I Am Still Here

Yes it has definately been quite some time since I have blogged! I get so snowed under before Christmas and of course after when the kids and Mr Brickie are on holidays. I have to compete with four others for the computer which is near impossible let me tell you. We have also had a lovely time away at Coles Bay which was so relaxing even if the weather was a bit cold.

Did I finish Lizard Ridge before Christmas? I have to admit that I didn't but I only have 4 squares left to do. I have been working on hats and of course learning how to play the autoharp. I practice for around an hour a day so that also eats into my knitting and blogging time. It sure is fun and I had forgotten how much fun playing it is, I had to start from scratch but it soon all came back to me and besides it is a very easy instrument to play.

I don't really have any FO's to show except for one 1920's style flapper hat that has sold at my Etsy shop.



and these cute little guys that were left over from the car boot sale that I sold some things at.




They are also listed over at Etsy. So there you have it really the holiday life of Sharon, Ashley is hovering around me as I write this looking to see when I will be off so he can go and battle Pokemon. Mr Brickie is back to work on Monday so a little bit more of a routine will be back into our household. Till next time, happy knitting.

Yes, I was wondering what you were up to! It's hard when you have lots of interests, to make progress in any one area. You are one busy lady! Happy New Year.

I have a photo that my cousin sent me many years ago that was taken of her at Coles Bay. She's from Launceston, too. (I'm in the U.S.) Your comment just made me think of it! Your hats are beautiful, by the way.

Hi! I know what you mean. That's how it's been around here. Well, the computer is mine (right now) LOL

Your little phone guys are so cute. Too bad I don't have a cellphone.

Indeed welcome back! The holidays are great but it's always good to get back to "real life", whatever that is!

I've been busy in non-knitting ways, too.

Yep, holidays are like that. We think we will have so much time because it's holidays and yet it just gets filled up with so many other things. At least they are fun things :)
