2013 is just around the corner

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was quiet, peaceful and lovely with just 3 of us home this year.  We were able to use the miracle of technology and Skype with most of our kids who are far away.  :)



My heart aches for all the families who recently lost their precious children because a madman chose to take their lives.  We are praying for you, for comfort, and peace and hope to return.

For my readers, if you love to craft like I do, you can do something to cheer up their community and the new school where the children will be attending after the new year.  You can read about it here on Facebook:

For those of you who don't have FB, here is the basic idea and a mailing address:
The Sandy Hook school in Newtown CT is asking for people to send handmade snowflakes so that they can decorate the new building as a “winter wonderland” for the students. Each snowflake can be unique--they can be paper, crocheted, knitted etc. and any colors are fine!
Let’s send as many as we can!!
Please send all snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to:

Connecticut PTSA
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12Suite 103
Hamden CT 06514
If you need a pattern, this one is fairly simple to crochet:
