"Another Year Over"
So I set my embroidery aside and went for my standby crochet needles and yarn. Corey's girlfriend asked for a pair of white and a pair of black boot cuffs. Out came the yarn and I made several pair, but not white or black. I played with the blue and went for a gorgeous yarn to top it with. they look great with denim. Then I found a rich burgundy and made a pair with a ripple stitch top and a headband to match. I forgot to get a picture. Finally I got out the boring black and white yarn and stitched what she asked me to make. That took me through the holiday. Crochet is mindless stitching for me. It's the craft I fall back on when I am under stress or just need to keep my hands busy.
So I'm almost back to normal now and have a renewed interest in my CQ blocks. Though I haven't completed the 2015 journal project, I will begin the 2016 project.
Wishing you a Happy New Year. If you party, please stay safe and have a great time.
