics of those projects next time.
YammaDaddy and his parents got me a Cricut for my birthday, and man, am I excited! I'll be making my afghan tags with it, and cannot wait to learn all the cool features!
I'm so sorry I didn't get to post a special Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year post, so here's to a happy January!
