Hi Friends!

We continue to enjoy the holidays with dear son on Christmas break from school.  We have been playing Settlers of Catan quite a bit in the evenings and absolutely love it!

Settlers Carl & Keaton

Also, in the last few days I’ve been working on crocheting, photographing, writing and publishing my latest pattern:  Highland Beauty Crochet Headband with Flower.  Yay!  As always, it seems that I need to get better photos for my Etsy listing (would like to get some outside shots with dear daughter), but they are adequate to publish for now.

Tonight will be pretty low key.  We often times get together with a certain family and play games, but that didn’t work out for tonight so we will go to dinner, play some games here at the house and watch “It’s A Wonderful Life” with dear son who ALWAYS watches that movie on New Year’s Eve as part of his holiday tradition.  🙂  Dear daughter will be out with friends and having fun too.

I hope that you have a very blessed New Year!  And thanks for being a special part of a wonderful community of blog friends in 2013.

Joyfully,

Jackie

Monday Evening Project

Hi Friends,

It’s been a peaceful evening.  Worked on this headband tonight.  Now I need to go back and write down what I did.  Lol!  Not sure I will use dark gray in the finished product.  Need to play around with some colors.  I like the snowflake idea with this headband instead of a flower.  First time using one.

Well, I guess I will “fly up with the chickens” as my mama use to say.  🙂

Hope you had a nice evening too.

Blessings!

Jackie

Note:  Poor picture quality, but at least it’s still viewable. 🙂

Crochet Headbands

Hi Friends!

Here in Alaska there is a love affair going on with crochet headbands.  And what’s not to love?  They are cozy, stylish, and made of yarn!

I tend to like crocheting the ones that taper in the back and don’t need a button, like the design modeled by my daughter in these pictures.  However, I crochet and appreciate the button kind too.

Have you crocheted headbands?  What is your favorite style to crochet?  And do you love wearing them, or do you prefer a hat?  So many questions!  Ha! 🙂

Have a fabulous Friday!

Joyfully, Jackie

Our 4th of July was a little chilly & rainy, so a headband came in handy.

And here's another style of headband that I crochet with the button closure in back.  I purchased the pattern.
