Year Of New Beginnings 2015

The new year is almost upon us, 2015 where has the time gone….This is a year of change for me of new beginnings, it will be good, I can just feel it.  I am starting the new year out by getting involved in a Crochet-A-Long on Ravelry it starts on January 1, 2015. This is a Block-A-Month Crochet-A-Long that will last all year, it sounds like a lot of fun and it will give me something to write about. I have never been involved in any of the internet crochet activities; I am looking forward to it. If you want to participate yourself here is the site address: 2014-crochet-block-a-month-cal

I am also getting ready for the January Crochet Challenge that The Crochet Crowd is hosting. Get ready-set-go is what this all feels like hahaha; here is the site address for the challenge: Crochet Crowd January Challenge .

And then there is the Rose City Yarn Crawl I am really looking forward to this one, I think this is going to be a blast. The Yarn Crawl will be March 5th thru March 8th 2015, it will wind around to all of the yarn shops in the Portland Metro area. I ask you, “Is there a better way to visit all of these shops, surrounded by lovely yarn lovers such as yourselves?” I think not,…. at least not in my case. There will be fiber lovers from all over the world coming to Portland for this event. Here is a link to a map of the names and locations of the shops that are involved in the yarn crawl and here is the web address for Rose City Yarn Crawl.

Hope to meet you out there, either on the web or on the crawl.

A Journey Into Gadget Hunting

I’ll tell ya! WEW! What an experience, this is really fun I’m spending hours on this, it’s crazy. I added a gadget from a company called Filament to my blog today, It’s a great way to show all of the other sites you can connect with me on, (or most all anyway), and I like the way it hangs to the side of the blog and follows it down. I could change the colors on it if I wanted to and the shape, I like the round shape and well…maybe I’ll change the colors at a later date. It took me a little while to figure out how it worked………only because I really don’t know what I’m doing haha! I figure if this 50 something woman can figure this out anyone can…..right, right. The instructions on how to do it are really pretty good and the question and answers for problems are very good! I’m liking putting this blog together, I’m feeling pretty up-town right now. Sooner or later I will start throwing crochet and other craft projects up here I promise! But this ol’lady is enjoying the……. just enjoying the process right now.


I used filament on my first blog at: check it out if you like the blog is still there I don’t use it anymore though.

Here is the address for the Filament/Flare:
