New Year's Crochet Resolutions

My dear blogging friend "Chatty Crone" posted this on her blog, and
I just had to put it up here.. it is how I felt on the Monday after Christmas
and I just now finished up the final clean up after having everyone
over...phew.... but yes give me those sweets!!! lol....

Does everyone like the new blogging posting format? I haven't heard anyone
say anything on their blogs about it but I am still on the fence
with it????? It seems better on one hand but a little awkward on the other...What
do you think???

And has everyone thought about their New Year' resolutions...

Here are my top 5:

  1. finish all my WIP putting them in the order I want to work on them
  2. use my "special" yarns and stop saving them 
  3. Try something new,maybe a free crochet patterns or wonderful books                
  4. re-do my craft room and move all my bags from downstairs to upstairs
  5. Make a charity project or visit a rest home and show some my craft
I'm trying to keep it simple this year.....what's your top 5????

Happy New Year from Foxy & Chloee & Crochetoholic

Christmas Last Minute Details

I am getting the last bits of my Christmas details done....

Yesterday I finished up my wrapping all my gifts and filling the stockings and mailing out the last of my Christmas cards!

Today I made my Banana Bread and my mom's recipe for her "Magic Cookie Wonder Bars" today...Yum Yum...
grocery items waiting for the big day

wonder bars and banana bread done

several years ago I made a family cookbook for everyone and
this is mine and I love it

these are for my kids to take home

the roasts are all ready to bake

my kitchen Santa watches over my baking
I got him back in the 70s

this is my mom's actual recipe she wrote out for me

 I also got my roast to make for Christmas....

I actually bought two because one was just not big enough....which I figured will work out really good for those that like rare and those that like well done. :)

Now these candies are really good I love Dark Chocolate and the Pretzel M&Ms are fantastic....yummy!!

I still have to put up my village

sorting through my photos


hanging the photos

 a neighbor's gift

my "fav" indulgence

putting family photos on foam bells to hang

 And I wanted to share with you a cute cartoon that I got from my friend "Chatty Crone"

Thank you Chatty

The Coat - I found this cute and thoughtful story over on Sweet Bee Buzzings' blog. It is a warm and truthful meaning of what Christmas is all about. At least how it should be, it is a children's story that shows a young boy giving selflessly to another child in need it is not a new one and has been around awhile, but always worth viewing again.

This is a really pretty "Winter Song"

Thank you Sweet Bee Buzzings for the link

Christmas Gifts Crochet and Shells

I made my g-daughter star fish and then went to the shell
shop and got some real star fish and glued them in the middle
she can hang them up or lay them on her dresser her
room is all done in sea shells and beach look.

this is the orange one

the green one

the blue one

then I went and got her a shell that opens to put the cross
 earrings I made her inside

this is the headband I made not sure who gets this

I added an antique button I had

I made it with Anne Blatt yarn 

this is the cross I added to her headband

the side view

the flower

I also used a light row of ribbon thread

I like this

I was so excited when I found this shell box to put the star fish
doilies in 

all three together

the top of the box with the shell 

I also got everyone a stocking with their initial

I found a cute postcard to add
