SheilaV kicked my derriere as per usual this morning. My legs were jello the last .25 miles of the hike. That's not nearly as bad as the aftermath I will feel late tomorrow. Oh why did I slack last 2 weeks?? No matter, pulling my bootstraps up now to kick it in to gear again.
I've been getting pretty crafty around here. I'll share a few updates. There's a lot more in the queue and I'm going to a crafty party all day Wednesday to welcome in the new year. SO excited. I haven't seen these friends in quite a while. OH! And how can I forget Saturday? It's another big step day. An old college friend and I are walking 18 miles from Hiram to Braswell, GA on the Silver Comet Trail.
Now, back to the crafty update.
First, I needed new dishcloths. I whipped this one up in a fast garter stitch and promptly ran out of that color so I finished it off with a stripe of white. Please ignore the dirty dishes.
I made a couple of these ruffle scarves as gifts lately. I bought a new shirt last week that I thought this color would go really well with so I had to make me one. I made this last night whilst finishing a movie (Waking Ned Devine). I love how the colors are so wintry...snow white and brown for the bare trees.
We also blew our own glass ornaments again this year, our 5th annual. It's a tradition we started when we moved here from a place down the road called Orbix Hot Glass. I love the artists there so much. Good, good people and uber talented.

|Our collection is growing.|
I also finished a hat for a friend as a nursing graduation present. I hope it fits!
And a few walks in the woods to round it all out.
Wishing that your holidays are just as magical. We've had some challenges thrown in with my car breaking down and a doggie who got sick. But it's already better or soon will be. We knew Holly (doggie) was getting better when Maggie (doggie #2) stopped dropping kibble near Holly and took her rightful place back on the doggie bed (instead of relinquishing it to Holly all together).
Peace, love, and light.
P.S. I finally saw both Despicable Mes...I want to make a Gru scarf now. Wonder Boy already called dibs. Heheh.
