Yes, I'm still here! I've been taking a big break from blogging, facebook, and other computer things that were using up time (not wasting, mind you, just using). I am amazed at how much I accomplished. I organized closets, spruced up bathrooms, had a houseful of family at Christmas time, took stuff to Goodwill, and even read a book! Now tax season is starting so I might not post again for awhile, but here's some stuff I've been up to.
The book I read was "Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay. It was wonderful! I highly recomment it.
I was down sick the week after Christmas. I knitted and watched the movie "Young Victoria" about 8 times! I'm knitting an afghan for myself (really). I'm doing simple garter stitch squares and will sew them together. Here's what I have so far.
Bob and I took a day and went to a great antique mall. There was so much cool stuff, I wanted to buy everything. I was frugal - all I bought was this 25 cent card of old buttons. But I love these buttons! They'll embellish some handmade pincushion I imagine.
