The City of Crochet

Crocheting...an escape from everyday life in Europe as I face the perils of yarn shopping in a foreign country and dealing with all of the crazy looks I get for crocheting & knitting on the public transportation system.

New Year....New Resolutions

Tis a new year….and I am already breaking my resolutions!  Every year I make them with all the best intentions in the world…lose 5 pounds….ok 50 to be honest, craft more, blog more often and even stay in touch more with friends.  And then, every year I start to break them right away….at least I am consistent right?

 

Okay, I've not broken all of them….yet.  I stepped on the scale this morning, saw that I had gained 8 pounds over the past 6 weeks.  Darn trip to Belgium…WAY too much good food there…then add in all of the holiday eating…well it's no wonder I went backwards on the weight loss!  But at least I know where I am starting the year at and I know that I can lose those 8 pounds again…the other 42 might be more of a challenge…well….really the last 12 will be the challenge…lots of running in my future I think!

 

Blogging more…well this one is always my challenge.  Best intentions in the world aside, I just don't have the time to spend on the computer once I am out of work these days.  Okay…spend on the computer blogging that is.  I spend plenty of time on facebook which is how I am trying to stay better in touch with more friends…I can cyber stalk everyone to my hearts content.  What did we do before Facebook?  Oh, that's right, letters and the age old process of gossiping…so did you hear about so-and-so?

 

Crafting you ask?  That's right, this is a crafting blog!  I continue to work on a doily I started in Belgium…talk about procrastination right?  I actually am making progress on it though!  Over the holidays I made up some knitted Korknisses (Christmas Ornaments made from Wine Corks) and crocheted Snowflakes although I never did find the time to block the snowflakes!  I started finally the Star Afghan again for the Family Room in colors to match the couch.  I am also in the process of starting to make lots more yarn food.  Decided that I needed a collection for my house and that the boyfriend's niece will soon be old enough for her own collection of yarn food!

 

Pictures?  Right…ummm…will see what I can take the next few days and find some time over the weekend to post them up!

 

Happy New Year to all of you!
