Not much I can show right now -- at least until after the Christmas gifts have been received -- but I can show a fun shawl I made.
The chilly days require a little extra to keep a body warm -- so I made up (crocheted) a nice soft, warm, cozy shawl. The top photo shows it finished -- I omitted the fringe the pattern called for -- don't like dangly stuff around my hands/wrists when I am typing, etc. This is a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn -- if you would like the pattern, click HERE. There is also a free pattern for the knitted version.
I like this one so much I already have about 12 inches done on a second.

Remember all the Pay It Forward sign ups that were going around about a year ago?
We all had a year to send out the hand made gifts for them.
Today the mailman brought a wonderful package - it was a PIF gift I had forgotten all about.
Thank you so much, Maggie -- I love the pin and I have a very special place to use it but can't show until after the holiday as --- well, you know, holiday "secrets" LOL.
What a delight.

I wanted to share with you the beautiful birthday gift I received from Lynn S.
We met each other online several years ago (time flies) and have had a special friendship ever since.
She took an old antique shoe pin cushion and refitted it with her lovely work.
Just look at the beautiful Brazilian embroidery Lynn has done.
Thank you once again, Lynn. I will cherish it always.

Well, we did receive 4-5 inches of snow -- the first snow is always so pretty -- OK, we have our snow, next Christmas and then get on to spring. :-)
I AM beading -- but with the colder weather, am thoroughly enjoying knitting socks - I just learned how to do it and just keep knitting and knitting LOL. Here is my newest sock along with the start of it's mate -- should soon have this green pair to keep my feet warm.
