It's a new year

It's been a long time since I posted anything. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and I wish you all the best in the New Year.

My son and family visited for Christmas and New Years and will be travelling back to their home in Newfoundland on Jan 13. Three glorious weeks with the grand kids and the reason I've not been on the computer.

Shopping in Powell River is limited but I did get a great deal on Christmas fabric, $1.50 per meter, hard to believe. I'll use this fabric to make Advent Calendars for next Christmas.

I started crocheting a lap blanket with left over yarn, no real pattern, just whatever is in the yarn bag.

Good seeing you and Art today (in different locations). I'm crocheting my first item, I guess it's never too late to start. I found a craft book at the Economy Shop that had a pattern for a simple afghan. i like it because it isn't open and airy. My mom is the great afghan maker, but I thought it would be fun to have something to pick up at the cabin. - Margy

That looks like a nice crochet pattern. I have loads of odd balls of wool so I should start something similar. Thanks for the idea!
