Christmas Work Load

I am so ready for Christmas to get here all ready. I LOVE Christmas NOT the crazy work hours and load of Retail. Every year I start thinking about changing to something else work wise... and then another crazy season arrives and I do it all again.

We went up to my folks last Saturday and got to spend some time with them and  these little munchkins...

We had a nice time but were sore the next day from getting down on the floor to play with the kids. Stupid bodies!

And I have been crocheting; I started making a hat for a little girl in North Dakota that is not going to have much of a Christmas as the families funds have gone to a funeral for her Great- Grandma, I need to pick up some different yarn and make 3 hats to add to the small gifts that I have purchased for her and her 2 siblings. Here is the hat I made that turned out too small...

When I posted a picture to Facebook of this little hat it creating a couple orders for hats by a friend. She wanted two hats for her twin nieces in pink camo with their initials on  them ad this is what I came up with...

She is thrilled with the hats! And I do believe they turned out REALLY nice.

Yesterday I made a bow for the wreath I am going to make for our front door. I just need to pick up some floral wire today. I am looking forward to having a wreath on the front of the house as we have not had one since moving here.  Thats all I have to share at the moment.

I hope all are doing well~!


  1. I worked in a craft store many moons ago and remember the extra work caused by seasons. I have seen how busy the workers are at Michael's this year since I've been going there to buy some things. Will you be setting up Valentine's day before Christmas is over? :-)

    Your hats are adorable!

    May your holidays be filled with love, peace and joy ~ FlowerLady

    1. We will be getting Spring flowers in just a couple weeks and wind chimes. But Valentines should be arriving anytime now.

  2. Oh Becky you are such and awesome giving person. I love that about you. HUG B

    1. Is there such a thing as "Crochet SHoulder"? I think I am going to be suffering with that by the end of this month.

  3. Fantastic hats, Becky. I am sure they will be well loved.
