12 Days of Separation!

Hi Friends,

It’s been 12 days since my last blog post.  Can that even be right?!

My days have been pretty full and my goal this month is to try and keep focused on Jesus, my Joy.  So far so good.  🙂

Up until today we haven’t had much snow.  But today is a different story! And a week ago or so we had such bad freezing rain and ice that schools were closed for a day.  You know it’s bad when OUR schools close, ’cause they hardly ever do!

I am finishing up the last of my product orders and now all I am selling in my shop are patterns until the end of December.  I actually published a new pattern today, Easy Elegance Fingerless Gloves.  We’ll see if it generates any interest.  🙂

I sure hope you are all doing well.  Remember to choose (and pray for) peace and joy instead of worry and negativity.  And if you are sad or hurting this season, I pray that you will find love and comfort in Jesus our Immanuel (God with us).

Adoring Him,

Jackie

I got to go to dear son's play again (2nd time). This is what the set looks like for Christmas on the Yukon.

It's beginning to look a lot like ... a snowstorm!

Another cup cozy order on it’s way!

crochet fingerless gloves - charlotte's yarn

Crocheted 3 pairs of these gloves this week in black, purple, and light blue. Didn’t get a good photo of any of them!

crochet 2 in 1 - first

Adding these to post this afternoon. Just remembered that I also crocheted these this week. 2 in 1 boot cuffs. 🙂

Hi Friends,

I didn’t get a good picture of all my projects this week, but here are a few that I had fun with! This little heart was especially rewarding (it’s the small things) because I was never quite sure what to do with this particular “yarn”. Have you used it before? What have you made with it?

I would love to stay and chat some more, but I have to get it in gear since I need to run to the post office before it closes for the day.

I will check in again soon, though.

Happy Saturday!

Joyfully,

Jackie

P.S.  You can click on “little heart” or HERE and reach the pattern.  The only thing I did differently was to use a magic circle instead of ch4 at the beginning.  I then did 4 tr instead of 3 to start.  Continue on as described in pattern. (All stitches are either stitched into the 1st chain of ch4 or the magic circle.)

And The Winner Is…

Hi Friends,

My give-away game ended last night with the announcement of the big winner on my Facebook page.  🙂 Ms. Stephanie B. won the Fingerless Gloves!  Yay Stephanie!  I asked each participant to comment on which item in my shop they liked best and it looks like the one that got the most votes was the listing for the FANtastic Boot Cuffs.  Second runner up were the fingerless gloves.  I really appreciate that feedback.  And it is kinda funny that I didn’t even know about boot cuffs before I opened my shop last year.  🙂  Coincidentally, today I am finishing up an order for a pair and sending them on their way across the country.  What fun!

Thanks to all who played and shared their kind and valuable feedback!

Blessings!

Jackie
