Happy New Year

Well it has been a month since I have posted to my blog - What can I say - December was quite the busy month at our house - lots of company - several luncheons, shopping, visiting and of course stitching and cooking!!

It was a wonderful holiday here at the Smith household - below is a picture of our family - bottom of the staircase is husband Terry, me, sister Jean, niece Jenna, daughter Lindsay and then son Jeremy.
Here is Jenna with her fingerless mittens that I made for her.
Jean with her fingerless mittens
Lindsay with her fingerless mittensJeremy received fingerless mittens last year, but would like to have another pair!! So what do you give a young man for Christmas!!?? How about a made by Mom pillowcase! ;o)))
Can you believe he just loved it - I am so glad.
Actually everyone received a handmade pillowcase - one also went to my sister's son, Justin who is working in Quatar.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Holiday season --- Happy New Year to you all.

Wishing you a very happy new year Roberta! Your Christmas looks festive and happy in your photos. I am glad you had your family with you. Love the fingerless mittens. My mother knitted me a pair which are long so I can stay warm and still do things. I wear them in the house. The pillowcase you made is so beautiful. I can see why your son loved it.

Hugs ~

What lovely Christmas family photos, Roberta. I love the one of you all on the stairs. You and your sister are SO alike :>) What a great line of happy smiling faces!!

The fingerless mittens are wonderful. What a lucky family they are to have such an accomplished knitter amongst them!! They must be so useful. The pillowcase is amazing too.
Warm wishes Angela xx
