Carolyn.... by cat vote, Carolyn is the winner of the Christmas contest. As you can see we did it very fairly, the siamese cat Sasha, is Cheryl's and the fluff ball is Doug, Jared's cat. Carolyn, if you contact me we can decide if you want yarn that I have already dyed or if you want me to dye you some special. You decide.
After the excitement of the contest, we settled down to the business of Christmas. I was very busy making soap bags, and face cloths for Mary's mother, sisters and sisters-in-law as Christmas gifts. Julie helped me make some soap and let me buy some of her other soaps that she had made previously. So that was their gifts. I also made the Celtic Braid Socks for my mother-in-law Fran with yarn that Kelsie and I dyed this summer with the wild raspberries and some purple dye. So we were set. Or so we thought. On Monday afternoon, my mom went to a doctor's appointment where they did an EKG. It was abnormal. So they sent her to the hospital, where they kept her. Seems that she had had at least one heart attack if not more. So into the hospital she went, and stayed. She was there Christmas, and Wednesday at Holy Family hospital and then she was transferred into St. Elizabeths where they put a stent into her right cardiac artery. Now she is home and feeling much better. But with that and everyone at our house being sick it has been an interesting week. I am currently working on a chemo cap for a woman that I work with that is battling breast cancer for a 2nd time. I will post pictures when it is more done.
For Christmas I received my very own sock blockers YAH!!!. I will post pictures of them and the yarn that went with them next post. Have a great NEW YEAR!
