#39 Christmas is over!!

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas...Celebrating the Saviors birth, the lights, the snow, carols, cookies, great food, family, games.....but sometimes getting back to the real world is just what you need after so much indulgence!!! lol

We had an ice storm right before Christmas and the power was out here for 5 days!! Thank God for generators! Or things would have been very bad for the farm, and the animals.... not to mention heat for us. I know many people went through Christmas with no electricity, and some still don't have it back on! Crazy!

I made cinnamon buns for Christmas!!! They were fantastic!!
 I lined a pair of the mittens I knit!! Light fleece, they are so warm and soft!

 Made a couple of fingerless gloves!! Having a lot of fun with double pointed knitting needles!!

                  Tried one sock pattern and ended up ripping it out                    
 and made this pattern instead

No sewing went on during Christmas,but can't wait to get back at my WIPS!!!

Coming up soon

Mark your calendars:
