I signed up for Secret Pal 7. You get assigned a secret pal with a knit/crochet interest to pamper for three months or so. Sounds great...in theory. I have been assigned a secret pal that is a knitting dynamo. I swear, this woman has lightening fast hands. And the projects she completes. Holy moly! I'm still using training wheels as far as crochet goes and my secret pal's got sweaters and socks and hats and you name it. How do I pamper someone who is so far ahead of me on the curve? I don't even know what she's talking about most of the time when she blogs about her projects. oy! I think I have gotten in WAY over my head.
I got an email from the secret pal who got me. Hi secret pal! I promise my blog won't all be depressing and boring. I've got to get a more positive attitude. I've got to move forward with my life. New year and all that sunshiney stuff. Hopefully crocheting will distract me enough to keep me from looking back too terribly much.
I did my first two snowflakes last night! I have to get to the craft store and get some Elmer's and some glitter so I can block them and show them off. I'm so excited! A new obsession in crafting!
Plus, I marked myself down for a February project on All Crafts for Charity. Arkansas Children's Hospital! We're going to make things for all different types of kids too...not just babies...so it should be really fun. Now I just need some inspiration for what to make. hmmmm...
Well...the new receptionist is making the rounds to say hello. I better not be blogging when she comes in. Talk at ya later!
