The real heartfelt thanks and some random work!

My Cluttered mantle with new heart accents!

Close up and yes I collect Angels!

A heart for my daughters Valentines tree!

Me with my chain grouping scarf!  I have seen many on the internet but once again did my own thing.  I did not cut my yarns but kept joining and making new loops!

So there you have it!
My TRUE heartfelt thanks!

Heartfelt thanks!

I just wanted to thank all who have stopped by to visit my blog and my new followers! I have some now!
I am a little behind in the blog partying as I worked extra this weekend and my son had his wisdom teeth surgery today!
But wanted to thank you all ( group wide- sorry not individually )!
Here are some hearts for you to view!
I did a search for the heart patterns and combined 3 different ones till they looked good! Enjoy!

Oooooops well I cannot figure out how to get a photo from my iPad on here...  Darn I will try to get some help from someone with tech knowledge!
See you soon!

Grow your blog party

Hi! My name is Norma and I have signed up to participate in a Grow your blog party sponsored by

I started writing this blog to get feedback on my projects and connect with other crochet crafters.  I started my blog in 2012. I have enjoyed writing and posting photos of my work.  I have not sold any but have done work for charity.
My goals for my blog remain the same. I do hope to meet others, share ideas and get inspired.

A little about me: I am a newly turned 50 with two adult children.  I am super proud of my kids - they are hard working loving young adults.  I work full time as a physical therapist.  To make a long story short, I took the name of my blog from comments from my kids about too much yarn and my lack of time!

I hope you will visit my blog, follow it and leave comments!
Thanks for stopping by!

PS so sorry that I could not figure out how to post the photo link from Vicki

Happy New Year but with end of the year projects!

Happy New Year!  I hope that you have a great year filled with smiles and laughter.   If there be tears - or for me it is when there are tears, may they cleanse our hearts and help heal wounds!
This is a photo of "commissioned" work!  My daughter's coworkers wanted hats - one green with ear flaps and the other a stocking hat.  The ear flap was a piece of cake but it is the first hat that I have made that I crocheted the earflaps as I went instead of adding them after.  I think it turned out well!  The stocking hat was a little tougher!  First of all, I hate counting stitches and I hate following a pattern so of course, I used about 3 different ones and made it my own!  It is so heavy though!  I hope that my daughter's friend likes it.  I don't sell for profit- I only asked for the cost of the yarn.  To be honest, the time we put in our works is hard to put a price on!  
I still have a few more projects to share that have a tiniest bit of work yet to finish so- look for more posts soon!

Best wishes for a GREAT 2013!
