30 Dec

Well it’s been ages since I posted and I have no excuses except for being caught up in the Christmas ‘busyness’.

We had a lovely Christmas day….ate too much and enjoyed the kids opening their presents…we go in for Christmas in a big way here as Christmas and their birthdays are the only times of the year the kids get presents….even the big kid (21) loves getting his stocking in the morning…lol.

Here are some pictures to show what Christmas for a family of 9 looks like and also to prove that even 18 year old boys crawl around under the table looking at the presents…lol!

I am back into the crocheting and have been working on a blanket for Dad’s birthday which was on the 28th….I almost got it finished and was able to wrap it and give it to him, but had to take it back so I could sew in about a zillion ends and crochet a border. It is a simple hexagon blanket with bright colours and made in acrylic so they can throw it in the washing machine at the home without having to worry about it.

Here is Dad’s blanket waiting for the finishing touches…… IMG_2122 IMG_2123

Now I owe an apology as I simply ran out of time to do the free pattern I had planned for Christmas Eve, in memory of my sister…I do promise that it will come out in the future though…Hopefully I’ll be back to blogging more regularly in the New Year.
