Out with the Old, In with the New

It’s been a chilly windy end to the year up here on my mountain.  I have spent a good part of yesterday and today tidying my work areas in preparation for the busy months ahead.  Sort of my own version of out with the old and in with the new.

Sarah had been helping me, but today had to take a rest since she caught the stomach bug I had nearly a week ago. So we are keeping her curled up on the sofa with warm blankets and a cozy fire in the wood-stove.

I will have some new designs in my M2H Design line to show all of you early in 2012.

In the meantime, I’m wishing all my readers a very warm healthy and  Happy New Year.

An Inverse Operation

Today I am attempting to catch my breath after a whirlwind week of work and fun at the Greensboro Chain Link show.  Last you heard from me I was packing up to head out.

I spent most of this past Monday traveling home. As my husband drove me home from the airport I was amazed to see all the Autumn color that had made an appearance on our mountain in such a short period of time.  Even down in the plains around Denver and Boulder there were dashes of fall color in the foliage.

My Front Yard

Now comes the un-packing (the Inverse Operation mentioned in the title), the piles of laundry from my travels as well as the accumulation of dirty clothes from my family to be dealt with.

Once I get that all ticking along I’ll be taking some pictures of the yummy yarn that came home with me as well as other tales of Chain Link. Though, still respecting Doris Chan’s rule that “What happens at Chain Link, stays at Chain Link”. 

Amazing enough, I didn’t consume gobs of chocolate this time, was far too busy to actually remember it. Must do better next year.
