A Fresh Start


Greetings friends, Happy 2015! 

The holidays came and went like a flash for me this year. 

Since my last post, ("A Real Pumpkin Farm") Thanksgiving happened, I 

celebrated the big 50th Birthday, then Christmas was here and gone before I 

could catch my breath! Whew! 




Last year, 2014, I started a photo a day challenge on Instagram and managed to finish 

that without a hitch, Yay! 

  While I did meet lots of new friends and had a great time, I feel like I 

neglected my blog, and that made me sad.  





So, here I go 2015 slowly but surely making a fresh start! 

Hopefully they'll still be a few of you out there that haven't given up on me. 

***

This week is my MIL's birthday, so one of the gifts I have for her are these 

crocheted, heart coasters I made. 

(yes, I am STILL a crocheting, crazy cat lady) LOL! 




Another project I finished is this afghan/throw I made for my 

favorite reading chair. 

Hum...looks like I might have to see if Fetzer and Lucy will let me 

use it. :-) 




I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to 

getting back to visiting all of your blogs to see what you've been up to. 


I'll be back...:-) 

Sooner than later this time! 


Becca

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Your header images are so lovely. And that jadeite! Swoon. Seeing those coasters and that lovely bit of crochet in your header is making me want to crochet with some neutral colors. Hmmm... think you just inspired a project. :)

Hope you have a wonderful 2015!!

Happy New Year! Nice to "see" you! I'm crocheting, too ... nothing as elaborate, but using up stash (that's a good thing)!

Becca!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so happy to see you in my feed, was wondering if you had dropped out of blogging or something.

HB, and hey 50 is nothing...you are gorgeous.

Do I find you on IG...going to look right now.

I was not blogging for a while, but made a comeback. ;o) Wishing you joy, love, peace and creative happiness and MUCH more in 2015! ((HUGS))

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Glad to see you post again. So many people have decided to make the complete switch over the IG, but there are many blog friends who aren't there, so I don't plan on giving up blogging just yet. Love all your crochet work, of course. Happy 50! Next month I'll be 49 so I'm a year behind you. :) Best wishes, Tammy
