If you don't ask???......

.... you don't get!!
I haven't bought magazines for ages, but decided I 'd treat myself this year,  so bought a year's subscription to this quilting mag... imagine my horror when in my very first one, there was the advert  inviting people to subscribe with a gift of these cottons. I was very annoyed as I had no gift offered me! So I phoned the firm and complained and asked if I couldn't be considered for the gift as I had only just taken out the subscription. It was sorted by cancelling the one I had and re-signing  for a new subscription,  which would qualify me for the gift. These 4 pks of gorgeous cottons! And I love the magazine too.
It's true.. if you don't ask you don't get! 
Have you taken out any subscription?

Slow progress!

Although I have a 'go' most evenings I am slow!  I had to have a few evenings rest, because my arm was aching so much but I am carrying on. 
It's seems ages since I have been able to crochet. 
At least I am doing something instead of just sitting, although I am slow I am enjoying it.
My crafty life has started again!!

I am so excited, I am crocheting!!

I have decided to abandon my Sunshine and Showers throw, it was taking me too long with its complicated pattern. 
So I checked out Lucy's latest ripple blanket. I am using the wool  I bought for  the Sunshine and Showers throw.
I wanted to work out the colour order so hence the pegs.
Gosh these took some patience, of course I do only have one working arm.

I don't know if this will be my colour order I am still playing around with them.
I have such admiration for Lucy, not only is she very talented but very generous with her ideas... thank you Lucy!
Although I am not using her colours, some of mine are the same,  as I bought it from Wool Warehouse. I shall look at my wool stash to add some other colours, I have bags full, that I packed to come with us.
I am on row 4 already! 
I always get excited with something new, do you?

Will you join me?

Wendy is a gifted Bible teacher. I have done everyone of her Bible studies and each one has grown me more and given me a deeper understanding of God's Love.
This one starts January 22nd and I am looking forward to reading her book and following her teaching and receiving her prayers.
You can buy her book from Proverbs 31 or Amazon.

Look up her blog  http://wendyblight.com

A prayer from Wendy for this coming year


You are holy, and You call me to holiness. Not perfection. Holiness. Help me know the difference. You created me in Your image and call me to be more like You. I confess at times, my heart wanders. My speech disappoints. My actions fail. Draw me closer to You. Keep me alert to Your voice. Give me a teachable mind and ears to hear the whispers of Your sweet Spirit. Clothe me with humility. Enable me to submit to Your Word. Use it to penetrate those deep places in my heart that resist change.

Getting busy

We finished this on Friday evening and thought it was difficult, but the one we've started is wow... very, very difficult. A present from #1ds He must think I am super clever??
I do find them relaxing even when I can't find the one piece to complete a part!

But I have also started to crochet, yeah I can....these are some of the flowers  for my CAL.
So I might get it finished the year.. perhaps??
Anyone else promising themselves, that they will finish a WIP this year?
