Not much going on here...

 I finally finished this swirl tabletopper.  Seems like it took me forever.  I love the pattern..Trish Kristoffersen design.  Soon to be listed at my shop..

I have started another tree....just like this one.....  I think I am doing the branches differently as I think my mom may have not fully read the instructions...this one pictured is the first one I made..and the branches are done mom's way...I have made this tree quite a few times now..have blisters to prove it...and I do the branches differently than this tree's branches.....I am making it in white..and haven't decided what color of lights to use..love the look of multi colored lights, but all my trees are made like that..I went to the dollar store last year and cleaned them out of the white wired lights..I wasn't too particular about the color of the lights..just wanted the white wire..as it is really hard to find white wired lights..so I have pink lights, purple lights, blue lights, red lights, green lights..and multi colored lights..guess I will have to see what mood I am in when it comes to putting in the lights...

OH YEAH!!!!! I almost forgot...I was blog hoppin and I found  www.mooglyblog.com   and she was having a giveaway...for a baby crochet book.   I usually don't enter giveaways but this book has lots of little beanies..and I have been looking for cool looking beanies that aren't all girly....and happy dance ...out of almost 2000 entries....believe it or not...I won!!!!!  Go check out her blog...she has some cool stuff..  I hope you all are doing well and having no problems finding the joy...Thanks for taking the time out of your day to check in with me...until next time..find the joy, enjoy the journey..and may you be always blessed.

Hi Vikki, I so love the tree as well as the Doily is Beautiful. Maybe one day I will get back to Indiana and can see your beautiful crochet items.
