Happy Tuesday my friends. It must be a new year because I've been busy finishing up projects and beginning new ones. Before I start showing you all of my projects I just want to say that I hope you are all keeping warm today. I know it's bitterly cold over much of the U.S. today. We're at a balmy 22F right now which is a veritable heat wave compared to many of you. I have a fire happily burning in the wood stove and I'm cozy in my home for the day.
And now let me show you finished projects!

Projects, Projects, Projects!
The first picture is of the lovely pincushion that Taci made for the three of us girls at our bloggers luncheon. I've been so busy getting the mittens done that I haven't worked on anything else. Taci had the crocheted part done and included everything we needed to just stitch up the fabric interior, stuff it and then crochet around the edge. She even included the sweet little heart pins. Isn't it cute?
The next pictures show my little Chloe modeling the scarf that I FINALLY finished from the yarn Gracie gifted me with last summer. Isn't it beautiful? Chloe is a rather shy model. She always acts like she's in trouble. I just love this scarf/shawl. I wore it yesterday for the first time and it's so soft and comfy. Thank you so, so much Gracie! You are a blessing to me.
I'm also starting a quilt for a friend of Mandy's. She bought some of the material and I went last night and bought more fabric and the batting and thread. Here it is all stacked up. My goal today is to iron it all and cut the pieces. I washed and dried it all last night. Quilting is NOT my favorite activity but it will be worth it to bring a smile to her face.
Lastly is the crocheted blanket I started on Sunday. It's made of all cotton and in neutral colors. I'm loving it but I'm not sure what I'll do with it when it's done. We really don't need anymore afghans around here. I'm sure I'll find someone who needs it. :-)
If I want to get anything done, I better get off the computer and get busy. I wasted almost an hour trying to get these pictures to load.
I hope you have a wonderfully warm and happy week.
