I tried something different with the bows.
I like 'em. Less sewing...yes!
And the color is way better than the black and gold.
I had to roll up my hanks of Knit Picks Gloss Fingering yarn.
I bought four hanks of it and a pattern to make a shawl.
Ken helped me get it rolled up last night.
But right now I've been focusing on these Willow squares.
I've always thought it was such a pretty square for a blanket.
I'm using a Size F hook and worsted Red Heart yarn.
The pattern is in a book, 200 Crocheted Blocks.
OH MY GOSH! I almost forgot to tell you about this!
You HAVE to go look at this little bird on Instagram or YouTube or Facebook.
I'm obsessed with watching this thing!

Look at all the videos and pictures. He's so sweet! (She?)
It has a skin and beak disease so it won't grow feathers.
I love the videos of her hopping around just happy as can be.
C O O K I E S!
Nom, nom, nom...
I've never made these cookies before, have you? It's so simple. I followed the instructions HERE in this video. So quick and easy. I have to make 4-5 dozen cookies for my Homemaker's Club. Everyone will bring cookies and we'll split them up into 50 platters to deliver to every person who lives alone in our little town for Christmas. I thought I'd do a test run of this recipe before choosing it for some of my cookies. I think I'm also making some Snowball Cookies and some Pretzel Toffee Shortbread Cookies also.
I was talking to Sammi and told her Santa is coming soon right before I snapped this picture.
She knew I meant someone is coming, she's just wondering who Santa is. Hee.
My Amaryllis is about to burst open!
This is a light pink one.
My other one is red, but it's not coming along quite as fast.
I haven't gotten one Christmas decoration out yet. I've been so busy with work I just haven't taken the time. I told Ken we'd better hurry up or it won't be worth all the time putting stuff up and taking it down. It would help if it would just snow already. Come on snow!
