Today is January 1, 2018. Happy New Year to you all. We stayed in last night, had a good dinner, then popped the cork at 12 mn, watched a bit more tv as we were enjoying the bubbly and called it a night. I hope if you were out and about you were safe and warm.
That's the last completed projected, emphasis on the word completed for the year 2017. This knitted afghan wasn't yet laundered or blocked in this picture, thus it's not laying out super nicely. Once blocked it will be added to the donations for the homeless through my blog, Bridge and Beyond.
This afghan was completed just prior to the one above. Was pushing hard at the end of the year to get them done. The center pink was a small square someone had donated to Bridge and Beyond, and I added to it, to make an afghan. It too was laundered, blocked, and donated.
This was a cute ferry garden we saw while traveling in Ireland in the fall. The trip truly being a highlight of the year.
You can talked about Ireland and Scotland without thinking about Castles! WOW and then some. I've posted some, and will continue to post about Ireland and Scotland on my travel blog, Traveling Suitcase. Please enjoy traveling virtually with me.
In some respects this has been a good year, I traveled to Ireland and Scotland, as mentioned above. I returned to a favorite spot, Hilton Head and Park City in Utah for vacations both with hubby, daughter, and girl friends on different trips. I love to travel. But, it's also been a difficult year. I've lost a cousin rather suddenly that took me by shock. Somehow we all think we have endless time and can do tomorrow, or call someone tomorrow. Just isn't always the case.
Politically, I am extremely dishearten by the person occupying the White House when he's not playing golf at one of his private clubs and charging The American Public for it.
I hope 2018 holds some improvements for people suffering from illness.
And tomorrow, will be another day, January 2, 2018
Hope you noticed a new badge I added to this blog to join a blog linky party that focuses on yarn! Oh lovely yarn. Check out the badge upper left, Ginx Craft.
