A new beginning, a new year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
Have not been online much in the past week with Christmas, kids home, and the past few days up in Salt Lake City to see our son Christopher and daughter-in-law Danielle! We had a wonderful time. Salt Lake is gorgeous all lit up for Christmas and the New Year.

The girls and I went to Christophers ward and then headed to the LDS Conference center to see the New Year's Eve Youth Fireside. We got there at about 4:30 and our seats were way down in front so we could hear and see everything so well. What a blessing.

William Joseph performed -- amazing, talented pianist. If you have never heard of him you really need to go to his website and hear him play. His music is filled with emotion and beauty.

Also, some of our Church leaders including President Hinckley spoke and it was incredibly inspiring and uplifting. I came away just so filled with the love of our Heavenly Father.

This is a whole new year for Humanitarian Crafting and I intend to make the best of my time involved with this. Our Logandale Stake Humanitarian project ended, but Crafting Angels will be going strong and so will I. So many people in need. I have to find some more local type projects for us to work on too...

Hubby starts his FARMERS Insurance job this week and that is exciting. He is going to do so well.
HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE even more this year!

I don't think I have seen any sewn mitts for preemies. I have crocheted and knitted on this page

Type in a google search for "Preemie sewn mitten patterns"

If I find any I will add them. You could also go to the store and buy a pair of the little scratch mitts for newborns and take them apart to create a pattern.
