Happy New Year

In a few more hours we will be saying goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016.  So, it’s out with the old and in with the new.  Not sure as to when I will post this but I wanted to wish you a Happy New Year.  The year flew by with a few personal ups and downs along the way.  My greatest moment was watching my son receive his college degree from Radford University earlier in the month.  Tragedy struck our family five days before he was to start college and ended with a victory for 2015.

R.I.P. Devin McDade Thompson, your son made it through the storm.


Making and sticking with goals for 2016 will be an ongoing battle.  I know I can’t write a list of goals and stay with it for the entire year.  So, I have to set either monthly or biweekly goals.  Many of us have set goals for the new year and many of us did not complete one stinking goal.  I want to be on the winning team and complete at least one monthly goal.  Having a hobby adds disorganization to my life.  I get so involved with a hobby until that hobby has taken over my house.  I have more skeins and copies of patterns that can keep me busy for a few years.

First things first…….

Dedicate a crocheting area, in my case I will have to include my sewing things also.  That was the easy part.

Now my biggest challenge and main goal for January will be to organize my yarn into categories.  In a perfect world everything would be arranged by weight and color.  This is the look that I’m going for.Yarn OrganizationIt’s going to take some baby steps to reprogram myself to be organized.  Out with the old and in with new habits forming.

What are some of the things you do to stay organized?

Did you know I’m on Pinterest and on Facebook!

Again, Happy New Year!

I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn.

If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much.

To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.
