A little winter break... Just popping by to let you know that for a few days I'll be more offline than online. This week in our region most children have off school for a week's winter holiday. While I'll not exactly be on holiday, I'm taking the break theme in mind to...
* recharge my batteries
* reestablish a better morning routine
* sink a little deeper into Lent & Lent reading/prayer
* work towards completing some yarn & fiber projects
* sketch out some ideas for new additions to the garden and order seeds
* get a start on spring cleaning, which I usually do during Lent
* carve out a bit more time with TJ and our sweet Luna
Speaking of yarn and fiber, I thought I'd give a shout-out about a great group I participate in...Crafternoon Treats on the online fiber community of Ravelry. This was a group started a couple of years ago by the lovely Kathryn of Crafternoon Treats, who is a crochet designer and yarn business owner who shares great projects, patterns, tutorials, yarn and more via her blog, podcast and her Etsy shop. The Crafternoon Treats group is a fun bunch of folks from all over the world who simply love crochet and knitting! I've been part of the group for nearly a year now, and shortly after the new year I was invited to join the admin/moderators team. My "job" is to welcome new members, and answer any questions, if I can, etc. But the bulk of what I really do is encouragement--cheerleading, of a sort--by offering uplifting comments, advice, etc. It's a lot of fun, and I get to share my projects with other happy yarn crafters. There are a couple of chatter threads where we can feel free to share more about ourselves/lives beyond the yarn-ing. And lots more fun too. If you love knitting, crochet or anything fiber, and love to share about it, please do come join the group! I'd love to see you there! :)))
So back to my hook and yarn... oh, knitting needles and yarn too... and more! I'll see you in a few days!
