I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas Holiday and a safe and Happy New Year.
I've not forgotten you... you've not heard from me, simply because I was TRYING to get up a free pattern at Christmas.. then when that did not happen; I attempted to gather together a free pattern for New Years..
problem was that there is just not enough time in the day to design..
For Christmas, my parents came in. Of course it's always a pleasure to visit with the parental units.. but it does tend to add a wee bit more stress to the holidays as you want to make everything so enjoyable.. well, at least that was MY holiday.
Then, as they left (which was actually a day earlier than they had planned), we got a Nor' Easter that came up the coast of the US and created havoc for several days after. Right down the road from me, there were 2 homes which caught on fire due to flood waters. Now, when I say flood waters.. we are speaking of 5 to 6 feet of water. It is the price you pay (so they say), for living close to the ocean.
We escaped unscathed, but "Daddy" was very busy working 18 hr shifts.
With all this excitement, I've found myself longing for directions from other pattern writers to get my fiber fix!! (Yeah.. I am actually following - stitch by stitch, will wonders never cease? )
Here are 2 of my works - the Booties/Blanket are for a Co-Worker/Student of the Hub .. and the hoodie (which is actually done in pink AND purple) are for the people - as they wanted something to keep em warm so they could play in the snow. (Now all we need is the snow instead of the flood waters!)

I am working very hard to continue to bring you fiber goodies - it's a new year, and and I've cleansed my mind of past issues.
I will update as time permits! I hope to see you very soon!
