crafting, reading, cooking, living the retirement life

Well, most of the vestiges of Christmas have been packed away, the last of the company has departed, the leftovers are kaput, the vacuum has been run. When it's over, it's over. Now onto a bright new year. I wish good health for all in blogland. I am having a hard time getting it in gear in the sewing room. Don't know what's up with that!!! My "on" button has been connected to the crochet hook lately! For some unbeknownst reason, I just want to sit and crochet. I think it might be because it is so rhythmic and soothing--and repetitive! Maybe I just need that after all the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I used to crochet a lot when my sons were young--it was cheap and very portable! Then I lost interest for many, many years. Well, a couple of years ago I got hooked on making those darn fun fur scarves! The patterns and yarns for crochet nowadays are just so yummy. Lately I have wanted to crochet granny squares, of all things! I'll post a photo of the afghan when it's finished. I'm thinking of calling it, "The Sixties Called"!!! I also love crocheting those cute little flowers to pin on a purse or jacket. And I want to get involved with a group here in KC that knits and crochets caps and blankies for preemies at a children's hospital. Then there is that Q-hook afghan I started last winter... I fear that my yarn stash will soon rival my fabric stash. Oh, brother.
