My New Year's Start

Happy New Year!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while but my whole family has been sick!  One after the other - even the baby got sick and my brother had to go home to his pediatrician after only being in a day and a half :C

I finished five of my eight afghans and I'm almost done with two more.  The last is halfway done and I will show you those soon!

I always have a new start on New Year's Day and this year it is Yarr!

No progress pic yet as I have only barely started him but I will show whatever I have tomorrow.

I'm not 100% sure if I'm doing Crazy January as it should be done but I am going to start some sort of project - cross stitch, crochet, puzzle, organizing - something - every day this month and pester you all with posts!

For Christmas gifts, my sister got me two HAEDs - classical paintings instead of my usual :D

'Meeting on the Turret Stairs'

and 'King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid'

and a friend in the writing community (I like to write short stories) got me this off my HAED wishlist:

'I Hear Silence' by Adele Sessler
