We celebrated Christmas today with Jake. This is what it's all about.

Oftentimes at Thanksgiving, I purchase amaryllis to give to family and one for me. I don't try to get them to re-bloom. For me, it's just easier to purchase new bulbs, but I won't buy a bulb unless the bud is emerging. Though planted at the same time, my son's is already blooming, and mine has just started to grow. Once they start, they grow amazingly fast, so I should have blooms in a couple weeks.

I finally found time to pick up my hook, and sadly though I have MANY patterns on linen ready to hook, I don't have one color planned. "Needing" to hook something, I grabbed a piece of linen and drew up some hearts that I am hooking with hand torn strips and will finish "Heavens to Betsy" style. In person, you don't notice the linen showing on the red heart. I will have to do some manipulating of the loops.
In college (many, MANY years ago) I did a little crocheting. I mean very little. I think the only stitch I knew was the single crochet. I've decided that I want to crochet some infinity scarves (having been inspired by Bobbie, the Evening Stitcher) who gifted me one last year. Thank goodness for You Tube. I am giving it a try, though I need to work on my tension. I also ended up twisting my chain so I need to undo and start over.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
