Hello to all!! Welcome to the new year!  I hope everyone has plans to improve themselves and the world around. I fully believe its a new beginning each year!
This year, as always, will focus on being healthy and doing the best i can to improve our futures!
So far this week I have worked and almost finished the 3rd out of 5 rows of blocks on the  knitted baby blanket. (will post picture when i start on the 4th row)
I have began sewing welding caps for my cousin. Last year i made him a few and he requested more. Almost done with cap #1. (will post picture when finished)
I received some oil pastels and pastel paper as a gift and i have found a wonderful tutorial on youtube to make a beautiful sunset scene.  I do hope to attempt this soon.
I am getting all the finishing touches done for the school my son is entering, and my own schooling. We are both excited, while scared at the same time of the changes!
I am going to attempt to post at least weekly here,  if not only just for an update,…
