Way back before I got sick with a two month case of bronchitis/sinus and ear infection, I started a birthday surprise (shawl) for my youngest daughter. I did not have time to finish it. I was able to finish it yesterday.
I crocheted a pattern I found on the Internet, with a shimmer green yarn. This was a complicated pattern for me, so crochet experts (after taking a very close look) may give me a bad grade. However, my daughter loves it, and it's one more project completed.
I am also busy making more truffle mold ornaments for gifting and for the kids. Each one will have an ornament with a photo of their animal(s) in each one. When these are completed, I will box the rest up for Christmas 2012.
In my quest to get back in shape (after my husband's sister almost passed away and I got sick two times), I have been able to drop 10 pounds. That part is easy.....it's the rest that will take time. However, I am ready to shed it and get in shape and be more energetic.
Today, I hope to work on my loooong list of unfinished projects. And exercise of course.
